This online news platform recalls that an activist identified as Kenechukwu Okeke had dragged the individuals to court accusing them of playing active roles in the agitation.
The petitioner who alleged that during the protest, his properties were destroyed, added that the defendants must be brought to justice for promoting the #EndSARS protests.
He said, “I shall instigate a private criminal prosecution against all the alleged perpetrators and coordinators of the #EndSARS riots on Twitter. The nation bled, lives lost, and properties worth billions destroyed as a result of the sheer recklessness of some persons.
“Having initiated criminal proceedings against the #EndSARS riots promoters at exactly 1052hrs WAT, 09/11/2020, we shall ensure that same is diligently prosecuted in the interest of defence, public safety and public order. The Federal Republic of Nigeria is a country of laws.”
