A leading member of the # EndSARS protesters , Aisha Yesufu, described the freezing of the # EndSARS protesters ’ accounts as illegal , noting that the government “ is behaving like a terrorist .
She questioned the freezing of the accounts ahead of the court injunction ordering the banks to block the accounts.
Yesufu stated , “ The question is , why did they freeze the accounts before obtaining a court injunction ? Why the illegality ? Our judiciary should know that it is an independent arm of government and there is separation of power .
“ The government should be ashamed of itself. The United Arab Emirates just convicted some Nigerians , who were accused of terrorism , and we are hearing that the government would appeal on their behalf . That is where the problem is . ”
The activist accused the Federal Government of pampering insurgents , while bearing down on peaceful and harmless protesters .
She added , “ # EndSARS campaigners are protesters and they protested the way the Constitution allows , so all these are shenanigans. They had better focus on the terrorists .
“ Bandits are laying down their arms and they are taking them to Government Houses , while Boko Haram members are being given preferential treatment , but Nigerians, who were protesting , were being killed by the government . The government is the one behaving like a terrorist right now . ”
