#EndSARS: Modupe Odele’s restriction from flying out a mere routine exercise – NIS
The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has said that the restriction of Modupe Odele, an #EndSARS advocate from travelling was a mere routine border assignment.
Odele, who is a lawyer, had narrated how NIS officials stopped her from flying out of the country because of her involvement in the campaign against police brutality.
Responding to her allegation, spokesperson for the NIS, Sunday James, claims that Odele’s passport was seized as part of a routine border assignment.
“As an enforcement agency in charge of border management, if there is an order restricting anybody from entry into the country, we enforce it without any prejudice.
“This doesn’t have anything to do with EndSARS protest or an individual, it is a routine assignment,” NAN quoted James to have said.
Recall that Modupe Odele was actively involved in the #EndSARS campaign, offering legal aid to persons who were arrested during the demonstration. Her passport was seized by NIS officials at airport while trying to board a plane out of the country.
