  Henry Okah: a superempowered individual in warfare
Global Guerrillas

-- Henry Okah is likely someone you have never heard about. Despite that, he is one of the most important people alive today, a true innovator in warfare: a global guerrilla.


Henry is a burly man who speaks with a cultured British accent, a consequence of his upper class upbringing and his education in Nigeria's private school system. His mind is an interesting combination of the discipline of engineering, gained through his experience as an engineer in Nigeria's merchant marine, and the believability of an arms salesman that once used worries about personal safety to sell handguns to private citizens. In short, it is a combination of attributes that made him the perfect guerrilla entrepreneur. [..]

Nigeria is a mess, due to the combination of legions of legendarily corrupt politicians, buckets of oil money, and vast pools of neglected citizens. The Niger Delta, the wellspring of Nigeria's oil wealth, is particularly messy. It's where people, abandoned by their government, are living at a minimal subsistence level just outside the fences of the major oil company compounds, which sport European levels of convenience and lifestyle for their expatriate employees. As a result, it's little wonder that the Delta's political environment is a swirling maelstrom of actors -- from tribal chiefs to military commanders to gangs (
aka "cults" in the local parlance of the Delta) to local/national politicians -- all competing for a share of the Delta's abundant oil wealth. Here how Henry was able to leverage this environment: -- /snap/ [link]
