Written by crest887fm on November 12, 2020
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed concern about the on-going clampdown and freezing of bank accounts of some Nigerians for allegedly participating in the #EndSARS protests. The party expressed the concern in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja on Wednesday. Ologbondiyan said that it was alarmed that bank accounts of some Nigerians who participated in “genuine and peaceful protests” against police brutality in various parts of the country were being frozen. Ologbondiyan said that it was distressing that government officials attempted to justify such action, which he described as gross violation of the Nigeria Constitution. He said that such action amounted to a deliberate effort to economically suffocate those Nigerians and their families for calling for good governance, respect for the rights of citizens and end to police brutality.
