BREAKING: Court Orders Immigration To Return Ex-gov Odili’s Seized Passport

A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) and its Comptroller-General to return the international passport seized from a former Rivers Governor, Peter Odili to him.

On Monday Justice Inyang Ekwo gave the order in a judgment on a fundamental rights enforcement suit by Odili.

Justice Ekwo declared the seizure of Odili’s passport as unconstitutional.

The NIS had, while justifying its action, claimed to have seized the passport upon a request to that effect by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on the grounds that Odili was on its watch list.
