The police have put a price on Kabiru Sokoto’s head. The above is alleged to the mastermind and prime suspect behind the bomb attacks on St. Theresa Catholic Church, Madalla, Niger State, that took place on Christmas Day. The incident claimed over 40 lives and left a lot more injured.
The Police High Command said that Sokoto was “wanted in connection with cases of bombing and terrorism across the Northern States of the Federation, especially the Christmas-Day bombing of a Church at Madalla, Niger State which resulted into wanton destruction of lives and properties” in a press release.
The release was signed by Deputy Commissioner Olusola Amore, the Force Public Relations Officer. Further information described the suspect as fair in complexion, fluent in English, Hausa and Arabic. His last residential address was in Bulletin Quarters, Abaji, in Abuja.
This comes after the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Hafiz Ringin, was given a 24-hour ultimatum by President Goodluck Jonathan to find Sokoto, who escaped from police custody a few days back.
