One of the eyewitnesses to the attempted bombing of a Living Faith Church, a.k.a Winners Chapel, Kaduna during a Sunday service has narrated how the suspected bomber was arrested by the church security officers.
According to him, the way and manner the suspect, who has been identified as Nathaniel Samuel entered the church only to leave in no time and the way he was restless made some members alert the church security officers.
In his own words, It was all normal at the Living Faith Church, Sabon Tasha area of Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna state until a middle-aged man walked in with a black duffle bag.
Aside from his visibly dark lips and red eyes, the eyewitness who is also a church member, Sammy Jess, said the suspect was restless all through his stay.
Speaking further, Jess alleged the suspected bomber had packed a car at the church premises with explosives programmed to go off at the end of the service.
“I made up my mind to be in Church this morning and whether the devil likes it or not I will surely be in Church. Not knowing that God in His infinite mercy will open my eyes once more to see the wondrous hands of His miracle,” Jess began.
“This young man came in and sat down a seat ahead of me with a duffle bag and in no time, he immediately stood up and made his way out but we became cautious and one of us alerted the security to stop him. Lo and behold it was a bomb that was set in Church (Living Faith Sabon Tasha, Kaduna) and another set inside a car in the church premises waiting for the service to close then he will strike it.
“Let’s all have a reason to say ‘God I thank you for giving me a second chance’,” he added.
The suspect was immediately arrested by the Police who prevented every attempt to lynch him.
The Kaduna State Police Command has assured investigation is going on.
Speaking with Channels TV, The Kaduna Police Command’s Public Relations Officer said Nathaniel Samuel has been taken to the investigation department of the Command for interrogation and investigation.
