<h1>A Magistrate’s Court in Abuja has ordered the Commissioner of Police in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Bala Ciroma to investigate 50 persons who allegedly promoted the #EndSARS protests.</h1>

<p class="">The magistrate,<strong> Omolola Akindele</strong> gave the order in a letter to Ciroma days after a human rights activist, <strong>Kenechukwu Okeke</strong> filed a criminal suit against some <a href="https://www.pulse.ng/news/local/endsars-protests-were-peaceful-until-government-crushed-them/96xnrbk" id="7e548908-e6ca-4fee-b999-fba270ebf852">#EndSARS </a>promoters.</p>

<p class="">Okeke had accused the defendants of acting in a manner <em>“with intent to assist in the promotion of an unlawful assembly under the guise or composition of #EndSARS”, </em>adding that the defendants used Twitter to instigate some ‘riotous persons’, who destroyed his property.</p>
