Nigerians have reacted to CBN freezing accounts of atleaset 20 active participants of the now suspended #EndSARS protest, taking a swipe at the financial institution for knowing how to freeze bank accounts of ”innocent protesters” but can’t freeze that of politicians embezzling money.
￼The reactions came shortly after the news of the frozen accounts got online.
A famous online comedian, Mr Macaroni joined in the slamming saying;
”CBN knows how to freeze bank accounts of Nigerian Youths asking for a better Nigeria but cannot freeze the bank accounts of corrupt politicians embezzling funds meant to develop the country.Yeye dey smell!.”
CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele, had allegedly filed a suit against 20 social media influencers requesting their bank accounts be withheld for a duration of 90 days until investigations are completed.
