Nyanya bombing: Aminu Ogwuche, co-mastermind extradited to Nigeria
The co-mastermind of the April 14 Nyanya Bus terminal bombing of the Boko Haram sect which claimed the lives of over 75 persons and caused extensive damages to property while scores were injured, Aminu Ogwuche, was on Tuesday extradited from Sudan to Nigeria.
The fugitive Boko Haram member, who fled to Sudan, immediately after the incident was brought to the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airpot, Abuja at about 3p.m. aboard a chartered flight.
At the airport to take custody of the fugitive Boko Haram member, was a team led by the Director of Defence Information, Major General Chris Olukolade, Coordinator of the National Information Center, Mike Omeri, Force Public Relations officer, ACP Frank Mba and Deputy Director, Department of State Services (DSS), Marilyn Ogar.
It will be recalled that Ogwuche, son of a retired Colonel of the Nigerian Army, who schooled in Sudan, was declared wanted by the Federal Government on May 15, shortly after the DSS paraded some suspects in the connection with the Nyanya bombing incident. Also declared wanted was Abubakar Tsiga, the alleged chief mastermind of the bombing.
