Mosopefoluwa Odeseye, a caterer, has said she has been denied a passport by Nigerian authorities.
Odeseye, who provided food to protesters and helped in sourcing funds for a wounded protester, said she was informed that she had been blacklisted while trying to renew her passport at the Lagos Immigration office.
She tweeted, “First, it was the Central Bank locking up all my bank accounts, now it is Nigerian immigration not issuing my passport at Alausa! To what end, Nigeria? To what end? I applied for a re-issue at Alausa, captured some days ago and asked to come to pick today then I’m told that I have been blacklisted?”
However, a top immigration officer, who confirmed the development, said they were acting based on orders from above.
Recall that, in October, the CBN asked banks to freeze accounts of some persons involved in controlling #EndSARS funds.
