A Federal High court sitting in Abuja has ordered the unfreezing of the accounts of #EndSARS promoters.
The Federal High Court, Abuja, has ordered the Central Bank of Nigeria to unfreeze 20 accounts related to activists of the #EndSARS movement.
In November 2020, the Central Bank of Nigeria told the Federal High Court in Abuja that the funds in the accounts of the 20 #EndSARS promoters, might have been linked to terrorist activities, a reason it froze the accounts.
However, according to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), in a judgment today by Justice Ahmed Mohammed, all parties agreed to resolve the matter.
“All processes filed in respect of the case are hereby deemed to have been withdrawn,” the Judge said in a response to counsel to the CBN, Michael Andoaka, SAN, and lawyer to the defendants, Femi Falana, SAN.
According to reports, the order came after all the parties in the CBN’s suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/1384/2020, notified the court that they had resolved to amicably settle the matter by withdrawing all the processes they earlier filed with respect to the suit.
