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

Justice Inyang Ekwo gave the order on Monday 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.

Details shortly…
