MEND Claims Henry Okah May Have Been Killed in Kaduna

February 18, 2008

A statement issued by Jomo Gbomo on February 19, 2008 reads:
Disturbing reports just reaching us suggests that Henry Okah succumbed to injuries from gun shot wounds at about 0400 hrs today, February 19, 2007 at a military hospital in Kaduna state of Nigeria after he was shot in what those interrogating him claim was an “accidental discharge” from the automatic weapon from one of the guards.
The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) is giving the Federal Government of Nigeria within the next 24Hours to confirm or deny this murder rumour. Failure to do this will bring bloodbath in that region and beyond. We will not take prisoners from the military or oil workers.
