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.
Director Social Communication Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Reverend Father Christopher Omotoshop in a response to TVCNEWS request, advised members of the public to ignore the rumour..
He said 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.
The social media was awash at the weekend with stories of the summon of the Bishop by the DSS, a situation that has elicited reactions from many Nigerians.
The Youth Wing of the Christians Association of Nigeria had earlier in response threatened to mobilise Christian youth across the nation to accompany the bishop to the DSS Headquarters in Abuja.
But Reverend Father Omotoshop, the Diocese Spokesman has advised the general public to discard the rumour as the Bishop is yet to receive any letter either via mail or hardcopy or telephone call inviting him for any questioning whatsoever.
