It seems that the lawsuit against some persons seen as promoters of EndSARS protests has been taken seriously to confirm the fears of many Nigerians weeks after the rallies.
An Abuja magistrate court has ordered the police command in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to investigate cases that allegedly involved Sam Adeyemi, Aisha Yesufu and other persons.
The order was given to the police commissioner in the FCT, Bala Ciroma, on Saturday, November 14, The Cable reports.
The court gave Ciroma not more than two weeks to conclude its investigation and submit reports before it can give its verdict.
The letter, written by the court's registrar, partyly read:
“I am directed by the presiding chief magistrate II, his worship, Hon. Omolola Tolulope Akindele, sitting at Chief Magistrate Court 2, Wuse Zone 6, FCT Abuja, to write to your office to investigate the above-mentioned case and report back within two weeks for proper adjudication of the case.”
Earlier, the lawsuit against Adeyemi and 49 others as alleged promoters of the #EndSARS protests had been kicked against.
In fact, the Conference of Igbo Youth Professionals Worldwide has distanced itself from Kenechukwu Okeke who filed the suit.
A statement by the president-general of the organisation, Maduabuchi Nwodo, made it clear that Okeke was 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 were anti-progressive and anti-people and show that he has no regard for the yearnings of Nigerians.
