BREAKING: Court frees alleged Nyanya bomber

Aminu Oguche and INTERPOL officials on his repatriation back to Nigeria in July 2014

A federal court in Abuja has freed Aminu Oguche, the suspected mastermind of the Nyanya bomb attack in Abuja, the News Agency of Nigeria has reported.

The court struck out a two-count terrorism charge against Mr. 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.

Mr. Ogwuche, a suspected Boko Haram member, was accused by the Nigerian government of being behind the attack.

The blast at the Nyanya Motor Park occurred during morning peak hours as residents were hurrying to work.

The government said Mr. Ogwuche fled to Sudan after coordinating the attack.

He was later repatriated to Nigeria to face charges.

Details of Monday’s ruling are sketchy and will be brought in our subsequent updates.

  • Preco01

    My mind is also sketch on the details of the fight against “self inflicted ” terrorism?

  • The Silent W1

    Wonders shall never cease under Jonathan Goodluck. Hmmmm soon our detractors will say the judge is an APC member.

    • Alcindo Satori

      I bet you it’s the same judge that ruled in sanusi’s favor. These APC judges are killing Nigeria.

      • Naija man

        Such comments can only emanate from a demented mind with warped thoughts
        and derailed disposition. The report clearly states that the judge
        threw out the case because of lack of diligent prosecution by the state.
        Are you not aware that the DSS and NPF had running battles as to who
        was supposed to prosecute Ogwuche but both of them failed to make any
        legal appearance whenever the suspect was brought to court.
        DSS or
        NPF are agencies of the State and that none of them prosecuted the case
        means the Government is not interested in the case.

  • King Carlos

    Nigeria is now a joke.

  •  мσνιc

    Under jonathan’s order!
    Oguche is a member of the ruling party.

    • Wähala

      If Dumbo had captured Osama, he would have freed him for the right price.
      The man cannot differentiate between right & wrong, he’s a mental health patient OBJ hoisted on us.
      No wonder Nigeria under him is a crime scene. No day passes without a major scandal… start counting from last Thursday. He’s like an imbecile child to a mother, Nigerians are accustomed to holding their breath for his next display of mental retardation…Tufia!

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        Your APC controlled Judges and courts are doing their best to ridicule the government’s anti-terror efforts !!

  • dan

    This is serious….

  • Wähala

    “… lack of diligent prosecution” ba? We’ve heard that before with Bankole, the tief who mortgaged the House for a N50bn loan he shared with David Mark, et al. Legislooters! Why won’t they free him, he has a slew of damning information to spill on this Govt’s involvement in the Boko Haram mayhem. Add the Judiciary to Dumbo’s wrecking ball damages to the Nigerian psyche. While ugly Mary Ogar and her dog-eating boss, Ita Ette Mbong, are busy ransacking offices of the opposition, terrorists and real criminals are walking home. Nigeria is an obscene joke under Dr. Dumbo… imagine the international reaction to this mess, it’s another damage control mode for Diaspora Nigerians. A mad man’s shame afterall, belongs to his brother. Again, Baba Iyabo has been vindicated, he said Dumbo is aiding criminals in avoiding justice with deference to the victims’ families… this is a classic example of what OBJ saw sitting down. Nigeria under Dr. Dumbo is… “A crime scene” – cr. @Dare

    • bikky

      Wahala,mention their names again,you see what I saw?

      • Wähala

        Whose names… the criminals or their suitors?

        • bikky

          Their names sound alike ,so you can’t expect difference.

  • Nothern Sellout Adviser

    How do you expect government to execute it’s own surrogate? They initially arrest him to doss the rising tension and now its time to settle the issue silently. What do you expect of the judge if the prosecutors are not ready to provide evidence to substantiate the case?

  • dumbo

    Pdp has freed one of their own.

  • Jay

    “… lack of diligent prosecution”…
    What will this government be able to do right for God sake?

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      Keep quiet !! blame the quota system and sharia judges wrecking havoc on the nation’s judiciary.

