The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has declared that Kenechukwu Okeke, the self acclaimed lawyer who filed a criminal complaint before an Abuja Magistrate Court over the actions of 50 persons, including celebrities during the October 2020 EndSARS struggles will be prosecuted.

It was discovered that when the lawsuit against the #EndSARS protesters came up in court on Monday March 8, NBA Abuja Capital Chairman, Chukwuemeka Clement appeared as amicus curea (a friend of the court), while Kenechukwu Okeke appeared as a counsel for himself.

During proceedings, it was later purported that the first defendant in the case, Okeke, who has been filing different court processes all over Nigeria was actually not a lawyer.

According to the NBA, Okeke who is not on the list of directory of lawyers in Nigeria was never called to bar and it was further learnt that the NBA would further take legal and prosecutorial steps against Okeke in the case.

NBA Abuja Chapter Chairman, Chukwuemeka told the court that Okeke will be prosecuted for impersonation in the case, and in view of all the above, the FCT High Court presided by Justice Bello Kawu then adjourned the case to March 30, 2021.
