Court

The prosecution of Pastor Sam Adeyemi, Burna Boy, Davido, Falz, activist Deji Adeyanju, and others has been stopped by a High Court in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Recall that a certain Mr. Okeke had filed suit in November 2020 against Pastor Sam Adeyemi of Daystar Christian Centre, Burna Boy, Davido, Falz, activist Deji Adeyanju for encouraging the End SARS protest that led to the destruction of his properties.

Others listed as defendants were Peter and Paul Okoye, Tuface Idibia, Banky W, Tiwa Savage, Don Jazzy, Ayo Wizkid, Yemi Alade, Aisha Yesufu, Kanu Nwankwo, Joe Abah; journalist Kiki Mordi, Yul Edochie, and Uche Jombo.

Others are Feyikemi Abudu, Olorunrinu Oduala, Pamilerin Adegoke, Japhet Omojuwa, Ayo Sogunro, Deji Adeyanju and Tope Akinyode.

The prosecution was stopped after Deji Adeyanju filed an application before the FCT High Court seeking a judicial review of the substantive matter before the magistrate.

Ruling on the application by Adeyanju, Justice Kawu said, “An order of this honourable court granting leave to the application to issue and serve on the defendant an application for judicial review against the proceedings/direct criminal complaint of Hon. Omolola Tolulope Akindele sitting at Chief Magistrate Court II, Wuse Zone 6 in the suit of Kenechukwu Okeke Vs Deji Adeyanju and 49 others in suit No. CR/49/2020.”

Also, Justice Kawu restrained the Nigeria Police Force from arresting or taking any action against the individuals.
