LAGOS, Nigeria – One of those whose bank accounts were frozen for playing key roles at the End SARS protests has cried out to the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele for help.
Recall that a federal high court in Abuja granted the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) the rights to freeze the accounts of End SARS promoters.
The apex bank reportedly directed banks to place a “Post No Debit” restriction on the accounts till January 2021.
Some of the affected individuals are 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.
Basset Victor, who is among the affected individuals took to his Twitter page on Tuesday to call on the CBN Governor, Emefiele to come to his aid.
According to him, he has no food to eat and has been bankrupt since his accounts were frozen.
His tweet read: “GoodMorning Godwin Emefiele, your son has enough food to eat, I ate just once yesterday. Your son is sleeping in his room, I am begging my landlord not to throw my things out
“Your son has pocket money, I have a pocket drought. Supporting #EndSARS isn’t a crime, unfreeze my accounts.”
He further appealed to anyone to help him with money to clear debts and sustain himself for the next three months.
“At this stage, I would be lying if I said I do not need help. I’ll appreciate anything I can get from anybody. Nothing is too small.
“It will go a long way to help me clear out some debts incurred over the last three weeks and also sustain myself for the next three months. Please. God bless you,” Victor added.
