NIS Says Travelers May Be Restricted If Need Arises But Not Targeting EndSARS Protesters

The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), has said it reserves the right to restrict movement as a border management agency if there is a need for that.

Mr Sunday James, the officer in charge of the Press and Public Relations Unit of the service, stated this in a statement issued on Thursday, November 5, in Abuja.

According to James, rumours are making the rounds about the restriction of movements in some parts of the country especially at the border posts, adding that this has nothing to do with the EndSARS protest.

“As an enforcement agency in charge of border management; if there is an order restricting anybody from entry into the country, we enforce it without any prejudice.

“This doesn’t have anything to do with #EndSARS protest or an individual; it is a routine assignment,” the Immigration officer said.

The Immigration further appealed to Nigerians to maintain law and order at all times.
