- A religious organisation has condemned the attempted bombing at a Living Faith Church in Sabo area of Kaduna state
- The organisation alleged that the suspect intended to cause a religious crisis in the country
- According to the inter-faith group, Samuel Nathaniel’s capture is evidence that God answers prayers and assurance that enemies of the country will be exposed
The National Inter-Faith and Religious Organization for Peace (NIFROP) has expressed gratitude to God over a failed bombing attempt at a Living Faith Church in Sabo Tasha, Chikun local government area of Kaduna state on Sunday, February 2.
The organisation said the bomber intended to start a religious war which was promptly averted by the security personnel within the church.
The lone bomber, Nathaniel Samuel, was reportedly spotted by the Close Circuit Camera Television (CCTV) of the church, according to the security officers, Samuel was accosted and handed over to the police at the Sabon Tasha Divisional Police Station.
NIFROP having recently commissioned 21-day fasting and prayer for the nation's peaceful coexistence said Nathaniel’s capture is an evidence that God answers prayers and assurance that enemies of the country will be exposed.
Reverend Jeremiah Abutu, who is the coordinating secretary-general for NIFROP said the incident would have led into national mourning and fingers pointed at wrong quarters.
Abutu said Nigeria is indeed on the path to greatness owing to the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari is God's anointed choice.
He also advised religious leaders in the country to quit the silence only because Nathaniel is Christian.
Abutu said: "This act is despicable as well as condemnable in the light that had the mission been successful; Nigeria would have been thrown into mourning of phenomenal proportion, and accusing fingers would have been pointed in the wrong direction, which would further heighten religious hostilities in the country. We thank God."
He also said it was revealed that the biggest victory for Nigeria against the agents of darkness would come after February 15.
Abutu said the said victory will make the world will see the real faces of those behind Boko Haram for he would bring disgrace to their doorsteps.
"They shall be no hiding place for them anymore as God has declared that enough is indeed enough for these agents of darkness fighting for the soul of Nigeria," he added.
