Odi Massacre: Judge Renders Verdict

A Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria, on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 under Justice Lambo Akambi rendered judgement in favor of the Odi Community against the federal government in the amount of N37.6 billion for the invasion of Odi, 12 years ago by the Olusegun Obasanjo administration under the command of Col. Agbabiaka.

In the class action law suit filed by Prof. Kobona Kene Ebi Imananagha, Ndu Gbagha, Shedrack Agadah, Idoni Ingezi and Nwaka Echomgbe, Justice Akambi directed that payment be made within the next three weeks, describing the invasion as genocidal, brutish and reckless.
