Following the arrest of the suspected bomber at a Living Faith Church in Sabo area of Kaduna on Sunday, February 2, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) the act is an opener.
In his reaction to the arrest of Nathaniel Samuel at the Winner's Chapel located in Sabon Tasha in Chukun local government area, the director of MURIC, Ishaq Akintola, said the organisation is not surprised that the suspected bomber is a Christian.
Akintola said concerns have been raised severally on the presence of Christain version of the dreaded Boko Haram terrorist group.
He said when the "Christain Boko Haram members" bomb churches, the whole world blame Nigerian Muslims for the act.
Akintola said: “We’re not surprised that the suspect happens to be a Christian."
"We’ve said it on several occasions that there is a Christian version of Boko Haram. Christians bomb churches and the whole world blame Nigerian Muslims for the atrocity," Akintola said.
Citing examples, Akintola said at several occasions, Christain bombers have been arrested by security operatives in an attempt to carry out terrorist activities.
He said: "The arrest of Nathaniel Samuel for attempting to bomb this church is not a new development. Victor Moses was arrested on March 1, 2016, for spying for Boko Haram bombers. He confessed that he carried out surveillance before the bombing of Madalla church in Abuja on December 25, 2011.”
