We’re doing God’s work –Dying suicide bomber
June 21, 2012 by Jude Owuamanam, Jos with agency report 83 Comments
A suicide bomber who was blown off with an explosive device he was carrying on Tuesday said on his deathbed that the group was doing “God’s work” and would not stop.
The suspected suicide bomber however died in the hospital on Wednesday, police in Bauchi said.
The police said the suspected suicide bomber died at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Teaching Hospital, Bauchi, where he was receiving treatment after the bomb he was carrying exploded.
They said the suspect was taken to the hospital by the Police, following injuries he sustained from the blast.
A statement by the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr Idris Abubakar, said the suicide bomber died in the hospital, where he was receiving treatment.
He said, “On June 19, at about 5.05pm, an anonymous caller informed the Divisional Police Officer, Township, Bauchi, that there was an explosion opposite ANPP Secretariat along Gombe road, Bauchi.
“The police went to the scene and on arrival, a young man was found at the scene seriously injured.
“Upon search by the police bomb experts, it was discovered that the unidentified man was hit by an improvised explosive device he was carrying.
“We recovered one revolver pistol and five rounds of life ammunition on him.’’
The statement added, “The bomber was rushed to the ATBUTH but died in the course of treatment.
“Before his death, the suicide bomber confirmed that he was member of Boko Haram Islamic sect.’’
On Tuesday, the suicide bomber had travelled by public transport for more than 393 km with the device from Yola, Adamawa State.
He was said to have concealed the bomb in his backpack.
The bomber was unfortunate when he carelessly dropped the bag on the floor to urinate in a corner.
The device subsequently detonated, dismembering his lower limb and fingers.
Shortly after the incident, while conscious and in pains, the bomber told onlookers – including police officers who had come to arrest him – that he was part of a larger cell of the terrorist Boko Haram sect who are infiltrating the city to carry out an assignment in “God’s name.”
He said his colleagues were on their way to the city from other towns.
When thoroughly searched, a gun was found on him, which the police reportedly took away.
