Bank accounts belonging to promoters of EndSARS Protest have been flagged on the order of the federal government.

Recently Nigeria was rocked by youths protesting against police brutality, which assumed violent dimension after hoodlums hijacked it and under the guise went on a looting spree and set fire to public and private buildings.

The freezing of bank accounts of EndSARS promoters by the commercial banks on the order of the Central Bank, who in turn acted on the instruction of the federal government was relayed to Punchng.com by some of the affected persons.

  “I am in charge of End SARS medical team in Port Harcourt and we had people donating for medical supplies, food, water, ambulance services and these donations were made directly into my account and of course these donations had End SARS descriptions so I think that was how they were able to flag my account. I noticed that on October 15, I was trying to make a debit transaction on my account and noticed that there was a restriction.

“So, I called the bank and I was told that there was indeed a restriction but I should go to any branch near me and when I did so, the branch manager sent a mail to the branch where I opened the account. The response to the mail was that there was a directive from the CBN to restrict the account,” one Bassey Israel, who was in charge of the #EndSARS medical team in Port Harcourt told the paper.
