The Borno State-based pastor, Kallamu Musa-Dikwa, who accused the Christian Association of Nigeria of collecting N7bn from President Goodluck Jonathan to campaign against the APC Presidential candidate, Maj-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari(retd.), has raised the alarm that operatives of the Directorate of State Service are after his life.
While maintaining that the christian body collected the said amount, Dikwa said the DSS operatives had forced him to sign a document, which they plan to “show the entire world that President(Jonathan) did not bribe CAN to work against the Presidential candidate of the APC.”
The cleric said the DSS planned to use the ‘document’, which he signed under duress in some national dailies, to portray him as telling lies against the body of Christ.
“They forced me to sign and promised to link me up with the CAN President, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, for us to ‘settle’,” he said.
He added that some Christian leaders, especially, the Abuja CAN Chairman, had pleaded with him to recant, by saying the Christian body never collected the said amount.
The cleric in Kaduna on Thursday told a news conference that after the DSS had treated him like a “common criminal,” the operatives forced him to sign a document, to state that what he had said on the bribery saga was untrue.
According to him, since he broke the news on how the Christian body collected N7bn from Jonathan to work against the APC presidential candidate, his life had been under threat.
Dikwa explained that as soon as he finished addressing newsmen on the the alleged scam, the DSS invited him to their headquarters in Abuja and asked him to denounce that CAN did not collect a kobo from Jonathan.
The cleric said, “The DSS invited me to their office in Abuja. They wanted to know who gave me the information that CAN collected N7bn from Jonathan and I told them.
“They said all those I mentioned will be invited and told them to go ahead and invite them. I even told them how the money was disbursed.
“They also said they wanted to know whether the opposition All Progressives Congress is the one sponsoring me to tarnish the image of the CAN and they mentioned Sam Nda Isaiah(Publisher of the Leadership newspapers) and I told them my relationship with him is not political because since 2006, I have been with him. I told them, he(Sam) does not know anything about my revelation on the said money.
“They also asked what was my connection with the APC presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Rotimi Amaechi and I told them there is nothing that connects us. I told them whatever I said was done for the love of my country.
“After sometime, they went and drafted a letter, which says, ‘I Pastor Musa…’the information I gave that president gave CAN money was false and that I won’t do that again.
“They said I should copy what they wrote in my own hand writting. I have to do it because I was alone with them and I feel they could harm me and frame me up.
“They forced me to sign after writing what they drafted. I wanted to refuse but I fear for my life.”
