FG opens up on no-fly list hours after one of the #EndSARS promoter narrates ordeal
The federal government has denied putting names of #EndSARS protesters on a no-fly list.
This is coming hours after one of the #EndSARS promoters and a member of the Feminist Coalition, Modupe Odele alleged that she was prevented from travelling out of the country by immigration and raised alarm of a no-fly list.
A no-fly list is a register of people banned from boarding commercial aircraft for travel within, into, or out of a country.
Recall that several media publications had reported that a no-fly list of “hundreds of Nigerians” the government suspects of energising the #EndSARS protest is being compiled.
According to media publications, the minister of interior, Rauf Aregbesola was allegedly responsible for the list.
Reacting to the allegation, the ministry of interior in a tweet on Tuesday dismissed the claim and stated that it is a fake news.
“The Ministry of Interior did not, has not and will not generate any no-fly list. Ignore fake news please!” the ministry tweeted.
