One of the #EndSARS promoters, whose account was frozen, said she was disappointed on how CBN and the country treated them.
The promoter, Oluwarinu Oduala, is also a member of the Lagos State Panel of Judicial Inquiry investigating police brutality and the alleged shooting of #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate.
Oluwarinu said the Central Bank of Nigeria’s action was unfair in a democratic country and it ought to be peace-making efforts of the government.
Oluwarinu’s account, a pharmacist, 18 others was said to be frozen till January 2021, according to the court order.
In a tweet on Monday, Oluwarinu said she is yet to believe that the Federal Government could carry out the clampdown, noting that the youths are the soul of Nigeria.
She said the government disclosed that the Nigeria Police Force reform is important but refused to keep its promises, adding that the FG targets the people who voiced out.
“How do you expect me as a part of the future of this country to still believe in a country who thinks they can through CBN freeze my account for no just cause? This is not fair.
“I am not afraid—I am only disappointed that this country will treat us this way. We are the soul of this nation and no nation exists without her people.”
“The funds in question here also includes some of my personal hard-earned money of over N200,000 naira. These funds were earmarked for disbursement towards the medical bills of injured protesters,” she explained.
“I did this to make peace. I did to ensure our young people understood that the only way to create a better and safer Nigeria is to do things lawfully. Why am I still being targeted for lending the government my goodwill?”
