Abuja - The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Abubakar, has commended the repatriation of alleged terror fugitive, Aminu Sadiq Ogwuche.
He is believed to be a co-mastermind of the Nyanya Motor Park bombing that killed scores of citizens outside Abuja recently.
According to Frank Mba, Force Public Relations Officer, the IGP said the repatriation of the alleged terror fugitive to Nigeria showed that the global coalition against terrorism, championed by Nigeria, was beginning to yield the desired results.
“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 extradited to the country from Sudan where he had taken refuge," stated Mba.
He said 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 touched down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in the afternoon.
The alleged terror fugitive was arrested in Sudan following an international red notice issued for his arrest by the Nigeria National Bureau of Interpol but he was not earlier repatriated to the country due to some necessary processes involved in transferring suspects from one country to another.
