Nigeria Immigration Tells Modupe Odele When to Pick Up Her Passport
A Nigerian lawyer who was among those advocating for #EndSARS has gotten an update from the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) on when to come and collect her seized passport.
Modupe Odele took to Twitter to cry out after her passport was seized many days ago without any explanation.
The NIS said Odele’s passport will be ready for collection from 4pm today (Friday).
Odele revealed this via her verified Twitter handle.
“I’ve been told by Immigration that my passport is ready for collection from 4pm today.
“I’ve respectfully informed them I’ll be there on Monday to pick it up.
“Since today is Friday, I asked for an earlier time but was told it will only be ready from 4pm today Friday,” she wrote.
The NIS on Thursday denied her passport was seized because of her involvement in the campaign against police brutality.
Odele, who is a lawyer, had narrated how NIS officials stopped her from flying out of the country.
She was actively involved in the End SARS campaign, offering legal aid to persons who were arrested during the demonstration.
