Socio-Economic Right and Accountability Project, SERAP, has described President Muhammadu Buhari‘s banning of 50 high-profile Nigeria as arbitrary, repressive and illegal, as it breaches constitutional rights and the country’s international obligations.
“A travel ban by its nature is an interference with the right to leave one’s country. It is neither necessary nor proportionate to prevent dissipation of stolen assets or stop politically exposed persons (PEPs) from tampering with any such assets. The ban should be immediately lifted and the order rescinded,” the organisation said.
