In a shocking new video claimed to have being seen by
AFP Sunday, Abubakar Shekau, the leader of Nigeria’s
Boko Haram Islamists has claimed responsibility for a
June 25 bombing in the capital Abuja and an attack the
same day at a fuel depot in Lagos.
The authorities tried to cover up the Lagos attack,
describing it as an industrial accident, but an AFP
investigation revealed it was a deliberate explosion.
“I ordered (the bomber) who went and detonated it,”
Abubakar Shekau says of the Lagos bomb, while
claiming responsibility for the “bomb in filthy Abuja”
that killed at least 22 people.
