Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has reacted to the news of the prevention of EndSARS frontliner, Moe from leaving Nigeria and her passport seized.
Modupe “Moe” Odele is one of the members of the Feminist Coalition who provided support to protesters during the End SARS protests but has been prevented from leaving the country and her passport seized.
Ezekwesili reacting, questioned the government for seizing and prevent Moe from travelling.
Moe, who celebrated her birthday on Monday, November 2 but ahead of the celebration she had attempted travelling to the Maldives on Sunday, November 1 but an intelligence agency in Nigeria prevented her from travelling and seized her passport.
Though Moe didn’t mention the intelligence agency that seized her passport Ezekwesili named the SSS.
The former minister further stated that she has written to the National Security Adviser to “immediately retrieve the passport of Modupe Odele from the State Security Service.”
Moe in her post had written, “For my birthday, I had planned a trip to the Maldives. It was really for a break as the events of the last three weeks have exhausted my mind and body in a way I have never been exhausted in my life.
“I went to the airport, passed through immigration, and while I was putting my bags through the body and baggage scanner, the immigration officer who had previously cleared me, called me back. He told me he had orders from above to detain me.
“Okay, at this point I’m like excuse me, my flight is in an hour. On what grounds are you detaining me? He didn’t respond. Instead, he goes to his computer where he typed in my name and something that looked like a ‘wanted poster’ popped up on the portal.
“He blocked my view so I couldn’t see most of it but I saw some of it. And it read something like – ‘This person is under investigation by XYZ Intelligence Agency. If seen, they should be apprehended on sight.”
