The news of the alleged invitation extended to the Bishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese Mathew Hassan Kukah by the Department of State Service DSS has been described as untrue.
The Director Social Communication Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Reverend Father Christopher Omotosho, who debunked the reports asked members of the public to ignore the rumour.
”The news that the Bishop was summoned for questioning by the DSS regarding his Christmas message cannot be true because the Bishop is yet to receive either call or mail from the DSS.”Omotosho said
Over the weekend, social media was agog with reports that the clergyman has been invited by the DSS over his comments about the Presidency. The Youth Wing of the Christians Association of Nigeria had threatened to mobilize Christian youths across the nation to accompany the bishop to the DSS Headquarters in Abuja.
