Bomani Shakur

Bomani Shakur (Keith LaMar)

A317117

Ohio State Penitentiary

P.O. Box 1436

Youngstown OH 44501.

Ohio prosecutors allege that Keith Lamar was the leader of a group of prisoners dubbed the death squad and was responsible for ordering the deaths of five inmates during Ohio’s longest and bloodiest prison uprising, at Lucasville in 1993. Since the uprising he has taken the African name Bomani Shakur.

Bomani Shakur has proclaimed his innocence. He reports that police beat him, left him naked in freezing conditions for long periods and in cells without plumbing in order to make him confess to acts he didn’t commit and to get him to become a witness for the state. He encouraged other prisoners not to make false confessions or turn state’s evidence.

He is now on death row as a part of the Lucasville Uprising.
