Kojo Bomani Sababu is a New Afrikan Prisoner of War.  He is currently serving time for actions with the Black Liberation Army and later an attempted escape from prison with Puerto Rican Independista Oscar Lopez Rivera.

Kojo was born on May 27th 1953 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.  In 1962 his father died coming home from work, and just two years later his mother was murdered.  Because she was a guiding presence in his life, Kojo was devastated by the loss of his mother.  Still, he continued to live out the lesson she taught him, that education is a tool with which to change society.

Kojo was captured on December 19th 1975 along with anarchist Ojore Lutalo during a bank expropriation.  He was also charged with the murder of a drug dealer in his neighborhood.  He was convicted of seditious conspiracy in 1981 and sentenced to 55 years in prison.

In 1988, he was convicted of conspiracy to escape using rockets, hand grenades and a helicopter along with Jaime Delgado (a veteran independence leader), Dora Garcia (a prominent community activist), and Oscar Lopez Rivera (Puerto Rican Independista) from the Federal prison at Leavenworth, where he was serving the 55-year sentence.  He is now scheduled to be released to state prison upon the expiration of his federal sentence to serve possibly an additional 15 years for this conviction.  Notably, Oscar was granted clemency by President Obama and was released in 2017.
