The suspect who was arrested for attempting to bomb Living Faith Church aka Winners Chapel, Kaduna, Nathaniel Samuel, has said he never knew the device found in his bags were explosives but fireworks.
While being paraded before newsmen, the Bauchi State indigene claimed he had gotten the bag from a woman named Grace after attending an event the previous day.
Nathaniel also explained how he had gotten to the church and felt the need to use the toilet only to be apprehended.
He added that he had thought the bag contained items for decorations, alleging that the police also confirmed the devices are fireworks and not explosives.
“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. 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.
“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. But at the long run, when they interviewed me at the police station, they discovered they are not explosives; they are mere fireworks for decoration”, he said.
Nathaniel was said to have attacked Winners chapel at Sabon Tasha area of Chikun local government area in Kaduna State on the same Sunday CAN organised a protest against killings and insecurity in the country.
