In Anambra, a civil rights activist who sued Nigerian celebrities who backed End SARS and CNN was assassinated.

Kenechukwu Okeke, a controversial activist who sued several Nigerian celebrities for pushing the End SARS campaign, was assassinated in Anambra State.


Pastor Sam Adeyemi, Tuface Idibia, Kanu Nwankwo, Davido, Falz, Burna Boy, Yemi Alade, and other notable Nigerians were sued by Kenechukwu Okeke, an ardent supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, in November 2020 for lending their voices to the End SARS movement (read here).


He also sued CNN, alleging that their report slandered President Muhammadu Buhari and his administration.


Unfortunately, Okeke was macheted by seven guys in Nkpor, Anambra state, near Onitsha.

His wife, Mrs. Blessing Odinakachi Okeke, and their daughter were present when he was assassinated.


Okeke’s widow said that her husband was murdered by Chiadiobi, one of his tenants.

“Chiadiobi was residing in our house, but when he packed out without our knowledge and demanded to be reimbursed for two months’ rent, we told him he should have warned us that he was packing out,” she claimed.


“My husband was not present on the day he arrived, but I informed him that he had packed out of the house without our permission and should not be given any money back.”

“He threatened to take action against us, stating he’d teach my husband a lesson.” I called my husband and informed him what the youngster said and that he should not confront him since he is a horrible boy, according to them.

“After reporting the incident to the DSS and the police, he was forced to sign an undertaking, but he continued to threaten us.” He occasionally comes to our house, breaks through the gate, and enters to take whatever he wants.


“He came to our house one day, and my husband confronted him, unaware that he had many lads with him downstairs, and before my husband could react, they macheted him, and the fuel we meant to pour into our generator, they poured on him and lit him up, and that was how my husband died.”
