Torrents of condemnation continued to pour in from the Nigerian Muslims who have been reacting to the news of a would-be Christian suicide bomber, Nathaniel Samuel since his arrest by the Police.
News broke Sunday that a suspected suicide bomber has been apprehended at the Sabo, Kaduna branch of Bishop David Oyedepo’s Living Faith Church (also known as Winners Chapel).
He was arrested in the church’s toilet after he was exposed by the CCTV cameras, according to police report.
Although police has launched investigations into the case, Nigerian Muslims are happy that the man didn’t succeed in his nefarious attack on the Church, which they believe would have been blamed on Islam or the Muslims.
According to Mustafa Babatunde, “If the guy (Nathaniel Samuel) arrested had a Muslim name, the headline would have been different! Islam and Muslims would have been at the receiving end of several vitroilic attacks and condemnation from all these agents of Illuminati.
“The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Femi Fani Kayode and their ilk would have been crying foul by now, and insulting President Buhari and his Fulani ethnic group for the suicide attack against the church without knowing that the nefarious attack was carried out by their co-conspirators cum ‘brother-in-christ’.”
Yusuf Chinedozi Nwo also shared the same sentiment when he noted that, “This is Nathaniel Samuel, he was arrested today in Living Faith Church, Sabon Tasha, Kaduna with an explosive device. If he had succeeded in carrying out his nefarious act, he would have left no one in doubt as to who did it. Of course, the Muslims”.
He accused the press of criminal silence duplicity and looking the other way in reporting the incident, stressing that the incident has beaten their stereotyped and jaundiced journalism.
According to him, “What Nigerian Christians have deliberately refused to accept is that there is no war between Muslims and Christians, but that there is war between Nigeria and those funding and sponsored to destabilize her.
“If we continue to live in denial of this crystal-clear fact, we all stand to lose and posterity will judge us harshly. If the Press plays her role responsibly in this regard, these enemies of our nation might perhaps beat a retreat. But where they persist in their profiling and sensational reportage, they would have succeeded in joining forces with the enemies of our fatherland. Too bad”.
