He was born in 1968, and was seen as carrying the legacy of his father who was hanged in 1995 after being convicted by a military tribunal over the murder of four local leaders the year before.
His father had led mass protests against oil pollution in Nigeria's Ogoniland region and his execution sparked global outrage.
