Just In: Court Strikes Out Kenechukwu Okeke Motion Over Criminal Trial Of Falz, Davido, Adeyanju And Co

The FCT high court of justice sitting at Kubwa and presided over by Justice Bello Kawu on the 2nd of July 2021 dismissed and by implication struck out the motion-filled by Kenechukwu Okeke to set aside all injunctive orders restraining the Nigerian Police Force from arraigning and prosecuting  50 Nigerian celebrities that participated during the #Endsars protest.

The Nigerian Celebrities were sued over their involvement in the October 2020 #Endsars protest and their controversial tweets.

The court in an elaborate ruling held that the injunctive orders made by the court and the suit of celebrities filed by Deji Adeyanju in a representative capacity to be proper and legal in law, as the FCT high court Kubwa now presiding over the matter of 50 celebrities and Kenechukwu Okeke as defendant/respondent, that the said court is sitting as a supervisory court over the entire proceedings of the lower zone 6 magistrate court, where Kenechukwu Okeke filed the direct criminal complaint/charge against the celebrities.

Speaking on the said ruling, the lead counsel to Deji Adeyanju and the celebrities, Ihensekhien Samuel jnr, who was ecstatic on the court ruling, praised the significance of the court ruling as a victory for the ordinary people of Nigeria, and that the said ruling is to further buttress the point that protest is not a crime in Nigeria.

The case has been adjourned to 7th September 2021 for the final hearing of the substantive motion to quash the criminal trial and charge filed by Kenechukwu Okeke at Wuse zone 6 magistrate court, FCT.
