A High Court in the Federal Capital Territory, has ordered that the prosecution of Pastor Sam Adeyemi, and some entertainers over their role during the #endsars protest last year be stopped.

A suit by one Kenechukwu Okeke filed in November 2020 brought Pastor Sam Adeyemi of Daystar Christian Centre, Burna Boy, Davido, Falz, activist Deji Adeyanju, before Magistrate Omolola Akindele.

Others defendants are Peter and Paul Okoye, Tuface Idibia, Banky W, Tiwa Savage, Don Jazzy, Ayo Wizkid, and Yemi Alade.

Also on the charge sheet as defendants are Aisha Yesufu, Kanu Nwankwo, Joe Abah; journalist Kiki Mordi, as well as actors Yul Edochie and Uche Jombo.

The plaintiff claimed that his property were destroyed during the protest hence he demanded the trial of those who promoted the mass action. 

In the ruling on the application brought by Deji Adeyanju, the court also restrained the Nigeria Police Force from arresting or taking any action against the individuals after the court had ordered police investigation.
