Immigration Explains Why EndSARS Supporter, Modupe Odele’s Passport Was Seized

Recall that Modupe “Moe” Odele, a legal practitioner,End SARS protest frontliner and member of the Feminist Coalition, had narrated how she was stopped from travelling out of the country for her birthday and her passport was seized.

The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has explained why her passport was seized while stating that it had nothing to do with the part she played in the campaign against police brutality.

Speaking on Thursday night, November 5, The Spokesman for the NIS, Mr. Sunday James, has now told Punch that Moe’s passport was seized as part of a routine border assignment that whenever a restriction has been placed on any individual, the immigration service is duty-bound to enforce it.

He said,
“When there is a directive from any agency of government not specific, we have to enforce either entry or restriction of entry by anybody who has been directed not to be allowed exit or entry and as a matter of fact, we cannot as a border management agency, allow anybody who has been restricted from leaving the country to go out and we cannot allow anybody who has been restricted from entry to enter.

“So, it is a routine assignment and it has nothing to do with End SARS. We are the lead agency for the security management of the border. It has to do with the restriction order which we are duty-bound to enforce.”
