A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has dismissed a Fundamental Human Rights Enforcement suit filed by an alleged mastermind of the April 14, 2014 bomb blast in Nyanya, a suburb of Abuja, Mr. Aminu Ogwuche.

Mr. Ogwueche asked the court to order his release from the custody of the Department of State Service (DSS) and award N600 million as damages in his favour for being kept in detention since his arrest in July 2014 without arraignment before any court.

The Presiding Judge, Justice Adeniyi Ademola in his judgment, held that the suit lacked merit as the applicant’s detention by the DSS since July 15, 2014 is in order to complete its investigations backed by court orders.

He also held that the orders made by the various courts allowing the accused detention for successive periods were in line with the court’s powers, under section 27 of the Terrorism Prevention Act 2013.

He ruled that he the suspect, who had been kept in detention since his extradition from Sudan, where he allegedly escaped to after the bombing incident, had been subsequently arraigned on terrorism charges before Justice Ahmed Mohammed also of the Federal High Court in Abuja. (Channels TV)
