The South African Government has received a letter from President Muhammadu Buhari commending it for upholding the terrorism charges against Henry Okah.
The South African Supreme Court had on Monday confirmed the 20-year jail term on Henry Okah and another 12-year term for the 2010 Abuja bombing.
According sources, Buhari wrote that the judgement was part of steps to cleanse the continent of terrorism.
“South Africa has projected itself an enduring partner to Nigeria in the war against terrorism.
“When African countries act jointly against terrorism, they send out clear and unambiguous signals that there is no more a place for terrorism on our continent,” part of the letter read.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, confirmed the development.
