Christmas Day Bombing: Kabiru Sokoto Sentenced To Life Imprisonment

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, has sentenced the mastermind of the 2011 Christmas day bombing, which occurred in St. Theresa’s Catholic Church, Madalla, Niger State, Kabiru Umar also known as Kabiru Sokoto to life imprisonment.

Aside the allegation that he trained over 500 men on how to manufacture and detonate improvised explosive devices (IEDs), the Federal Government said that he had prior knowledge that the sect planned to bomb the church on Christmas day but failed to disclose it to any law enforcement officer as soon as reasonably practicable.

He was said to have between 2007 and 2012, at Mabira Sokoto, Sokoto State, facilitated the commission of terrorist acts, including planting bombs at Police Headquarters and some government organisations in the state.

Though he was previously arrested by the Police in Abuja on January 14, 2012, he was, however, declared missing two days later.
