A legal practitioner, Kenechukwu Okeke, who filed a criminal suit over the actions of 50 persons, including celebrities during the October 2020 EndSARS protest, before an Abuja Magistrate Court, has been confirmed to be a fake lawyer and never called to the bar.

The Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, said, yesterday, that Okeke’s name is not on the list of directory of lawyers in Nigeria and, as such, is not a lawyer.

It was gathered that the NBA reported Okeke via an official letter to the Federal Capital Territory High Court, Kubwa.

When the matter came up for hearing, yesterday, there were appearances from the celebrities, others and applicant, Deji Adeyanju’s lead counsel, Samuel Ihensekhien and Kenechukwu Okeke, who appeared as the first defendant, and as a counsel for himself.

The NBA FCT, Abuja Chairman, Clement Chukwuemeka, also appeared in the case as amicus curea (a friend of the court).

At the proceeding, Ihensekhien applied that the court should take a clear date to hear all pending applications, following the avalanche of court process filed by all parties in the case.

The court acceded to the application of the applicant’s counsel.
