The former minister: “I find it hard to believe ANYTHING that the federal government claims were the cause of the Abule Ado explosion.
“The SCOAN bombing in 2013 and the bombing of the Bellview plane in 2005, both of which were covered up, taught me that much.
“To avoid panic, the federal government always hides the truth in such matters. Sad!”
