THE Senate said Monday that it is not aware of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN Freezing the bank accounts of some leaders of the #EndSARS protesters.

The senate said the Governor of CBN, Godwin Emefiele, never wrote to it before taking the action as they only read about it on the pages of newspapers just like other Nigerians.

Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, the senator representing Ekiti Central Federal Constituency, who is the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, made this revelation when the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, (SAN), appeared before the committee, to defend the ministry’s 2021 budget estimates.

Sen. Bamidele who spoke with journalists shortly after the presentation, said the Senate was awaiting further information on the issue of freezing the accounts of the EndSARS campaigners from apex bank as they were not aware of it and the circumstances that led to the freezing.

“We are not aware of the CBN freezing the accounts of #EndSARS campaigners. We read it in the news like everyone else. Our committee is interested in knowing what is going on in this regard. Our committee is neither in a position to either explain or defend the CBN’s action,” Bamidele said.

The Senator noted that the legislature would liaise with the executive to know what was going on and find a lasting solution to it.

“We will reach out to the executive. If it is true, we would find out what the stakeholders in charge are trying to achieve with this,” he added.
