Convicted leader of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta HENRY OKAH has appeared before a High Court in Pretoria, South Africa.

Looking a bit frail but in high spirits, OKAH represented himself in court and challenged his prosecution and conviction.

He told the court that he is challenging his prosecution and conviction under South Africa’s anti-terror laws instead of under International Humanitarian Law under the International Criminal court Act.

He waded through a lot of legal documentation he speaks in an attempt to secure his freedom.

The judge eventually adjourned and reserved judgment for December 20, 2019.

OKAH was convicted in 2013 and sentenced to twenty four years in jail for the 2010 bombings in Abuja and Warri which left about three people dead.
