On ‘Putting’ #EndSARS Protesters On Travel Ban List FG Speaks

A suggestion that the Federal Government is preparing a no-fly list against protesters of #EndSARS has been denied.

A no-fly list is a record of individuals who are forbidden from boarding commercial aircraft to travel inside, into, or out of a country.

An online news source had previously claimed that a no-fly list of’ hundreds of Nigerians’ was secretly assembled by the government.

The list consists of Nigerians who encouraged the demonstrations, according to the news source.

In a tweet, however, the Minister of the Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, replied,

But the Ministry of the Interior debunked the assertion in a Tuesday tweet, saying it was fake news.

“The Ministry of Interior did not, has not and will not generate any no-fly list. Ignore fake news please!”

— the ministry tweeted.

The report was released after Modupe Odele, a member of the Feminist Alliance, was allegedly prevented from traveling out of the country by the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS).

Odele, an attorney, actively engaged in the #EndSARS movement, providing legal support to citizens detained during the protests.

She was detained and her passport confiscated at Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos, the lawyer said.
