FG Trying to Silence Me by Freezing My Account – Racheal Oduala

#EndSARS activist, Racheal Oduala, has said that the Federal government is trying to silence her by freezing her bank account.

Vanguard had reported how the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, had through the order of court obtained by the Department of the State Services, DSS, froze the account of 19 individuals and a public affairs company linked to the #EndSARS protests.

However, disclosing this in an article obtained by The Cable, Oduala opined: “I am not afraid—I am only disappointed that this country will treat me this way. Nigeria is all I have, and I have a right to demand that it works for all of us, not just those with influence, wealth, or a government position.

“In a country that people have been voiceless for a long time, people holding the government accountable is being seen as too much? How can we ensure that this sort of thing will encourage people to build a new Nigeria?

“A Nigeria that will be filled with accountable government officials, where all forms of oppressions and injustice is a thing of the past.

“How do you expect me as a part of the future of this country to still believe in a country that thinks they have the right through CBN to freeze my account for no just cause?”
