The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Yakubu Sabo had confirmed that the suspect named Nathaniel Samuel was a Christian from Bauchi State.
Reacting to the arrest, Fani-Kayode faulted reports that the suspect was a Christian.
In a series of tweets, the former Minister said anyone who believed claims that the suspect was a Christian should have his head examined.
He recalled what a 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”.
On his part, Fani-Kayode wrote:
“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.”
