OVERVIEW OF: Malami: Why We Are Yet To Unfreeze #EndSARS Campaigners’ Bank Accounts
Attorney-General of the federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has expressed that the federal government is still weighing its options concerning the unfreezing of bank accounts of #EndSARS protesters.
This is coming a day after a Federal High Court in Abuja ruled that frozen bank accounts of #EndSARS campaigners, be unfrozen.
“We need to take in a lot of factors with particular reference to the compliance with the court order and within the context of striking a balance, the options that are available are multiple,” Malami said on a ChannelsTV program on Thursday.
“One, the consideration of or a possibility of wholehearted compliance with the court order; that is, comprehensive, unconditional compliance with the order relating with the unfreezing of the #EndSARS accounts.
“But, that does not take away the right of the government to give a further consideration when the need arises.”
Malami also said the federal government may appeal the order.
“A consideration for example, of exercising the right of appeal against the order, of exercising a right of appeal against the order if the need arises coupled with the right of stay of execution of the order or perhaps, application of variation of order, among others,” he added.
