Following controversies over the true identity of Nathaniel Samuel who was arrested for trying to bomb a Living Faith Church, a.k.a Winners’ Chapel, in Kaduna.

'My Son Is A Christian Not A Muslim - Ezekiel, Nathaniel's Father Insists

However the father of the suspect Mr. Samuel Ezekiel, has confirmed that his son is a Christian, and not a Muslim as being speculated on social media.

Mr Ezekiel said this in his Marabar Demishi village in Kaduna. He said;

No! Not even for a single day has he been a Muslim.

The identity of Samuel has became so controversial that some reports said Samuel had told the Christian leaders who arrested him at the Winners Chapel branch in Kaduna that he was Mohammed Sani, only for the police to parade him as Nathaniel Samuel.

But it was found otherwise when reporters,  visited the father along with the Kaduna state chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Reverend Joseph Hayab.

According to his father, Nathaniel was born in 1991 and schooled in the state. His mother is from Nasarawa state even though she no longer lives with them.

He maintain that, his son has been a Christian and not a Muslim even for a single day. He denied that his son bears Mohammed Sani.

Ezekiel also said he was shocked when he was told that his son carried a bomb into a church because he wondered what would have happened to the lives of people in the church.

He said;

If he was alone, I don’t care but for the lives that are in the church, I begin to wonder. I shed tears

Reacting, Reverend Hayab Joseph said he knew the father of the suspect for many years, noting that it’s just that he didn’t know that Nathaniel was the son of Mr. Ezekiel until he visited the house.

He maintain that, CAN is not concerned about Nathaniel’s name or religion but the act of criminality that he would have committed which should be addressed.

The CAN chairman expressed disappointment over the failure of the Police to do a thorough check on the suspect’s background, saying that would have saved Nigerians a lot of stress on the identity of the suspect
