Henry Okah due back in court

2010-10-22 11:28
Johannesburg - The bail application of Nigerian terror accused Henry Okah was expected to resume on Friday in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court.

A former marine engineer, Okah faces charges of engaging in terrorist activities, conspiracy to do so, and delivering, placing and detonating an explosive device.

State prosecutor Shaun Abrahams on Thursday presented new evidence - an affidavit claiming Okah had instructed his co-conspirators to buy the two cars that were to be used in the October 1 twin car bombs that killed 12 people and injured 36 others.

The State also alleged Okah's cellphone records revealed he had been in contact with Chima Orlu, one of the men currently wanted by Nigerian authorities for the attacks.

Okah's lawyer Rudi Krause asked the State to supply him with copies of cellphone records used as evidence to link the 45-year-old father of four to the Independence Day car bombings.
