Henry Okah to appeal bail decision
Johannesburg - Nigerian terror accused, Henry Okah, will appeal against a decision to deny him bail in a Randburg court on Tuesday, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said.
"They will argue at the Randburg court today," NPA spokesperson Mthunzi Mhaga said.
Okah was denied bail in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court late last year.
He faces charges of terrorism, relating to the October 1 twin car bombing in Abuja, Nigeria which killed 12 people and injured 36.
Okah failed to convince the court that he was not the leader of the Movement for the emancipation of Niger Delta (Mend), which claimed responsibility for the Independence Day bombings.
His brother Charles and three others were also denied bail in a Nigerian court.
The four were also charged for allegedly kidnapping four Indian, three French and two Russian oil workers between August and October last year.
Okah is in custody in Johannesburg Prison.
