Aminu Sadiq Ogwuche, the suspected  co- mastermind of the 14 April bombing in Nyanya Abuja, has been repatriated to Nigeria.

The police had claimed that Aminu escaped to Sudan after the bomb blasts that killed scores of people early on 14 April at Nyanya Bus Terminus.

He was flown into the country in a special flight from Khartoum which touched down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport at 3.00pm today, the police spokesman, Frank Mba, an assistant commissioner said today.

Mba said his repatriation followed the  conclusion of ‘tortuous legal and diplomatic processes between Nigeria and the Republic of Sudan’.

He  was  thereafter handed over to the Interpol Unit of the Nigeria Police Force by the Sudanese Authorities 

 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.
