Rinu Oduala, one of the two youths representative on the Lagos Judicial Panel has accused the Nigerian government of not keeping to their promises for justice and reformation.
In a series of tweets she shared on her Twitter handle, where she confirmed that her bank accounts were truly frozen, Rinu noted that her existence threatens the government and they have been trying to silence her with every means.
“All I have is my VOICE I am part of a generation of Nigerians who have lived most of their adult lives under ‘democratic’ rule and yet, I woke up today feeling there is no difference between the Nigeria I grew up in, and the Nigeria my parents grew up in”, she began.

“When we began to protest, it was because young Nigerians decided to speak up. We spoke up – not because we wanted to overthrow the government, the only agenda was getting the @PoliceNG to stop killing us. We did not carry arms, or incite any insurrection. Amongst other demands, we called for a probe into the killings and torture of people and the government agreed to setting up judicial panels. I did this to make PEACE. I did to ensure our young people understood that the only way to create a better and safer Nigeria is to do things lawfully. Why am I still being targeted for lending the government my good will?“, Rinu’s thread reads in parts.
