The International Passport of one of the champions of #EndSARS protest, Modupe Odele, was reportedly seized at the airport last night and this has sparked reactions on social media.
Tweeting about Moe Odele’s passport seizure, Tosin @Donteewrites wrote:
Seizing @Mochievous International Passport tonight at the Airport is another sign of the Dictatorship that were witnessing under the Buhari Presidency…. This will be resisted
Oby Ezekwesili also reacted to Moe Odele’s passport seizure:
What have I just read about @Mochievous ?
Is the news accurate?
Did the SSS under the supervision of @MBuhari @NGRPresident truly infringe Modupe Odele’s constitutional right to movement because she expressed her right to protest through #EndSARS?
Is the news true?
Ezekwesili later tweeted this morning:
I have written the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno of @NigeriaGov @MBuhari @NGRPresident to immediately retrieve the passport of @Mochievous Modupe Odele from the State Security Service and deliver it to her with apologies. Nigeria can never be a Police State.#EndSARS
How an administration of @MBuhari @NGRPresident @NigeriaGov that find themselves in a hole of trenchant dissatisfaction of citizens just keeps on digging deeper into the sea level is a wonder!
You think repressing the rights of young #EndSARS protesters is your solution? Haba.
Moe Odele tweeted this morning about the incident but didn’t give much details of what happened.
Hello everyone. Thank you so much. I’m fine and I’m safe. We haven’t confirmed yet why I was stopped on Sunday or by whom. But I’ve been invited back in with my lawyers today. I’ll update when I have more information but please don’t spread false news. That is dangerous ��
