1. Crypto/CBNLast week, the Central Bank of Nigeria, reminded banks, in a circular, the circular was effectively a stern warning to banks to dissociate themselves from activities related to cryptocurrency trading. Not long after the ban started affecting the relationship of banks to their customers on that front.
If Dangote shows interest in Crypto, CBN will unban it with immediate effect.— #EndSARS💧 (@BetaKoncept) February 12, 2021
Nigeria is building strong Individuals not strong Institutions.
Fintechs that dealt in cryptocurrency had to end their relationship with physical banks via virtual accounts. At some point during the week, users on Twitter started reporting their accounts restricted due to their activities related to cryptocurrency.

2. #OccupyLekkiTollGateLast Friday, the judicial commission had handed back control of the Toll Gate to the LCC. People did not take it lying down and soon enough the hashtag showed up and a protest was billed for the 13th of February. The reaction to it was another hashtag, #DefendLagos by those who claimed they were strongly opposed to the protest such that they would protest against the protest. The authorities have gone on to condemn in strong terms the planned protests.
Don’t say anything just retweet aggressively #OccupyLekkiTollGate— #ENDSARS (@hartvictor2) February 13, 2021

Segun Awosanya (Segalink), convener of the #EndSARS got a lot of flak for voting on the judicial panel that the toll gate be opened. The dragging was brutal and it would not be the first time the man would get called out for being a lackey to the government. He did defend himself but it did not matter to those who had it in for him.
I'm not Surprised at Sega who claims to be a Beacon of the disenfranchised Citizens of Nigeria has voted yes to the reopening of the Lekki Toll gate. I've always known Sega as an ass licker since day One. He's been a tool of the Smart Monkeys for long!#sega— Ed Adegoke (@Nativesondiary) February 6, 2021
Cult violence erupted in Obalende, a popular transit point in Lagos. The violence was later revealed to be a result of a dispute between rival NURTW/cult groups. The violence was noted for the fact that there were many security installations in the area yet such violence where guns were used was allowed to happen. https://twitter.com/davvydmoore/status/1359808244215123977?s=20

5. DJ Cuppy
DJ Cuppy seems to enjoy being on the trend table or maybe it is the other way round. She trended this week as she made good on her threat last week of suing. Her lawyers served Isreal Afeare a court notice in relation to the statement he made last week about the kerfuffle between Cuppy and Zlatan Ibile and the Davido associate was forced to apologize publicly to Cuppy in hope. Share and comment and look out for this piece next week. Have a blessed weekend. Featured Image Source: Arise News
