‘I Don’t See Anything Wrong With It’, Akeredolu Justifies Freezing Of EndSARS Protesters’ Accounts

1 min read

Ondo state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has defended the freezing of bank accounts belonging to #EndSARS promoters but however, believes the action is not a conclusion that the accounts were used to sponsor acts of treason.

“Speaking very honestly, I don’t see anything wrong in it,” the governor who doubles as the Chairman of the South-West Governors’ Forum said on Wednesday in the latest edition of Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.

“If for instance, my account was frozen, what would I do? All I would do is go back to court to explain. Even politicians, their accounts are sometimes frozen. You have to go to court and explain. And at the end of the day, the court will say, ‘Leave the account. The account should be de-frozen’ and you take your money back.”

Although some social commentators and members of the public have described the action of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) as an abuse of power, the former President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) said the protesters must explain the flow of funds into their accounts.
