The Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice JOHN TSOHO, has defended the court’s freezing of accounts of alleged promoters of the #EndSARS protests that rocked the country in October.
He said that contrary to the belief in some quarters that the court intentionally froze the accounts of #EndSARS promoters, it only played its part as an interpreter of the law.
According to Justice TSOHO, the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN approached the court, praying for an order to freeze certain accounts of corporate bodies, and names of individuals were not attached to the applications.
The judge, who spoke during the opening of the 2020/2021 legal year, noted that three months before the #EndSARS protest, CBN had approached the court, seeking an order to freeze certain accounts of corporate bodies.
