#EndSARS activist, Odele goes into exile
Feminist coalition member Modupe Odele says she was forced into exile due to immigration problems.
The Feminist Coalition is one of the organizers of the #EndSARS protest and has gathered about 147 million nations for this purpose.
Odele, a lawyer actively involved in the campaign, offered legal assistance to people arrested during the demonstrations.
On Thursday, in a series of tweets, the activist said, “You are forcing me to flee my country without any crime. I can no longer come and go whenever I want.
“I would have missed my flight if I hadn’t called. Because the person who was supposed to perform the second authorization was not sitting.
“I was told that I would always be stopped this way when entering or leaving Nigeria. What is my crime again? Do you provide legal assistance? “
She went on to say that the immigration officer who scanned her passport at the airport told her, “You have a problem or.”
This is the second time a lawyer will have trouble leaving the country following the #EndSARS protest.
His passport was previously confiscated several days after the October protests.
Protesters and organizers of the #EndSARS campaign have been accused of witch-hunting by the government led by President Muhammadu Bukhari.
Recently, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) received an ex parte order to freeze the accounts of 20 people and an organization associated with the campaign.
The court’s decision was sent to the headquarters of Access Bank, Fidelity Bank, First Bank Nigeria, Guaranty Trust Bank, United Bank of Africa and Zenith Bank.
Among the victims are Bolatito Rachil Oduala, Chima David Ibebunjo, Mary Douz Kpengwa, Saadat Temitop Bibi, Bassey Victor Israel, Wisdom Busaosovo Obi, Nicholas Ihalea Osazele, Ebere Idibi, Akintomid Lanre Yusuf, Uhuo Ezen.
Gatefield Nigeria Limited, owner of Gatefield, an advocacy group that supported media coverage of the protest by providing funds to reporters, blocked its account with Access Bank.
In addition, several people were illegally detained by the police in Lagos, Osuna and FCT without trial. However, these actions were widely condemned by activists and legal scholars across the country.