      • Naija man

        Such comments can only emanate from a demented mind with warped thoughts

        means the Government is not interested in the case. Tawando or Reno or Omokri or whatever you call yourself, stop displaying crass stupidity and such comprehensive folly.

      • amazing2012

        Do you we have qouta president ? Who is incharge ? Jonathan is sick !

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

          Nah !! The system does not allow the President to intervene on such matters,the independence of the Judiciary is a democratic norm !

          • amazing2012

            Do we have credible system in Nigeria ?

      • bikky

        Kai,you are not around.

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

          Where am I then ?

  • Baba Jada

    The time it took them to solve the nyaya case was too quick for it to be credible. From the sharp sharp work they claimed they did, this is bound to happen. If he was the mastermind then who did the second one that happened while he was in custody? They should please do a thorough job if they want to be taken seriously.

  • Wähala

    Wallahi, Dumbo has gone mad. Colo! Professor Ayittey was right aferall. Hear him…
    “Nigerians should not put up with mediocrity and should mount a recall (Dumbo) campaign. They should check Chapter VI of their Constitution. See § 143 and §144 about removal of the President and Vice President from office other than through elections… §137; 1c: “”A person shall not be qualified for election to the office of President if under the Law in any part of Nigeria, he is adjudged to be a lunatic or otherwise, declared to be of unsound mind”” – Ghanaian Prof. Ayittey (advising Nigerians)

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      Do you expect Jonathan to lecture your quota-system and sharia Judges on jurisprudence,look here ,this is a democratic dispensation,with separation of powers defined by the constitution. When the Fulani rulers were appointing Judges who could hardly spell their names for decades and with the judges retirement age over 60, Nigeria is in for a bleak future as long as the Judiciary is concerned !

      • Wähala

        Powers were not separated when he ordered ugly Marilyn Ogar and Suleiman Abba to invade the NASS, ba?
        The problem with sycophancy is you live a lie thus, you forget the last lies… whatever happened to the transvestite the DSS paraded as the would-be assassin of Gen. Buhari? I guess he too deserves to be released for “lack of diligent prosecution” after three months of Ogar sniffing snuff into her ogogoro-damaged brains. Dumbo is Gbomojomo, the terrorist who bombed Nigeria with MEND on Indy-Day celebrations. He knows the stakes are high if this Oguche chap ever opens his mouth in court. That also explains why Sen. Ndume’s terrorism trial is shrouded in secrecy. Chump, pick-n-pocket your crumbs, you are no match for me in intellectual mind jogging… I’m miles ahead of you, and will remain your mentor in forensic analysis of the mind of a psychopath you call your leader. Didinrin!

        • bikky

          Thump up, I follow your trends,who knows?

      • amazing2012

        You are mad, blame Joanthan who has no control on everything under his leadership ! He is just sick and curse on Nigeria !

        • MrFesh

          Like a kid. They give you ice cream your sceam. They give you chocolate got scream. SS does their work, Jonathan controls them, mycobacteria frees a suspect, Jonathan is not controlling everything under his leadership. Shaaaaaaaaame

    • Shola

      The only lunatic I see here are you.

      • Wähala

        If you can see evil in me, then you’re of derailed mindset. Dumbo is an imbecile and I insist, he is the terrorist and cold-blooded killer, Gbomojomo… his cup is full regardless what you crumb-catchers say. Baba Iyabo has again been proven right, Dumbo is a criminal helping criminals evade justice… but, he will see!

        • Shola

          I can see that you are a jobless lunatic. Keep running around threads, insulting people. That pea nut hey pay you will stop after elections

    • Wazobia

      Wahala. be calm. The Courts have always been made by men, for men. Their ways are not the ways of sanity nor justice. It’s about proving a matter right or wrong. Even if he was a suspect as they say. And if we take our emotions away from this,and look through the same hole as they do, the judgement may be fair.

      Men are capable of unthinkable things even when they call the name of God

      • Wähala

        Go tell the victims’ families to calm down, you hia? Calm down for evil abi? Dumbo’s permutations without consideration for the dead is simply put, pure mental illness. No other explanation justifies this. That judge deserves to be hanged by his balls upside down whether he called the name of God or Amadioha in rendering this vile opinion. Wallahi, how I wish I can wrap my hands around his neck right now… the Olosi.

