The responsibility for a June 25 bombing in Wuse II, Abuja, and an explosion same day at a fuel depot in Apapa, Lagos State, has been claimed by Boko Haram
The sect’s leader, Abubakar Shekau, in a new video seen by AFP Sunday, claimed responsibility for the attacks.
While the Abuja attack, a suicide bombing at Emab Plaza, left no fewer than 20 persons dead, the explosion in Lagos, which authorities said was an “industrial accident”, did not claim any life.
However, AFP investigations claimed the Lagos attack was a deliberate explosion.
Speaking about the Lagos incident, Shekau said in the video: “I ordered (the bomber) who went and detonated it”, while claiming responsibility for the “bomb in filthy Abuja”.
