No. Your passport would be inspected at the point of departure and you would not be allowed to board the flight if your passport has expired. Simple logic.

By rights, you can use an expired passport or any other proof of nationality to enter your own country, but unfortunately, the corrupt immigration officers at the Nigerian point of entry might see this as an opportunity to make a payday by delaying and denying you your rights: You will definitely NOT have any problem leaving the US with it.

What immigration law forbids a person from returning to his own country if he is able to prove that he is a citizen of the country?
Whether expired or not expired passport, he is entitled to return home with it;and even without a passport, it is the duty and the responsibility of Immigration officers to receive a citizen who is able to prove his/her citizenship: and expired passport is a valid proof that one is a citizen.

If he's transiting through another country, he might not be allowed to board a plane. An expired passport is just as good as no passport. Just like u can't drive on an expired drivers license, u sure cant fly on a expired passport either.

Even if he is transiting through another country, he can't be stopped, no immigration authority has the legal rights to stop him from returning to his own country with expired passport.