    • the truth

      now i know you have really gone mad. You are indeed a lunatic. so jonathan now controls the judiciary, jonathan’s government consulted interpol, got this man arrested and now freeing him, if they really wanted to hide him why did they consult a world agency to cast a net for this young man. That is how you lied on this forum that asari dokubo was in jail cooling off after the flight to south africa, many gullible ones believed your stup*d ass. Keep perpetuating falsehood and soap opera, only f**ls will take you serious. At this rate when you finally go mad you will blame jonathan.

      • Wähala

        Read your first and last sentences and see the contradiction that your mind is made of. Let me not waste time bcos quite frankly, I’m not in the mood for your bullsh*t today… Oguche planned that Nyanya attack with the sons of that unnamed CBN middle manager who happens to be Dumbo’s PDP pal. Oguche’s dad is a retired Colonel and connected to the DSS that’s why this freed terrorist once worked for our security services. Short of it is, he knows too much and cannot be allowed to sing in open court… ksapisch? Mad or not, I’m on the money!

      • Warri Boy

        Don’t fret over insignificant scallywags. It is waste of precious energy and time. He is a cowardly Conger, and an irredeemable simpleton…a paid supporter of APC
        and its terrorist candidate – The Robert Mugabe of Nigeria otherwise
        know as the presidential candidate emeritus.

        You know say
        craze man wey naked no dey notice him own nakedness, instead him go feel
        say na other people wey wear cloth get problem. So for such parochial elements, silence would suffice.

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      One of the very few “successes” achieved by Mr. Jonothing was the quick extradition of Ogwuche to come and face “justice” in Nigeria.

      Like everything else he has done, grace has quickly turned to grass!

      Can you imagine, “lack of diligent prosecution” for a case involving terrorism.

      Makes me wonder if the arrest and repatriation from Sudan was not against a government plan that initially allowed a terrorist on bail to plan, execute more terror and leave the country!!

      • Realnigerian

        Something had to be done. especially to cover the GEJ’s Kano trip to dance AZONTO after the bombing!!

  • Nigeria going going gon………….

  • Buhari_is_Boko

    APC judges are really killing this country

    • Naija man

      Such comments can only emanate from a demented mind with warped thoughts and derailed disposition. The report clearly states that the judge threw out the case because of lack of diligent prosecution by the state. Are you not aware that the DSS and NPF had running battles as to who was supposed to prosecute Ogwuche but both of them failed to make any legal appearance whenever the suspect was brought to court.
      DSS or NPF are agencies of the State and that none of them prosecuted the case means the Government is not interested in the case.

      • Dan Fulani

        Don’t mind the MUMU, He doesn’t have brain to reason. Is like He never attended any school.

    • Goks

      Guy, must you politicize every situation in Nigeria. Can’t you just reason straight sometimes? What has the failure of the Government to prosecute the accused person got to do with the Judge. A judge does not just free an accused person for lack of diligent prosecution if absence of the prosecutor was not a recurrent one. So what do say about the refusal of the Government to follow the case through? Nawa for you o!

    • Maria

      APC appointed the judges in Abuja…cant you see that you are sick in the head?

      • Otile

        Are you not sick and tired of your derogatory remarks about peoples’ brain? The judge might as well be a closet APC minion. Tambuwal was appointed the Speaker based on his avowed allegiance to PDP, but little did they know he is a closet APC chieftain. You see, most APC members are human chameleons, they can change whenever they sense an opportunity.

        • Ha

          Otile please don’t be like our empty-headed C-in-C. You said Tambuwal was appointed speaker “based on his avowed allegiance to PDP, but little did they know he is a closet APC chieftain”. Please when was Tambuwal appointed and when was APC created? Blind followers become exactly as their leaders.

          • Otile

            I said appointed Speaker, just to avoid offending the APC fanatic minions. Actually he stole the speakership from Hon Mulikat when he gave the impression that he was a member of PDP. Is that too difficult for you to understand with your empty head?

