A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the unfreezing of accounts belonging to some promoters of the End SARS protest.
Justice Ahmed Mohammed, who gave the ruling on Wednesday, ordered all affected banks to “immediately defreeze the affected accounts of End SARS promoters.”
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).
Recall that the ex-parte order to freeze the accounts for 180 days was made on November 4, 2020.
The court’s decision was reportedly informed by the withdrawal of all processes filed in relation to the suit by lawyers to all parties.
At the commencement of proceedings, former Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Michael Aondoakaa (SAN), who appeared for the CBN Governor and Femi Falana (SAN), for those affected by the freezing order resolved to withdraw all the processes filed.
This is to ensure the unhindered progress of the ongoing process of reconciliation, at the various panels of enquiry on police brutality across the nation.
