Many have reacted to the freezing of #EndSARS promoter accounts, stating that the CBN and Federal Government order was worrisome and totally condemnable.
One of the protesters, Dayo Ariyo-Atoye said it was unexpected that the government under Buhari can do it. He also noted that Buhari did the same when he was a Military Head of State.
Ariyo-Atoye said, “What we have seen is worrisome and totally condemnable and unfortunate. It is not impossible that this government can take an illegal measure to curtail the #EndSARS campaign, especially now that the northern irredentists are calling for a crackdown on social media and free speech.
“So, it is not unexpected that this government can do it. As a military head of state, General Buhari did it. As a civilian, he is also showing the same traits of military dictatorship.”
Ariyo-Atoye reacting to the Federal Government action, he said the #EndSARS group would compile the names of the leaders’ family member and write to the foreign governments to repatriate them.
He said, “If the government has compiled names of protesters to stop them from leaving the country in violation of their rights, we may compile the names of their family members in foreign countries and seek visa ban for the leaders. We would write to the foreign governments to repatriate their family members living abroad”
