Alleged mastermind of the April 14 Nyanya bomb blast, Aminu Sadiq Ogwuche is demanding N100m as compensation for his unlawful arrest and detention without trial by the Nigerian government.
He claimed he is being illegally detained by the Department of State Security since the court had struck out the charge on which he was arrested and being detained.
The suspect, in an order brought through his counsel, Ahmed Raji, a senior advocate of Nigeria, is seeking the enforcement of his fundamental human right.
Joined as defendants are the DSS and the Attorney General of the Federation.
Ogwuche is being held for allegedly masterminding the bomb blast that killed 75 people at a bus station in Nyanya, a suburb of the Federal Capital Territory and thereafter escaping to Sudan.
The Inspector General of Police on behalf of the federal government had initially filed charges before a Federal High Court in Abuja, which aided Ogwuche’s extradition from Sudan to Nigeria.
