Daystar Christian center’s senior pastor, Sam Adeyemi has reacted to the lawsuit filed against him and 49 other celebrities over their involvement in the #EndSARS movement.
A Nigerian activist, Kenechukwu Okeke, has filed a lawsuit before a Chief Magistrate’s court in Abuja against 50 #EndSARS supporters, for their various roles in the protest.
According to him, between October 28 and October 30, 2020 the defendants used their twitter accounts to conspire amongst themselves to “commit misdemeanor, to wit promoting or acting in such a manner with intent to assist in the promotion of an unlawful assembly under the guise or composition of #EndSARS”.
Okeke claimed that the offence was punishable under Section 97 (2) of the Penal Code Act, C53 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.
In reaction to the lawsuit, the senior pastor took to his Twitter and wrote,
