CBN gets court order to freeze accounts of #EndSARS promoters

375

Federal high court sitting in Abuja has granted the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) request to freeze the accounts of 19 individuals and a public affairs company linked to the #EndSARS protests.

CBN had filed the request on October 20, 2020, and the court granted the request on November 5.

The bank accounts blocked included those run by Gatefield, a public interest think-tank, and Bassey Israel, a pharmacist. Gatefield has already filed a lawsuit challenging the freezing of its account.

The banks that were ordered to freeze bank accounts of the #EndSARS champions included Access Bank, Fidelity, First Bank, GTB, Zenith and UBA.
