Dr. Chinonso Egemba, popularly known as Aproko Doctor, rubbished Okeke’s lawsuit.
Kenechukwu Okeke, you're a clown. You're a stooge and a disgrace to "Human Rights" that you so proudly proclaim as your username.
Kenechukwu, I feel nothing short of pity for you, pity because you're so blind to common sense. Blind to truth.
Once again, you're a clown. https://t.co/4bzji5ouYe
