A Superior Court of the Territory of the Federal Capital ordered the cessation of the processes and the suspension of the action in a criminal complaint against the people who supported the #EndSARS protests.

Judge Bello Kawu, who issued the order, also prevented Nigerian police from arresting or taking action against #EndSARS activists.

The complaint filed by one Kenechukwu Okeke led a magistrate, Omolola Akindele, to order the FCT police commissioner to initiate an investigation into the aforementioned.

Okeke had alleged that the protest that was supported by those who joined the lawsuit led him to lose property and create fear among residents of Abuja in the Federal Capital Territory.

Some of those who joined the lawsuit include David Adeleke, better known as Davido, Damini Ogulu (Burna Boy), Folarin Falana (Falz), Senior Pastor, Daystar Christian Center, Sam Adeyemi, among others.

One of those who also joined the lawsuit, Deji Adeyanju in a lawsuit before the FCT High Court requested a judicial review of the merits before the magistrate.

Judge Kawu’s ruling reads: “An order from this honorable court granting the request permission to issue and notify the accused of a request for judicial review against the direct criminal process / complaint of His Excellency Omolola Tolulope Akindele sitting in the First Court Instance II, Wuse Zone 6 in Kenechukwu Okeke Vs Deji Adeyanju and 49 others in complaint No. CR / 49/2020.

“An order of this honorable court, which by virtue of the granting of the previous orders in this document, serves as a suspension of all proceedings on the direct criminal complaint Omolola Tolulope Akindele sitting in Magistrates Court II, Wuse Zone 6 in the Kenechukwu Okeke Vs Deji Adeyanju and 49 others in suit no. CR / 49/2020.

“An order from this honorable court, that by virtue of the granting of the foregoing orders hereby, the same order granted by the honorable court will prevent the Nigerian Police Force, second and third defendants from taking further action, arresting or take any unconstitutional illegal steps in the form of any disguise as regards the matters at issue before this court in this document, as it concerns all parties in the process “.
