#EndSARS: Youth Member Absent At Lagos panel Sitting Over Frozen Account

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

Oduala, who is one of the arrowheads of the #EndSARS demonstration, did not show up for the Saturday sitting in protest against the freezing of her bank account by the Central Bank of Nigeria.

The CBN obtained a court order freezing the accounts of 20 #EndSARS promoters till January 2021.

One of those affected was Oduala.

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

The chairman of the judicial panel, retired Justice Doris Okuwobi, 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.
