Marshal Sokari Harry (d. March 5, 2003) was a Nigerian politician. He was the former National Vice chairman of the All Nigeria People's Party who was later assassinated in Abuja in 2003 during the presidential elections. He was buried in Obuama, 40 kilometres South of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on July 5, 2003[1].

Previous to his murder, Harry was the chairman of the Rivers State People's Democratic Party. He left his position that year after he threatened to leave the party if the national executive of the party didn't carry out fresh party congresses in the state[2]. He was immediately welcomed into the ANPP soon thereafter.

Both his son, Inye Marshal Harry, and rebel leader Mujahid Dokubo-Asari of the Mujahid Dokubo-Asari accused several high-ranking government officials, including former President Olusegun Obasanjo and former Rivers State Governor Peter Odili, of conspiring for both Harry'sitician and former PDP chieftain Aminosoari Dikibo's murders during the 2003 election[3][4].
