A federal high court sitting in Abuja on Wednesday ordered Nigeria’s apex bank to unfreeze the bank accounts of 20 #EndSARS protesters.

The judge, Ahmed Mohammed, gave the order after counsel to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the legal representative of the protesters agreed to end the case.

The CBN froze the bank accounts in the heat of the #EndSARS campaign. Many of those affected were prominent during the protests, which attracted global attention as thousands of people campaigned for an end to police brutality in major Nigerian cities.
