Nyanya bombing: Co- mastermind extradited to Nigeria

Nyanya Bomb Blast-SceneBy Joy Baba

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 Saddiq Ogwuche was yesterday extradited to the country from Sudan, where he had taken refuge.

Aminu Ogwuche, who was handed over to the Interpol Unit of the Nigeria Police Force by the Sudanese authorities was flown into the country in a special flight from Khartoum, which landed at the presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport at 3.00pm yesterday.

The terror fugitive was reported to have been arrested in Sudan long ago, following an international red notice issued for his arrest by the Nigeria National Bureau of Interpol.

His repatriation, according to the Nigerian Police, has taken time, because of some necessary processes involved in transferring suspects from one country to another. He was reported to have fled to Sudan immediately after the Nyanya blast that killed about 75 people and was arrested a month later, in Sudan.

The Inspector-General of Police, (IGP) 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.
