Tragedien som utfolder seg i Nigeria setter sinnet i kok hos mange kristne. Søndag 26.februar var det nok en selvmordsaksjon mot en kirke, denne gangen i byen Jos.
To menn kjørte en jeep full av eksplosiver inn i kirken. En av mennene fant plutselig ut at han hadde mer lyst på livet enn 72 jomfruer, og kastet seg ut av bilen, og prøvde å komme seg unna. Eksplosjonen satte sitt preg på ham imidlertid, slik at han raskt ble tatt igjen av sjokkerte og rasende kirkegjengere.
De valgte å klubbe ham til døde.
An eyewitness and a worshipper in the Church, Joyce Dalyop, told NAN that there were arguments among the worshipers over what to do with the bomber before he was finally killed.
«Immediately they (bombers) entered the Church, one of them jumped out of the black jeep but luck ran out of him as the explosion affected him and so he could not run very fast before he was caught.’’
«Some people even pleaded that he should not be killed; they suggested that he should be handed over to Police for further investigation, but others argued that the police could not be trusted and opined that the suspect may be released,” she said.
Another worshipper in the Church, Elder Bulus Haruna, said that the other bomber, who drove the vehicle, was blown into pieces together with the vehicle that was reduced to only the engine.
«His (bomber) body parts were scattered everywhere – the legs and hands were charred and had become roasted by the fire from the explosion,” he said»
