The MP also said that the government carried out three separate DNA tests to announced the death of "Sarah Jasmine," who was linked to the attacks, and was believed to have fled overseas.

"In order to confirm her death, DNA tests had to be carried out three times. That is how the government conducted the investigation into the Easter Sunday terror attacks to achieve its desired results. The government is steering this investigation with officials who are loyal to them, until the desired results are achieved," he told the house.

"This was woman was taken away by a police officer, IP Abubakar. There is evidence placed before the courts that Sarah Jasmine spoke to her mother after the attacks," he added.
