#EndSARS promoter, Modupe Odele, has said she has been told by the Nigerian Immigration Service to come and pick up her passport.
Odele disclosed this on Twitter Friday afternoon. She tweeted that she was given from 4pm local time Friday to pick it up. She, however, disclosed that she informed the NIS authorities that she will not be available today and requested to come on Monday.
The NIS had on Sunday stopped Odele from boarding an Emirates flight to the Maldives through Dubai apparently for her role in the #EndSARS protests that rocked the country last month.
The Spokesman of the NIS, Mr. Sunday James, on Thursday night that Odele was under travel restriction on the orders of an agency of government he failed to mention.
“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” he said.
