- A lot of reactions have trailed the lawsuit made against Sam Adeyemi of Daystar Christian Centre and other persons over the EndSARS protest
- One of the groups that have opposed the suit is the Conference of Igbo Youth Professionals Worldwide
- The group also disowned Kenechukwu Okeke who filed the lawsuit against Adeyemi and other prominent young Nigerians
The lawsuit against the senior pastor of Daystar Christian Centre, Sam Adeyemi, and 49 others as alleged promoters of the #EndSARS protests has been kicked against.
In fact, the Conference of Igbo Youth Professionals Worldwide has distanced itself from Kenechukwu Okeke who filed the suit, The Guardian reports
A statement by the president-general of the organisation, Maduabuchi Nwodo, made it clear that Okeke is not a member of the body neither did the suit represent the stance of the southeast geopolitical region.
Nwodo called on Nigerians to disregard the self-acclaimed activists, who according to him, is trying to portray the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari and the nation in a bad light.
Speaking further, the president of the group noted that Okeke's moves are anti-progressive and anti-people and show that he has no regard for the yearnings of Nigerians.
Part of Nwodo's statement read:
“Just as we are shocked at the action of Mr. Kenechukwu, we are in utmost disbelief that an Igbo man could be used by some enemies of Nigeria to institute this evil action in court.
“We wish to not only completely disown him but also strongly disassociate ourselves from him."
Earlier, Adeyemi reacted to the lawsuit against him by Okeke. The young recently dragged 50 celebrities who were involved in the EndSARS protest to court, claiming that they conspired to cause fear and also disturbed the peace of the nation.
