Suspected mastermind of Nyanya bombing caught in Sudan

15 May 2014, 11:00

Abuja - The International Police (Interpol) has arrested one of the two suspected masterminds of Nyanya bombings, Aminu Sadiq Ogwuche, in Sudan.

Mike Omeri, the Coordinator, National Information Centre on the Rescue of the Abducted Chibok Girls, disclosed this at a joint news conference in Abuja on Wednesday.

The news conference was attended by the Department of State Service (DSS), the Nigeria Police and the Military.

"One of the two most wanted suspects of the Nyanya bombings placed on terrorists list has been arrested with the effort of the Interpol.’’

He said Ogwuche’s extradition back to Nigeria would commence soon for interrogation and prosecution.

Omeri also said the operation to rescue the abducted girls was being carried out by the Nigerian troops, while others were playing complimentary roles.

Marylin Ogar, spokesperson for DSS, said Nigerians should be happy that the international community had joined the operation to free the country of terrorists.

She said the mystery behind Boko Haram and the abduction of Chibok girls would soon be unravelled.

Spokesman for the police, Frank Mba, said parading the suspects would weaken the terrorists. This will also help to demystify them.

"It will also enable the security agencies to know their modus operandi.’’

The other suspected mastermind, Rufai Abubakar Tsiga, is yet to be apprehended.
