The prosecution of the suspected mastermind of the Nyanya bombing, Aminu Ogwuche, and six others have been postponed to Friday, March 6, 2015 following the inability of the court interpreter to appear in court, owing to compassionate leave.

Justice Ahmed Mohammed who presided over the case said the proceeding s could not go on as five out of the seven suspects did not speak English, and it would be a breach of their fundamental human rights if the case if prosecuted without an interpreter.

Justice Mohammed further added that the trial would be accelerated when hearing resume as the case had been shifted once, owing to the absence of five of the defence counsels.

The seven suspects accused, charged with seven count charges of terrorism are Aminu Ogwuche, Ahmad Abubakar, Mohammed Ishaq, Ya’u Saidu, Anas Isah, Adamu Yusuf and Nasiru Abubakar.
