A Federal High Court in Abuja has struck out the two-count charge brought against Aminu Sadiq Ogwuche, the alleged mastermind of the Nyanya bombing.

Justice Adeniyi Ademola struck out the two-count charge for want of diligent prosecution by the Inspector-General of Police and his prosecutors.

The suspect, who was in court, however was not discharged as he is been detained by the Department of State Security Service.

However, the hearing of his case for the enforcement of his fundamental human right has been adjourned to December 5

Ogwuche is asking the court to compel the Attorney General of the Federation and the SSS to either charge him to court or set him free.

He contends that Section 35 of the 1999 Constitution is been violated by his continued detention since July 15 without trial.

However he was produced in court today in compliance with an earlier order of the court.

Mr Aminu Ogwuche was arrested in Sudan and brought to the country on the July 15, 2014 on charges of being the mastermind of the twin bombings in Nyanya, Abuja.

On his return the Department of State Service got a court order to remand him in their custody for further investigation .its been more than the 90 days requested by the department of state services and it has been unable to arraign the suspect. 
According to the prosecution, the DSS is still drafting charges against the suspect and will arraign him at the appropriate time.

This decision was opposed by the accused who has filed a case alleging the violation of his fundamental rights.
