BREAKING: Sam Adeyemi, Davido, Burna Boy, Others, Dragged To Court Over #endsars by Doraty1(f): 2:38pm On Nov 10, 2020
Kenechukwu Okeke, an activist, has filed a criminal suit at the FCT High Court against 50 persons who participated or promoted the #EndSARS protest online.

POLITICS NIGERIA reported how the protest against police brutality and the misdemeanours of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) attracted attention from across the globe.

Several peaceful demonstrations were held in major cities in the country to show the displeasure of the youths.

While the federal government has promised to implement the demands of the protesters, weeks after, it launched a clampdown against promoters of the protest.

This paper had reported how international passports of some persons were withheld, some persons’ bank accounts frozen and scores arrested. These moves have been largely condemned by rights activists and members of the international community.

However, in court documents obtained by POLITICS NIGERIA, Aisha Yesufu, Deji Adeyanju, Ayo Sogunro and some other activists have been dragged to court by Mr Okeke.

Pastor Sam Adeyemi of Daystar Christian Centre, hip hop singers; Damini Ogulu known as Burna Boy, David Adeleke, popularly addressed as Davido, Folarin Falana, Yemi Alade amongst others were also joined in the suit as defendants.

Others include social media personalities and good governance advocates.

Mr Okeke claimed that between the October 28 and October 30, 2020 the defendants, via their twitter accounts, conspire amongst themselves to “commit misdemeanor, to wit promoting or acting in such a manner with intent to assist in the promotion of an unlawful assembly under the guise or composition of “#EndSARS”.

This according to him is an offence punishable under Section 97 (2) of the Penal Code Act, C53 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.

“That 1 to 50 accused persons with intent to carry out some common purpose, assemble in such a manner, or, being assembled under the composition of “#EndSARS”, as to cause persons in the Federal Capital Territory. Abuja to fear on reasonable grounds that such assembly needlessly and without any reasonable occasion may provoke other persons tumultuously to disturb the peace.

a. Properties (movable) belonging to the complainant was egregiously destroyed by some riotous and tumultuous person (s) instigated and incited by the 1 to 50 accused persons.

The averments as espoused in this complaint is not intended to be a complete recitation of all the applicable facts in issue or relevant facts relating to the conspiracies to assist in the promotion of an unlawful assembly (#EndSARS) riots, and shall not be deemed to constitute a waiver or relinquishment of any of the complainant’s constitutional right to fair hearing all of which are hereby expressly reserved including complainant’s right to tender all available computer-generated evidence by virtue of Section 84 of the Evidence Act,” the court documents read.

Having initiated criminal proceedings against the #EndSARS riots promoters at exactly 1052hrs WAT, 09/11/2020, we shall ensure that same is diligently prosecuted in the interest of defence, public safety and public order.

The Federal Republic of Nigeria is country of laws.
There is a motion (ex parte) praying the magistratus for an order directing that the charges and other subsequent court processes in relation to the criminal proceedings be effected on the accused persons by posting, publishing and sharing same as they become due via @Twitter.
Having regards to the case of Esso West Africa Inc. vs. T. Oyegbola (1969) NMLR 194 (198) wherein the Supreme Court of Nigeria opined, thus:

“The Law cannot be and is not ignorant of modern business methods and must not shut its eyes to the mysteries of the computer."

Wait, did he just call himself a human-right activist?

I guess he made a mistake, since he's teamed with the foolish animals in government to drag people fighting for their lives to court, he's no way different from them. They're all DEMENTED ANIMALS.
His case should be taken with a grain of salt!