      • Buhari_is_Boko

        have you taken your drugs today? NJC appoints judges and not political parties. Injustice Salami the bribe taking abracadabra injustice controlled as a puppet by Thiefnubu who appointed him?

        • Maria

          Who appoints the Chief Justice of Nigeria? APC? I think Ogwuche is a PDP chieftain, maybe from Benue state… like his boss…Ali Modu Sherrif who now enjoys some of the best FGN security details anyone can get…Weldone…There is a precedence… Fani Kayode has been let off the hook for stealing billions because of his allegiance to support Jonathan and to use his watery mouth to water down opposition…

    • Mr. Abdin

      God save Nigeria.

    • Scalywag

      Mr. Wendell Slimline. Your footprint is easy to decipher. You and your principal are getting more desperate by the day

  • Myson

    SSS never solved the Nyanya bombing. The guy may be fanatatics but he was innocent of Nyanya bombing. They just threw the name of this Guy as the Mastermind of the Nyanya Bombing in other for Nigeria masses to believe they are serious in their duty. The same thing happened to the assassination of one Imam Jafar in Zaria. They just arrested some people and accused them of members of Boko Haram and suspects. The same way the people they have paraded before and in their detention were also paraded as the killers of Oshimhole PA.

    • Gbaa-m Okpana-eze

      You do not have the facts of the matter. I do not know if your name is Myson or MYSON: My Senility On-Net. SSS is yet to prosecute Ogwuche. The agency is still investigating and had applied for more time to conclude. Because the matter was multi-agency, one can not stop the other from prosecuting if the prosecutor thinks there’s sufficient grounds and evidence for prosecution. Hence, while the SSS tarried, the Police proceeded. And mind you, both agencies still have a chance to nail the suspect. The case was also struck out for lack of diligent prosecution. Matter can be re-presented and required conviction secured. You may wish to read other reports on the matter, Sahara Reporters may be a good place to start. So Mr. Senility, learn so that azhi ga-agba ihe ojio!

    If not that lives were lost, this would have kept me laughing for a long time. Nigeria is now a total joke in the international community. I find it extremely sad that the country was more respected when the dictators were in power; it has totally lost all respect now.

  • DKING

    See incompetence of all these security agencies at the highest level. They have become PDP security agents hence they cant do their jobs again. It is what the Oga says and wants, no professionalism, nothing. Its such a pity what these incompetent lot starting with their clueless oga at the top has turned every facet of this country into. They cant investigate, nor prosecute correctly.. so sad. Guys urgent change is needed o before it is too late!

  • Realnigerian

    This is a deal between Derby, Modu Sherrif and GEJ. The guy would have spilt their beans to the public. the entire process should have been televised openly. Meanwhile, our DSS can detect FAKE PVR cards registration process from the moon

  • Scalywag

    Due diligence in Nigeria for now is only about 2015. It’s not about fighting terrorism or terrorists. Those who stand in the way of GEJ,the moving train from Otuoke will be crushed. Diligence is to be applied only in dealing with APC, in crushing Tambuwal and in the pursuit of outcomes that are favourable to GEJ and his ambition only. In this pursuit allies are to be found in SAS-GAS, Danladi, even Shekau. I weep for Nigeria. May the souls of the unidentified victims of Abu Sadiq who were recently given mass burial in abuja recently receive a merciful judgement from their creator, Amen

  • emmanuel

    So why is Charles Okah still in detention then.

    Jonathan can this game? The South South people are the most unfortunate lots in this Jonathans tenor.

    The East West Road has been our nemesis, yet other roads in different Go-political zones are getting commissioned.

    Ogwuche on his way home, Al-Mustapha has gone back to work, yet defering to the Fulanis will make Charles, Henry and Kelvin remain perpetually incacerated. Ehis is to be extradited for trial abroad over NSMPC, yet Sanusi’s passport has been returned to him

    Infact the South South people must give Jonathan ultimatum or no vote in 2015. Is it a curse to have ones own person as presisent?

    wetinnnnnnnnnnn?
