HOUSTON, June 25, 2010 - ERHC Energy Inc. today released the following statement:

"It recently came to the attention of ERHC Energy Inc. that a financial consulting firm, without the prior consent or knowledge of ERHC, listed ERHC as its partner, described itself as being currently involved in our AIM listing and included one of ERHC's executives among that firm's leadership team on its website. The information was completely inaccurate and potentially harmful.  ERHC accordingly instructed its lawyers to require the firm to remove references to ERHC and its executive from the website.  Our lawyers have made contact as appropriate with the firm.
"We also want to clear up any potential confusion regarding Mr. David Bovell, ERHC's Vice President Corporate Development. Mr. Bovell remains a full time employee of ERHC Energy and is currently coordinating ERHC's pursuit of a listing on AIM. He is neither employed by nor a contractor for another organization. He continues to work for ERHC under the terms of his prior employment contract as Vice President Corporate Development."
