Main suspect of Christmas day bombing of St. Theresa’s Catholic Church, Madalla, near Abuja, on December 25, 2011, Kabiru Sokoto, is receiving treatment at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital (AUTH), Gwagwalada. According to Leadership Newspapers.
Sources at the hospital told that the suspect was brought to the hospital unconscious by some soldiers.
Islamist sect Boko Haram had claimed responsibility for the December 25 church bombing that claimed scores of lives. Kabiru Sokoto, the prime suspect, was arrested by security operatives, but he escaped from custody and was later rearrested in Jalingo, the capital of Taraba State.
30 year old member of the family of Umaru Jabbi of Gagi village, Sokoto South local government area of Sokoto State, Kabiru was instrumental in the visit of the late national leader of Boko Haram, Mohammed Yusuf, to Gagi village in February 2009, during which Kabiru was declared leader of the sect in Sokoto State.
Kabiru's legs were chained to the bed. and the entrance of the ward padlocked!
The CMD of AUTH, SSS however, maintained that they were not aware that the suspect was brought to the hospital, adding that he would get the details today.
None of the doctors or nurses on duty was willing to speak. The administrative block of the hospital was deserted and no staff member was seen around.
According to SSS's Orgar,
“I don’t know where you got that information from. I am sure that information is not from the State Security Service. Whoever is giving you that information, you should go and meet that person for confirmation. I don’t have any idea of what you are talking about, sir.” She said.
Prodded further to confirm if Kabiru Sokoto was still alive, she said, “I say I don’t have any information of what you are talking about, sir. Thank you.’
We just hope there's no fowl play from any quarters.
