Bakare condemns freezing of #EndSARS promoters’ accounts

The Serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has faulted the freezing of the accounts of #EndSARS promoters. In a unique service on Sunday at the church, formerly called Latter Rain Assembly, Bakare said every policy against #EndSARS promoters and protesters is unsatisfactory for the peace and progress of the country. Pastor Tunde Bakare said the right to peaceful protest is one that every Nigerian, especially youths, should not be deprived of. “This season of our national life requires deep humility, sobriety, and deliberate thinking through, both by the government and the governed, to ensure that our plans, policies, and actions are weighed before they are implemented to avert the re-occurrence of our most recent crisis. “Some of the actions recently taken by the government on the heels of the #EndSARS protests may need to be reversed sooner rather than later in our collective best interest so that they do not trigger further protests. “Among such policy actions is the freezing of the accounts of young Nigerians who reportedly sponsored the protests. While I admit that under our extant laws, banks may freeze an account upon an ex parte order granted to a law enforcement agency by a court of competent jurisdiction for the purpose of an investigation, these provisions of our law should not be used to intimidate Nigerian youth simply because they engaged in and promoted protests against the inactions of government. “Targeting and arresting citizens on trumped-up charges, deploying court probes as a tool of intimidation, and generally eroding our fragile peace, are deeply worrisome signs of regression,” Bakare said. He added: “To extend the olive branch to the youth in one breath and to deprive the youth of the right to freedom of movement and property, as enshrined in our Constitution in another breath, will send confusing signals and cast doubts in their minds regarding the sincerity of the government. “The immediate reversal of these actions, therefore, will calm raw nerves and[…]

#EndSARS: Female protesters gave me courage to join campaign- Davido

Popular Nigerian singer, Davido, has revealed that the female #EndSARS protesters gave him the courage to join the campaign against police brutality. The Fem singer, while speaking on Apple Radio’s Africa Now with DJ Cuppy, said that when he got to the protest ground, the protesters were upset at him for joining them late. Davido said, “I got my courage from all the other youths that went out there before me. They had been protesting for days before I even went there. I would say those people gave me a lot of courage especially the females, the women that were there protesting. “When I first got there they were attacking me and people were even angry at me that why am I just coming? Where have I been? I could see the pain on the faces of Nigerians. Especially with the background that I am from, I felt it would be very insensitive for me not to lend my voice. The next day, I went to see the Inspector General of Police and it was not really productive if you ask me. What I mean by productive is the fact that they did not act on our demands.” The iconic singer commented on his photo that went viral where he was spotted sitting on the ground with other protesters with his hands raised in the air. He explained that it was his way of signalling that he came in peace. “In the picture of me that circulated around social media where I was sitting on the floor with my hands in the air, all I was trying to do was to inform them that I come in peace. I watch a lot of news and protests that are staged all over the world and that is what I see them do. That is why I asked everyone to sit on the floor. It was amazing to be part of that. He continued by saying, “Fem being the anthem for the[…]
