After the Federal Government clampdown on the #EndSARS protesters by freezing the promoters account, Buba Galadima, an associate of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), and member of the Board of Trustees of the All Progressives Congress then urge the president to unfreeze the bearers account.
Galadima while featuring on Arise TV’s The Morning Show programme asked Buhari to order “his people” to defreeze the bank accounts as he described the action as unconstitutional
He said, “What the government has done is not right. It has no such right or powers to block bonafide Nigerians from travelling out of the country or from accessing their (bank) accounts. Blocked for what? What have they done?
“These young men were peacefully protesting the actions, omissions or commissions of government. Why do you, after you persuaded them or after agents of government allegedly attacked or killed them, follow this draconian disposition of blocking their accounts? That is not constitutional.
“I’m sending this message to Mr President whether he knows or he doesn’t know, let him be shown what I am saying. His people have no right to do what they are doing. Please, they should desist and unblock the accounts of these young people and allow them to carry on with their normal activities as Nigerians. You cannot harass them, we are in a democracy, we are not in a military regime.”
Last week, the Central Bank of Nigeria proceeded to a court to obtain an ex-parte order to freeze the accounts of 19 persons and a firm who promoted the #EndSARS protests and accusing them of having possible links to terrorist activities, in which the protesters have denied.
