A Nigerian lawyer and major participants during the #EndSARS movement, Modupe Odele, on Thursday said she has been forced to go on exile due to immigration problems.
In a tweet posted by her on Twitter, Moe revealed she would have missed her flight again because of immigration issues.
“You force me to go on exile from my own country for no crime. I can’t visit and go as I please anymore,” Odele said in a tweet.
“I would have missed my flight if I didn’t make those calls. Because the person to do the secondary clearance wasn’t “on sit”, she added.
This is the second time she would be having issues travelling out of the country after the EndSars protests, as she accused the government of frustrating her due to her participation in the EndSARS.
Moe’s passport was seized and was only returned eight days after the first time she wanted to travel to Maldives after the EndSARS.
However, the reason for the prevention is yet unknown, as many believe that it could be connected to her role in the #EndSARS protests.
The Ministry of Interior has debunked claims that Moe’s passport was seized. In a statement released, it reads:
“The Ministry of Interior did not, has not, and will not generate any no-fly list,” Nigeria’s interior ministry said.
“I’m told I’ll always be stopped like that upon entry to or exit from Nigeria. What is my crime again? Providing legal aid?”
She further revealed that the immigration officer that scanned her passport at the airport told her “you get problem o.”
