In January 2013, Edmund Ebiware was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment by Justice Gabriel Kolawole of the Federal High Court Abuja as an accessory to the October One bombing in 2010.
Seven years after his arrest and four years after the sentence, his family and some concerned Nigerians are pleading to the Presidency for clemency.
Edmund Ebiware was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for having foreknowledge of the 2010 Independence Day Bombing in Abuja which claimed twelve lives.
Four years after his arrest and seven years after he was thrown into Kuje Prison, his family, some concerned Nigerians and the “Free Edmund Ebiware Group” converged on Yenagoa for a peaceful March to draw the attention of the Presidency to the matter.
They argue that if Justice Gabriel Kolawole could thrown a treason charge against an alleged mastermind, then an alleged accessory should be acquitted.
