Court Approves The Freezing Of 20 Accounts Belonging To EndSARS Protesters

EndSARS Protest
A Federal High Court in Abuja has given the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) the go-head to freeze accounts of some 19 individuals and a firm linked with the EndSARS protests.

According to The Nation, the order was granted on November 5, 2020, by Justice Ahmed Mohammed in a ruling on an application by the CBN filed on October 20th, 2020.

It was learned that those affected by the order include: Bolatito Racheal Oduala, Chima David Ibebunjoh, Mary Doose Kpengwa, Saadat Temitope Bibi, Bassey Victor Israel, Wisdom Busaosowo Obi, Nicholas Ikhalea Osazele, Ebere Idibie, Akintomide Lanre Yusuf, Uhuo Ezenwanyi Promise and Mosopefoluwa Odeseye.

Others are Adegoke Pamilerin Yusif, Umoh Grace Ekanem, Babatunde Victor Segun, Mulu Louis Teghenan, Mary Oshifowora, Winifred Akpevweoghene Jacob, Victor Solomon, Idunu A. Williams, and Gatefield Nigeria Limited.

The court order directed the banks to freeze forthwith all transactions on the 20 accounts on the list annexed to the CBN’s application as Exhibit A and all other bank accounts of the defendants/respondents for a period of 6 months pending the outcome of investigation and inquiry currently being conducted by the Central Bank of Nigeria.

Gatefield Nigeria Limited had earlier sued a new generation bank for allegedly blocking an account used to promote media coverage of the #EndSARS protests.
