‘We can restrict movement if need arises’ –Immigration Service
NEWSMAN, Abuja – Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has said it has the powers to restrict movement as a border management agency if there is need for that.
Officer in charge of Press and Public Relations Unit of the service, Sunday James, made this known in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.
James who appealed to Nigerians to maintain law and order at all times, also said rumours are making rounds about restriction of movements in some part 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, News Agency of Nigeria NAN reported.
“This doesn’t have anything to do with EndSARS protest or an individual, it is a routine assignment,” James said.
According to James, rumours are making the rounds about restriction of movements in some part of the country especially at the border posts, adding that this has nothing to do with the EndSARS protest.
