The alleged mastermind of the Abuja Motor Park bombing, Mr. Aminu Ogwuche has been extradited to Nigeria by the Interpol.

The extradition followed the conclusion of legal and diplomatic processes between Nigeria and the Republic of Sudan, where the suspect was apprehended in his attempt to escape justice in the bombing case in which scores of people died and hundreds wounded.

The British born Ogwuche was extradited Tuesday, 15th July to the country from Sudan where he had taken refuge.

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 at 3.00pm.

It would be recalled that 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.

A statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP, Frank Mba, said the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar, while commending the personnel of the Nigeria Police Interpol Unit for a job well done, noted that the successful repatriation of the terror fugitive to Nigeria shows that the global coalition against terrorism championed by Nigeria is beginning to yield the desired result.
