A former senator, Dino Melaye, has warned President Muhammadu Buhari against attempting to arrest the bishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese, Matthew Kukah, for criticising the current administration.
The bishop has been under fire by some groups in the country for accusing President Buhari of crass nepotism.
Recall that The Tiv Youth Council Worldwide had accused the cleric of calling for an overthrow of the president and asked security agencies to investigate the cleric.
However, Melaye has suggested that such an action against the religious leader would prompt a backlash from the people.
He warned that if Kukah is arrested, the president will be shown that the government is not owned by him but by the people.
