A lawyer, who participated in the #EndSARS protest that took place across naija, Modupe Odele, has said that the naija Immigration Service was yet to release her passport after it was seized while she tried to travel to the Maldives for her birthday recently through the Lagos airport.

The lawyer, who volunteered her service to help free peaceful protesters detained by law enforcement agents, was stopped from flying out of naija on Sunday.

A source at the NIS told SaharaReporters on Tuesday that the names of Odele and other active participants in the EndSARS protest were included on the no-fly list sent to the agency by the Defence Intelligence Agency following their efforts in rallying demonstrators at the Lekki Toll Gate area of Lagos where naijan Army personnel attacked and killed several protesters on the evening of October 20, 2020.

A no-fly list is a register of people banned from boarding commercial aircrafts for travel within, into, or out of a country.

Giving an update on the matter on Tuesday evening, Odele in a post on Twitter said, “Hello people, I went to retrieve my passport today but was told this: “We cannot release your passport because you are still under investigation”.

“As of now, I’m not aware of any charges against me or what I am under investigation for.”
