A High Court in the Federal Capital Territory has halted the indictment of Pastor Sam Adeyemi of Daystar Christian Center, Burna Boy, Davido, Falz, lobbyist Deji Adeyanju, and others over the #EndSARS fight.
The High Court requested a Magistrate court to quickly stop procedures and stay activity against 50 people who upheld the #EndSARS fights, following a criminal grievance documented by legal advisor Kenechukwu Okeke.
Okeke in his suit claimed that during the riot, properties were decimated and the respondents who advanced the #EndSARS fights should be considered liable for it and also brought to equity.
Equity Bello Kawu who conveyed a judgment on the application recorded by Activist Deji Adeyanju (one of the litigants) for a judicial audit of the considerable issue before the justice, said;
