A man identified as Mustapha, has been apprehended by the authorities after he was nabbed with an explosive device at Living Faith Church (Winners Chapel), Sabon Tasha in the Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Nigeria.
It was gathered that the lone bomber had gained access into the church when the Close Circuit Camera of the church picked him.
It was also disclosed that this is not the first time the suspect is coming to the church in the guise of being a member of the parish.
The CAN Chairman in the state, Rev. Joseph Hayab, described as unacceptable the attempted suicide bombing of the church.

The Chief Security Officer of the church, Mr Ekpeyong Edet, said the suspect had already entered the church and sat down before he was accosted by security men.
Edet added that on searching the bag the suspect was carrying, an explosive device was found.
The suspect, it was learnt, was handed over to the police at the Sabon Police Station, while security was beefed up around the church.
