End SARS: CBN Obtains Court Order to Freeze Accounts of Rinu, Pamilerin and 18 Other Protesters
Adegoke Pamilerin and Bolatito Oduala, popularly known as Savy Rinu have reacted to the court order granting the Central Bank of Nigeria’s request to freeze their accounts alongside 18 others linked to the EndSARS protests.
The request filed by the CBN on October 20 was granted by Justice Ahmed Mohammed of a Federal High Court in Abuja to freeze transactions on 20 accounts for a period of 180days pending the outcome of investigation and inquiry currently being conducted by the Central Bank of Nigeria.
The affected individuals include Bolatito Racheal Oduala, Chima David Ibebunjoh, Mary Doose Kpengwa, Saadat Temitope Bibi, Bassey Victor Israel, Wisdom Busaosowo Obi, Nicholas Ikhalea Osazele, Ebere Idibie, Akintomide Lanre Yusuf, Uhuo Ezenwanyi Promise and Mosopefoluwa Odeseye.
Others are; Adegoke Pamilerin Yusif. Umoh Grace Ekanem, Babatunde Victor Segun, Mulu Louis Teghenan, Mary Oshifowora, Winifred Akpevweoghene Jacob, Victor Solomon, Idunu A. Williams, and Gatefield Nigeria Limited.
Reacting to the development, Rinu took to her Twitter page, saying the court order would not discourage nor stop her from protesting if the need be.
Her tweet read:
“My name is even the first on the list, such a criminal that I am, that I protested without arms only putting on a white shirt stained red to say the Police should stop killing we youths.
“Freeze my account from today till tomorrow. I no get car. I go trek !#EndSars.”
On the other hand, Pamilerin said his account has been frozen for the past two weeks even with no court order.
On his Twitter page, he wrote:
“My account has been frozen for over 2 weeks. Apparently, CBN froze my account before they got a court order. Nigeria My Country, where the big and mighty do as they wish.”
