How I got the bomb I took to church – Kaduna suspect
The suspect arrested in connection to explosive devices found in a church in Kaduna has said he was unaware of what he had in his possession when he entered the church building.
Nathaniel Samuel made this known on Tuesday while being paraded before journalists at the Kaduna State Police Command.
Mr Samuel who said he thought the item he was carrying was fireworks meant for decoration disclosed how he got it.
“I went to the church in the morning at about past 8 am, so while I was seating down, I was listening to the sermon from the man of God. All of a sudden, I had a stomach ache, so I decided to go and use the toilet,” Samuel, whose father has identified as a Christian, explained.
“When I came into the church I was holding a bag which contained some of my items, some of my documents because a day before that day, I went for an event at Ngwamboro, Sabo.
“When we got to the station, they suspected they were fireworks meant for decoration.
“We got it from the event through a lady I told them about and her name is Grace; when she gave it to me, I never knew what the devices were until after my bag was searched that I got to understand what they are. They are explosives,” he added.
