High Court in Abuja has unfrozen accounts linked with some promoters of the October 2020 #EndSARS protest that rocked the country to its roots.
By the ruling, it has set aside the order it made on November 4, 2020 freezing their accounts.
Justice Ahmed Mohammed on Wednesday ordered all affected banks to “immediately unfreeze the affected accounts.’
Justice Mohammed proceeded to strike out the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/1384/2020 filed by the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), and in respect of which the ex-parte order freezing the accounts for 180 days was made on November 4, 2020.
The court’s decision was informed by the withdrawal of all processes filed in relation to the suit by lawyers to the parties.
