Garba Shehu, a senior presidential aide on media and publicity, on Sunday, November 8, made this known on Channels TV, with his comment backing the recent freezing of suspected EndSARS leaders’ accounts.

Shehu also berated desperate politicians for sponsoring the EndSARS protest and told them to publicly denounce the destruction.
