The Federal Government has denied generating a ‘no-fly’ list of youths and persons who participated in the recent #EndSARS protests.
The Federal Ministry of Interior stated this in a tweet on Tuesday in reaction to a media report by an online publication.
@MinOfInteriorNG tweeted: “The Ministry of Interior did not, has not and will not generate any no-fly list. Ignore fake news, please!”
This is coming after one of the #ENDSARS protest promoter, Modupe Odele, was allegedly prevented from travelling out of the country.
The lawyer said she was on her way to the Maldives to celebrate her birthday when she was accosted by immigration officers.
Odele said she was detained while her passport was seized by the officers and she was made to miss her flight.
In reaction, a former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, said she has written the National Security Adviser, Babagana Mungono, over the matter.
Ezekwesili tweeted, “Today, I have written to Babagana Mungono, the National Security Adviser of @MBuhari @NGRPresident to immediately retrieve Modupe Odele’s passport from the SSS and publicly apologise for trampling on her freedoms. Maybe they’ll be wise this time. We’ll wait and see.”
