A federal high court in Abuja has dismissed applications submitted by the Nigerian police accusing alleged Nyanya-Bomb mastermind Sadiq Ogwuche as being responsible for the explosion in Nyanya, a suburb of the Federal capital city, earlier this year.
Justice Ademola Ademiyi dismissed the application for lack of diligent prosecution and follow up by the Nigerian police and ordered that the accused be allowed access to proper medication, three lawyers, his wife and his brother.
The Police and the department of State Security were engage in a tussle over which agency has jurisdiction to prosecute the alleged mastermind who was extradited from Sudan by the International Police, INTERPOL.
Though the case has been adjourned to December the 5th for hearing, however Counsel to the accused thinks Sadig Ogwuche is being treated unfairly by the department of state Security.
It is surprising to observers that the prosecution of a terror suspect who fled the country after the attack in Nyanya on April 14, and was extradited from Sudan after so much diplomatic compromise from Nigeria will be handled with a lackluster attitude by the agencies.
This questions the professional competence of the DSS whose primary responsibility include providing intelligence and under cover services but has recently enjoyed more of media interviews and television appearances.
