Henry OkahRemember Henry Okah of MEND – the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta?

Perhaps not. Briefly, he’s a Nigerian who has lived in South Africa since 2007.

From there he organised attacks in the Niger delta.

These included two bombings in Warri on 15 March 2010 and in Abuja on 1 October 2010. These resulted in 9 deaths and many injuries.

But since he was a South African resident, he thought he was safe from prosecution. Not so – the Constitutional Court has now ruled.

And Mr Okah will spend the next 24 years in jail.

Here is the full ruling.
