The British born terrorist is an indigene of Orokam, Ogbadibo LGA, Benue State, Nigeria.
He was declared wanted by the Nigerian government on May 15 and arrested by INTERPOL in Sudan on an international warrant.
According to, ACP Mba Ogwuche had hired lawyers to resist his extradition to Nigeria, making the process a difficult one.
The extradition only became possible after "tortuous legal and diplomatic processes between Nigeria and the Republic of Sudan,” Mbah said in a statement.
Ogwuche, the son of a retired Nigerian Army colonel, deserted the Nigerian Army in 2006, after serving in the Intelligence Unit of the Nigerian Army at Child Avenue, Arakan Barracks, Lagos, between 2001 and 2006.
He was also once arrested in 2011.
