S.A. Court rules Nigerian guilty over car bombings.
Henry Okah was charged as being responsible for the October 2010 Independence Day bombings in the capital city of Nigeria.
A total of 12 dead and 17 injured were recorded.
The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) claimed responsibility for the bombings. MEND is one of the largest militant groups in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria that fights for a greater share of the country's oil wealth.
Okah had however denied all accusations including those that he was the leader of MEND, he did mention though he sympathized with the groups motives.
Okah was arrested in Johannesburg, South Africa a day after the Independence Day bombings.
