Reno Omokri has kicked against Nigerians abusing the General Overseer of Deeper Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi, over the alleged sexual abuse of Don Davis, a JS1 student of the Deeper Life High School.
The mother of Don Davis alleged a threat to her life after she went public with her son’s abuse.
She had accused the Akwa Ibom State government officials and some parents of indicted students of intimidation.
Following the outcry that her son was starved and molested in the school, Nigerians launched an attack on Pastor Kumuyi for being silent on the matter.
But Omokri in a post on his Instagram account said the attack on the clergyman was uncalled for.
He claimed the media lynching was unhelpful and likened blaming Kumuyi to blaming Christ for Judas’s behaviour.
“Abusing Pastor Kumuyi over the justice for Don Davis incident is uncalled for. The principal was speedily suspended. A 3rd party is investigating.
“Therefore, a media lynching is unhelpful. Blaming Kumuyi is like blaming Christ for Judas’s behaviour!
“JusticeForDonDavis shouldn’t be driven by media hysteria. What needs to be done seems to be going on.
“The state and police are investigating. If anything shady is ESTABLISHED to be going on with the probe, we should raise an alarm.
“If not, let’s be patient with the investigation. Many people genuinely care about Justice for Don Davis. But, a few people just want to trend by throwing mud at men, like Pastor Kumuyi, whose lives, though not perfect, are a pattern of good works.
“If he talks on issues under investigation, he will be preempting the investigation,” he wrote.
