Henry OkahNov. 25 (Codewit) — Nigeria dropped charges against two suspects linked to twin bomb blasts in the capital, Abuja, Oct. 1 that killed at least 12 people.

Lead prosecutor Cliff Osagie said in court today the state decided to withdraw charges against Ernest Wosu and Emmanuel Pathfinder after concluding investigations about their involvement in the bombings. He did not give further details and declined to speak with reporters after the hearing.

Four others, including Charles Okah, brother of former Niger River delta rebel leader Henry Okah, are still standing trial in connection with bombings that occurred close to the venue of celebrations marking Nigeria’s 50 years of independence from Britain.

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan said a day later his government will crack down on those responsible for the explosions.
