The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has on Wednesday, refused to comment on the freezing of the Bank accounts of some peaceful EndSARS prompters, by the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, as well as the criminal case being brought against them,
Addressing State House Correspondents in Abuja, after the meeting of the Federal Executive Council, FEC, the Minister said that he could not speak on the issues, because of the various Panels of Inquiry set up by the various State Governments to look into complaints of SARS brutality against the Nigerian youths.
His words: “I am a bit constrained about addressing this issue, because I know that various States have set up Panels of Inquiry to look into the entire #EndSARS protests, with very defined terms of reference.
“So, any attempt from me now to second guess, or try to defend, or proffer answers to any questions, I think would be improper.
“I would rather wait for the various Panels that have been set up to do their jobs.”
