According to reports, the Federal Government has allegedly begun an attempt to suppress promoters of #EndSARS protests by freezing their bank accounts.

As reported by The PUNCH, some #EndSARS promoters reported that their banks informed them that the Central Bank of Nigeria had directed that their accounts be frozen. Some even claim that their accounts had been frozen for the past two weeks.

Recall that youths, last month, protested for 2 weeks in major cities around the country, calling for the disbanding of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police Force.

It was gathered that CBN reportedly instructed banks to place a ‘Post No Debit’ restriction on the accounts.

The banks then implemented the directive by tracking the ‘narration’ of transactions.

Bank transactions that included the narration #EndSARS or End SARS were immediately flagged while such accounts receiving funds were frozen.
