A High Court in the Federal Capital Territory has ordered a Magistrate, Omolola Akindele, to immediately halt proceedings and stay action in a criminal complaint filed by one Kenechukwu Okeke, against 50 persons who supported the #EndSARS protests.
Justice Bello Kawu also restrained the Nigeria Police Force from arresting or taking any action against the #EndSARS activists.
The magistrate had ordered the Commissioner of Police in the FCT to launch an investigation into the 50 notable persons who promoted the #EndSARS movement.
Some of the notable persons include the Senior Pastor, Daystar Christian Centre, Sam Adeyemi; Musician Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy, David Adeleke otherwise known as Davido, Folarin Falana popularly known as Falz; and activist Deji Adeyanju.
Adeyanju subsequently filed an application before the FCT High Court seeking a judicial review of the substantive matter before the magistrate.
Okeke had alleged that during the #EndSARS protests, his properties were destroyed and the defendants who promoted the #EndSARS protests must be brought to justice.
In his supporting affidavit, Okeke said the defendants played active roles in the #EndSARS protest which later became violent.
