The Archbishop of Jos, Anglican Communion, Most Reverend Dr. Benjamin Kwashi yesterday challenged security agencies in Jos, Plateau State to comb and fish out the remaining planted bombs by members of the radical Boko Haram sect in the city.
He said that a member of the sect that was arrested at the wake of last week twin bombs that rocked the city had confessed that they (Boko Haram) had planted 10 bombs at different locations in the city.
The Archbishop spoke in Minna while delivering sermon titled “The good Shepherd” at the dedication of the Cathedral Church of St. Peter and the presentation of four Archbishops of the church.
“There was a twin bomb blast few days ago in Jos in which many people were killed. Just yesterday when I was about to come to Minna, another bomb exploded in Jos again. We are aware that one of the Boko Haram arrested by the security has confessed that they planted 10 bombs in the city. We are also aware that one of the bombs has been seen and detonated by the police.
“But where are the remaining six? The Police must urgently search and recover the hidden bombs to save lives and property”, he pleaded.
The clery lamented the insurgency has wrecked havoc on the Church in the troubled areas, citing the killing of three Deacons of the church in Taraba State and the wanton destruction of properties in the affected areas of north east.
Hear him,“The Bishop in Taraba state sent me a report that we lost three of our deacons in the state while in Adamawa state, eight members were recently killed. No good shepherd will be happy about such lost of his herds”.
Kwashi then admonished the Church to remain steadfast in prayers while seeking for divine intervention for the country to overcome present security challenges
