Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) on Monday returned the seized passport of one of the #EndSARS promoters, Modupe Odele.

She made this known in a tweet after picking the passport.


The tweet quoted Odele as saying, “Passport now picked up. issues. ’m told I travel at any time. Thank you so much everyone for the help and concern.”

It would be recalled the NIS said the passport of Odele was seized as part of a routine border assignment.

The Spokesman for the NIS, Mr. Sunday James, had said that whenever a restriction has been placed on any individual, the immigration service is duty-bound to enforce it.

James said immigration did seize Odele’ passport because of her #EndSARS activities but because it was enforcing a restriction order.
