We seized ex-Gov Peter Odili’s passport on EFCC’s command – Immigration to court

The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has said that the international passport of the ex- Rivers Governor, Sir Peter Odili, was seized by its officers on the order of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

NIS said this on Friday at the Federal High Court Abuja. Information Guide Nigeria

The agency prayed the high court to dismiss a suit instituted by the former governor to compel the release of the passport to him.

Mr Jimoh Abdulkadir Adamu, the Counsel to the Immigration, while defending the action of his clients presented a letter by EFCC ordering Immigration to seize the passport because Odili was on the watchlist for some infractions.

Adamu also asked the court to reject the case because the name on the seized international passport did not tally with the name of Peter Odili that instituted the court case. jamb results
