Rev Fr Kelvin Ugwu, a Nigerian Catholic Missionary priest has faulted Suleman’s testimony after the attack.

Recall that Suleman, while reacting to the alleged assassination attempt on his life on Friday evening, said “my life is in the hands of God, nobody can kill me.”

Fr Kelvin faulted Suleman’s testimony, saying it was wrong to “use other people’s misfortune to elevate your own story.”

According to him, the life of the Apostle is not more valuable than that of the police officers and civilians who were murdered in the unfortunate attack.

Fr Kelvin said on his Facebook page:

I have always said it here, when giving testimonies, be sensitive. Don’t use other people’s misfortune to elevate your own story.

“In their bid to assassinate you, seven persons were killed and you are like ‘my life is in the hands of God, nobody can kill me.’

“Well, I will not thank God that you survived the assassination, I will rather thank God that you admitted to knowing those that were behind the assassination and shooting.”

The preacher further urged security personnel in Nigeria as well as the government to take a thorough investigation into the matter.

He said:

I call on the police and the government to take it up from there. The lives of those seven persons matter so much. The minister’s life is not more valuable than theirs. A full investigation should be opened immediately until those behind the shooting are arrested and given what they deserve by law.”

Advising the followers on Suleman, he said:

And for those working closely with the minister, I will advice you take necessary precautions because it seems he knows something that is capable of putting you at risk, which you may not be aware of.”
