Court frees alleged Nyanya bomber, Oguche


A federal high court in Abuja has freed Aminu Oguche, the suspected mastermind of the Nyanya bomb attack in Abuja.

The court struck out a two-count terrorism charge against Ogwuche on Monday, after months of trial for the April 2014 attack which killed more than 70 people.

The court hinged its decision on lack of diligent prosecution by the state.

Ogwuche, a suspected Boko Haram member, was accused by the Nigerian government of being behind the Nyanya Motor Park blast which occurred during morning peak hours as residents were hurrying to work.

The government said Ogwuche fled to Sudan after coordinating the attack but was later repatriated to Nigeria to face charges.
