Just so we are clear, Mr Godwin Emefiele finds it hard to freeze the accounts of politicians who have stolen billions but in a few weeks can freeze the accounts of youth who protest and have spoken out against injustice. 🙂 #EndSARS ASUU #CitationTheMovie pic.twitter.com/LZo7PBOePr

Mr Godwin Emefiele freeze accounts of People who received #EndSARS donations during the protest but finds it hard to freeze the accounts of politicians who have stolen billions or sponsors of Boko Haram. And they claim they are fighting corruption #EndBadGoveranceInNigeria pic.twitter.com/4YVQyPIQcK

Godwin Emefiele didn't freeze account of corrupt politicians, Boko Haram sponsors.
CBN didn't freeze account of NDDC chairman & others.
CBN didn’t freeze account of the politician with 60 bank accounts.
They only use their authority against the powerless. League of oppressors.

Please don't forget that this is the same Godwin Emefiele of CBN who was hosting zoom meetings with #EndSARS comrades weeks ago.
Today he is getting court order to freeze people's account.
Don't trust this government, boycott the nonsense judicial investigative panel.
