Madalla Christmas Day blast victims buried, parishioners boo Emir of Suleja

18 out of the over 40 people who lost their lives in the 2011 Christmas Day bombing of St. Theresa Catholic Church, Suleja, were buried yesterday, in a single grave dug beside the church.

During the church service for the burial, the Emir of Suleja, Mallam Awwal Ibrahim, who came for the service, was booed and chased out by parishioners of the church when he was called to say a few words. No one wanted to hear anything he had say. The emir and his entourage had no choice but to leave. Christians in the city are angry with the emir over what they say was his lack of concern or sympathy for the victims of the Christmas Day bombing.
