#EndSARS PROTEST COURT HALTS PROSECUTION OF DAVIDO, BURNA BOY, PASTOR SAM ADEYEMI, AND OTHERS

A High Court in the Federal Capital Territory has reportedly halted the prosecution process of Pastor Sam Adeyemi of Daystar Christian Centre singers ; Burna Boy, Davido, political activist; Deji Adeyanju and others over the #EndSARS protest that held last year




The High Court ordered a Magistrate court to immediately stop proceedings and stay action against 50 persons who supported the #EndSARS protests, following a criminal complaint filed by lawyer Kenechukwu Okeke.


Okeke in his suit alleged that during the riot, properties were destroyed and the defendants who promoted the #EndSARS protests must be held responsible for it and also brought to justice.

Justice Bello Kawu who delivered a judgement on the application filed by Activist Deji Adeyanju (one of the defendants) for a judicial review of the substantive matter before the magistrate, said;

“An order of this honorable court, that on the grant of the above orders herein, same order as granted by the honorable court shall restrain the Nigeria Police Force, 2nd and 3rd defendants from taking any further steps, arresting and or taking any unconstitutional/illegal steps in the form of any guise as it concerns the subject matters whatsoever before this court herein as it concerns all parties in the proceedings.”
