#EndSARS promoter Modupe Odele can’t leave Nigeria; NIS confirms

The Nigeria Immigration Service has finally broken the silence on why #EndSARS promoter, Modupe Odele’s passport was seized.

The Spokesman for the NIS, Mr. Sunday James who spoke on Thursday night noted that her passport was seized because a restriction order has been placed on her.

James confirmed the NIS was acting on a directive from an agency of the government to restrict Modupe from leaving the country.

He, however, stated that the restriction was not because of her #EndSARS activities but didn’t disclose “the agency of government” who gave the order.

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.
