Senator Shehu Sani has said that most Nigerians have religious views about suicide bombers, hence making us lose our common ground for unity and brotherhood.
He stated this via his Twitter page after a suspected suicide bomber, identified as Nathaniel Samuel, was arrested on Sunday in Living Faith Church also known as Winners’ Chapel situated at Sabon Tasha, Chikun Local Government Area in Kaduna State.
The CCTV picked Samuel after gaining access into the church. According to the Chief Security officer of the church, Ekpeyong Edet, the suspect was monitored via CCTV and was promptly accosted by the security operatives on the ground.
He also said that the suspect successfully gained access into the church sanctuary and upon searching his bag, an improvised explosive device was found on him.
The suspect had been handed over to the police at the Sabon Tasha Divisional Police Station.
“There are those who are not happy that the alleged bomber ‘is not a Muslim’; there are those who are happy that the alleged bomber ‘is a Christian’.We view our common tragedies via our religious lenses and prejudices and hence lost our common brotherhood and humanity,” Sheh Sani tweeted.
Pastor Adeboye finally disembarking from the fence of caution,moderation and neutrality and leading a match against insecurity is commendable.Protest gives wings and wheels to Prayers.
