A yet to be identified 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.
A man who identified himself as the Chief Security at the church, Ekpenyong Edet, confirmed this to journalists at the scene.
He said 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 journalists to wait to get details from the presiding pastor when the service was over.
He 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 journalists that the suspect had actually been brought there.
He however directed journalists to speak to the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO).
Efforts to reach the PPRO as at time of filing this report proved abortive as he failed to pick calls.
