Written by anitaadims

Justice Ahmed Mohammed of a Federal High Court in Abuja has set aside the order he made on November 4th, 2020 freezing the accounts linked to some promoters of the #EndSARS protest that took place across the country in 2020.

Recall that on November 5, the CBN secured an order from Justice Ahmed Mohammed of the Federal High court in Abuja to freeze the accounts of 19 of the alleged #EndSARS promoters and a public affairs company. The court alleged that the accounts of the promoters were linked with terrorist activities. The court granted the request of the CBN and their accounts were frozen for 90 days.

The EndSARS promoters affected by the ban include Bolatito Oduala, Chima Ibebunjoh, Mary Kpengwa, Gatefield Nigeria Limited, Saadat Bibi, Bassey Israel, Wisdom Obi, Nicholas Osazele, Ebere Idibie, Akintomide Yusuf, Uhuo Promise, Mosopefoluwa Odeseye and Adegoke Emmanuel. Others include Umoh Ekanem, Babatunde Segun, Mulu Teghenan, Mary Oshifowora, Winifred Jacob, Victor Solomon, and Idunu Williams

n a law suit through their team of lawyers led by human rights activist, Femi Falana, SAN, the #EndSARS promoters told the court that they never granted fair hearing by the court before their accounts were frozen.

Justice Ahmed Mohammed, of a federal high court sitting in Abuja, gave the order to unfreeze the EndSARS protesters account after counsel to the CBN and the legal representative of the protesters agreed to end the case.
