This news medium understands that at least two of the explosions were carried out by suicide bombers. This information was made known by police sources and a hotel official.

To this end, the CAN President, Rev. Samson Ayokunle, charged the United Nations to devise ways of ending the menace of terrorism across the world.

“Our hearts are with the families that are affected and we pray for all those who are recuperating in the hospitals and medical facilities for quick recovery,” he said in a statement.

“Ultimately, we call on the Lord to console and comfort all the bereaved.”

He also said, “No fewer than 200 innocent women, including a teenage student, Leah Sharibu, have been kidnapped by the Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria.

“Sadly, government appears powerless in rescuing them and protecting the lives of Nigerians.

“This Sri Lanka attacks came while the whole world has not yet recovered from the shock of the disastrous fire which ravaged one of France’s most iconic sites, Notre-Dame Cathedral, though the incident was not linked to terror attack.”
