Kenechukwu Okeke

Little is known on the internet about Kenechukwu Okeke the self-acclaimed rights activist who dragged Pastor Sam Adeyemi, Falz, Banky W, Aisha Yesufu and a host of others to court over the #EndSARS protest, but gathered this is not the first time he is suing people for different public matters.

Mr Okeke gained popularity on Tuesday when the news media reported he filed a suit against 50 persons he claimed fuelled the #EndSARS protest in October.

On his Twitter handle @HumanRightsNG, Okeke describes himself as a human rights activist, advocate, master of jurisprudence, messenger of God, “eze nri” and radical defender of human rights.

Okeke is the national coordinator of Good Governance Initiative a civil society NGO.

In May 2020, he said he would sue the Nigeria Police Force after news broke that a policeman’s stray bullet killed 16-year-old Tina Ezekwe in Lagos.

He also sued the governor of Anambra State Willie Obiano because of the way his government presented the state budget for 2019.

In that same year, he dragged the Anambra State Government to court for banning the use of tricycles in the state.

Okeke filed his latest criminal complaint before a magistrate court in Abuja.

He said his property were destroyed and the defendants who promoted the #EndSARS protests must be brought to justice.
