Reverend John Hayab, the Kaduna State CAN chairman, has accused the state police command of mixing up the identity of the man who attempted to bomb the Living Faith church aka Winners Chapel in Sabon Tasha on Sunday February 2nd.
Speaking to Vanguard, Hayab said the church members who arrested the suspect before he was handed over the police, said that the suspect had identified himself as Mohammed Sani and not Nathaniel Samuel as announced by the state police command. In his words
“The attempted bombing of a Living Faith Church in Kaduna is a continuation of the sad experiences that Nigerians are no longer safe, even in places of worship. “This is a clarion call to the security agencies to do more to protect the people. However, we must commend the church for taking precautionary measures.
We must make it clear that it was not the police that arrested the suspected suicide bomber. It was the church members that noticed his actions, became suspicious and arrested him. “But the controversy we have before us, is that the police clearly did not do thorough background checks on who the suspect was before announcing his arrest to the public.
Church members who arrested the suicide bomber reported that he gave his name as Mohammed Sani, and that he was on a mission to kill.” However, as a religious body, we don’t care whether he is Muslim or Christian. We only know he nursed a criminal intention to shed innocent blood. That should be the concern of Nigerians rather than debate over his identity.” he said
