“ You have violated and you have broken the rules . And you have done what is not appropriate.
“ On Friday , we shut down some mosques at Kubwa . Today , we went around and said there should not be gatherings and we understand clearly well that you understand the holy books clearly well .

“ When the Messiah Jesus was asked question by the Pharisees about Czar . He said to them to give what belongs to Czar to Czar . And when Apostle Paul wrote to the Church of God that abided in Rome in Romans 13 : 1- 2 , he told them to be subject to all authority for they are being ordained by God . I know you understand that very clearly.

“ We said people should sit down and stay at home . And if they sit at home , whatever prayer they want to offer can be offered . That means that our prayers can be heard anywhere.

“ What you are doing is a contravention . It is a breach of the rule and as a people under God living and enforcing the law for such a time as this , we will do what is appropriate.

“ You will come with us for explanations ,” Attah said.
