The mastermind of second Nyanyan bomb blast, Sadiq Aminu Ogwuche is finally back in Nigeria from Sudan, where he was seeking refuge.
Reciving the suspect at Nnamdi Azikwe Airport Abuja, the coordinator National Information Centre, Mike Omeri said the release of Oguche by Sudan interpol is an indication that armed forces and other security agents are serious at fighting terrorism in Nigeria.
Accompanied by Sudan Interpol, Sadiq Oguche was extradited in Nigerian Airforce Jet with registration number 5NFGS, and led away in the convoy of operatives of DSS and interpol.
Meanwhile, Police spokesman Frank Mba said Ogwuche was handed over to the Interpol Unit by the Sudanese authorities.
His words: “Following the conclusion of tortuous legal and diplomatic processes between Nigeria and the Republic of Sudan, the co-mastermind of the Nyanya Motor Park bombing in which scores of citizens died and hundreds wounded, Aminu Sadiq Ogwuche, was Tuesday, 15th July, 2014 extradited to the country from Sudan where he had taken refuge.
“It will be recalled that the terror fugitive who had long since been arrested in Sudan following an international red notice issued for his arrest by the Nigeria National Bureau of Interpol, had not been repatriated to the country before now due to some necessary processes involved in transferring suspects from one country to another.
“Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, while commending the personnel of the Nigeria Police Interpol Unit for a job well done, noted that the successful repatriation of the terror fugitive to Nigeria shows that the global coalition against terrorism championed by Nigeria is beginning to yield the desired result.”
