Engineer Dafup Was Arrested For Allegedly Converting Nabila From Islam To Christianity

A man identified as Engineer Simput Eagles Dafup has been arrested for allegedly converting one Miss Nabila Umar Sanda Galadima from Islam to Christianity on a flight from United Kingdom. The man was arrested by the Department of State Services, DSS after a raid on his home in Jos, Plateau state.

Controversy is trailing the alleged conversion of a Muslim girl to Christianity as the girl’s father was said to have requested the intervention of members of the State Security Service (SSS) who allegedly arrested the girl’s male friend, Engineer Simput Eagles Dafup in Plateau State.

Daily Trust gathered that Nabila Umar Sanda, 18, and daughter of a traditional title holder in Biu, Borno State was reported to have been abducted in Abuja on December 1, 2017.

Unable to reach Nabila, who finished from Air Force Comprehensive College, Jos and a 200 Level student of Mass Communication at the Bingham University in Nasarawa State, her father was said to have reported to the SSS that his daughter was missing following which she was traced to the house of one Pastor Jerry Datim in Jos.

However, Datim told Daily Trust on phone that Nabila had converted to Christianity while at Bingham University and had met Dafup, a lecturer, in Ghana four years ago on a flight to Dubai.

The pastor said Nabila had recently reconnected with Dafup who was visiting Jos for the Christmas break and expressed her intentions to fully convert to Christianity.

Pastor Jerry further explained that though Nabila’s father was aware of her intention to convert, he had said it was unacceptable by him.

“After they assaulted my family, I took the matter to the Plateau State Administrative Secretary of JNI, Sheikh Abdulazeez Yusuf who was unhappy with the development and arranged a meeting with the SSS. Even at the SSS office, when they asked why I didn’t take the girl to the police station, it was the JNI that answered by telling them that we have been working together to resolve such issues without involving security.”

Dafup’s mother, Lydia Istifanus Dafup yesterday in a press conference said her son had been tortured before taken away and pleaded for his release.


  1. The father of the girl has acted foolishly. He could have worked on his child not to accept Christ however, the child being matured has right to take decision for the Christ under law whereas the pastor could be liable if it were to be that the boy was underage. I want to pray that the Lord will strengthen the heart of the servant of the Lord and the counsel of God will stand. The father of the boy should also know that if he should do anything to the pastor, he has signed off the whole family to Christ and His kingdom. In our kingdom, the blood of a righteous man transfers the anointing to the unbeliever and the least number usually affected is ten fold. If heathen knows this, they would have leave believers live for Christ.
