The Nigeria Immigration Service says the passport of #EndSARS promoter, Modupe Odele aka Mochievous, was seized as part of a routine border assignment.
The Spokesman for the NIS, Mr. Sunday James, said on Thursday night that whenever a restriction has been placed on any individual, the immigration service is duty-bound to enforce it.
James said immigration did not seize Odele’s passport because of her #EndSARS activities but because it was enforcing a restriction order.
The NIS had on Sunday stopped Odele from boarding an Emirates flight to the Maldives through Dubai.
Odele, who is a lawyer, was one of the prominent faces in the #EndSARS movement and gave free legal assistance to several persons who were unjustly arrested by the police.
