EndSARS: youths members boycott Lagos panel sitting over frozen accounts

The Lagos State Panel of Judicial Inquiry probing the shooting of #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki tollgate on October 20 was adjoined on Saturday due to the absence of a youth member of the panel, Oluwarinu Oduala.

Oluwarinu, did not show up for the Saturday sitting in protest against the freezing of her bank account by the Central Bank of Nigeria.

Recall that the CBN obtained a court order to freeze the accounts of 20 #EndSARS promoters till January 2021 including Oluwarinu’s bank accounts.

The order was pursuant to a motion ex parte filed by the CBN before a Federal High Court.

Justice Doris Okuwobi, the chairman of the judicial panel, retired said the panel would have to suspend Saturday sitting as it could not form a quorum in the absence of the youth member of the panel.
