A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has freed Aminu Oguche, the suspected mastermind of the Nyanya bomb attack in Abuja, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.

The court struck out a two-count terrorism charge against Mr. Ogwuche on today after months of trial for the April 2014 attack which killed more than 70 people in Nyanya, Abuja.

“This criminal charge is hereby struck out for want of diligent prosecution by the complainant, Inspector General of Police and his prosecutor,” the judge ruled.
