Just as the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pa Enoch Adeboye led members on a prayer walk to decry insecurity in the country, a man has been apprehended with what is suspected to be an improvised explosive device (IED) at the Sabon Tasha branch of the Living Faith Church, aka Winners Chapel in Kaduna.
AUTHENTIC News Daily gathered from a source at the church that this was not the first time the suspect was coming to the church, adding that just last week he came but was sent away.
A source at the church, Ekpenyong Edet, who said he is the Chief Security officer of the parish confirmed this when our correspondent visited the scene.
He informed that the suspect was monitored on a CCTV Camera, carrying the bag into the church auditorium.
He successfully gained access and was seated before he was suspected and the bag searched, only to find the explosive device.
Edet who said he was not in a position to hand out details to the press, appealed to our correspondent to wait to get details from the presiding pastor when the service was over.
Hr however, said the suspect had been handed over to the police and moved to the Sabon Tasha Division of the Nigeria Police Force.
An officer at the station confirmed to our correspondent that the suspect had actually been brought there, when we went to get more details, but directed us to speak to the Police Public RelationscOfficer (PPRO).
Efforts to reach the PPRO as at time of filing this report proved abortive as he failed to pick calls nor respond to message sent to his WhatsApp messenger.
