A Federal High Court in Abuja, on Friday 25, January, sentenced Mr. Edmund Ebiware to imprisonment. He was found guilty of having prior knowledge of the Independence Day bomb blast that killed 12 people and injured several others on October 1, 2010 near the Eagle Square, in Abuja. Ebiware was arrested on October 2nd in Abuja and arraigned alongside Henry Okah and his brother Charles Okah who later died in detention. On Monday, a South African Court had earlier found the leader of Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta, Mr. Henry Okah, guilty of spearheading the bomb blast. Ebiware became violent when he heard about his conviction as he started to struggle with prison guards in the court. He will be eligible for presidential parole after 32 years with evidence of good conduct and remorse.
