Femi Fani-Kayode says it will be delusional to believe that the alleged suicide bomber who caused a bomb scare at the Living Faith Church, aka Winners Chapel, in Sabon Tasha area of Kaduna metropolis, on Sunday is a Christian.

The bomber, Nathaniel Samuel was said to have gained access into the church’s auditorium before he was arrested.

He was said to have hidden an improvised explosive device (IED) in his bag and snuck into the church but was monitored on closed-circuit television (CCTV) before he was arrested.

Edet said, “He successfully gained access and was seated in the auditorium before he was suspected and the bag searched, only to find the explosive device. ”

Nathaniel Samuel, who bears a Christian name has sparked argument among Nigerians — With some saying the name might be fake.

Reacting in a tweet, Fani-Kayode, a former Nigerian minister said on Monday thus:  If anyone really believes that the individual that attempted to plant a bomb in Winners Chapel, Kaduna is a Christian and that his real name is Nathaniel Tanko they need to have their heads examined. He is actually a Hausa Fulani Muslim and his real name is Mohammed Nasiru Sani.

Kaduna-based Pastor Azzaman, wrote: “The Kaduna bomb planter Mohammed Sani confessed to being forced in detention to bear Nathaniel Tanko in custody. He confirmed he is a Muslim & Fulani. He also claims an influential Muslim contracted him to bomb Living Faith Church Kaduna”.
