Malam Abubakar Shekau, the leader of the Boko Haram terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the June 25 bombing that killed scores of people in Abuja as well as an attack that was carried out the same day at a fuel depot in Lagos.
Shekau made the claims in a new video on Sunday.
While speaking on the Lagos attack, Shekau said “I ordered (the bomber) who went and detonated it.”
There had been debates on whether the Lagos explosion was a bomb attack or not. Some witnesses had claimed the bomb was detonated by a female suicide bomber.
