Aminu Sadiq Ogwuche, the alleged mastermind of the Nyanya bomb blast is said to have been radicalised while studying at university in South Wales, a report published in Daily Mail Friday revealed.
Ogwuche who dubbed himself ‘The Lion of God’ threatened to cut the hands and feet of non-believers while he was living in Britain.
The 29-year-old who was said to have escaped to Sudan was declared wanted by security authorities early in the week. But the terror kingpin was arrested by the Interpol in the Islamic country on suspicion of carrying out terror attacks in Nigeria which killed more than 90 people.
Boko Haram is also behind the abduction of 300 schoolgirls who are currently being held captive in a forest near the border with Cameroon.
But Ogwuche who dropped out of the university is said to have become radicalised while studying Business science at the University of Glamorgan from 2007 to 2010 while living in Pontyridd.
The University of Glamorgan is now the University of South Wales.
