The Federal Government has continued its clampdown on #EndSARS protesters.
On Wednesday, a caterer who provided food to protesters and helped in sourcing for funds for a wounded protester was refused to be issued a renewal passport.
The caterer, Mosopefoluwa Odeseye, whose account had been frozen by the Central Bank of Nigeria in October, was denied a passport by the Nigeria Immigration Service.
Odeseye in a tweet explained that she had gone to renew her passport at the Alausa Passport Office, Lagos, when she was informed that she had been blacklisted and asked to proceed to Abuja.
She tweeted, “First, it was Central Bank locking up all my bank accounts, now it is Nigerian immigration not issuing my passport at Alausa! To what end, Nigeria? To what end? I applied for a re-issue at Alausa, captured some days ago and asked to come pick today then I’m told that I have been blacklisted?”
However, a top immigration officer, who confirmed the passport denial, said they were acting based on orders from above.
“We have asked her to see the Assistant Comptroller General in charge of passports at the head office in Abuja. We are only acting on instruction,” she said.
