Immigration Stops 20 Intending Passengers From Leaving Nigeria At Lagos Airport by Busolami2015(f): 10:08am On Jun 24
No fewer than 20 Nigerians have been stopped from travelling out of the country through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos in the last one week by the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Airport Command.

A source close to the Command in Lagos confided most of those stopped could not give tangible reasons for wanting to travel out and details of their travels.

Most of them also could not provide documents to support their claims while it was observed that some of them used agents to perfect their papers to travel out by all means.

Also the NIS, MMIA Command on Wednesday, reunited a mentally-challenged female Nigerian, Motunde Oluwatobi Victoria with her family members at the airport.

It was gathered Motunde, who had been in Saudi Arabia since 2018 and engaged as a house maid, returned aboard Egypt Air at 1:30pm on Tuesday and was incoherent, prompting the Command to search for her family members.

Once immigration officials discovered Motunde was not mentally-balanced, they searched for her family contact through the social media and located her immediate older sister, Titilope Deborah Babatunde.

Her elder sister lauded officials of immigration at the airport for reuniting her with her sister.

She confirmed Motunrayo, who had been in Saudi Arabia since 2018, was engaged as a house maid, stressing she got wind of her health challenge about two weeks ago.

“I am very grateful to the immigration service, MMIA Command for reuniting me with my sister. Initially when I received the call, I concluded that it was a scammer at work.

“What immigration has done has further reinvigorated my belief about Nigeria. It shows that to some extent, we are still secure in Nigeria.

“If not for the immigration, I will not know that my sister has been brought back to Nigeria. We will still think she was in Saudi Arabia,” she said.

It will not be well with any official that stops anyone trying to leave the country except a contraband item was found on such person. Why won't anyone wants to run away when Buhari had turned the country into a slaughter's slab?

How is it your business to know why people want to travel? Your business is making sure they are not criminals.

Asides stopping travelers with fake documents and intercepting trafficked people, what's their business with a person's reasons to travel out? Can't I travel for pleasure?

You are not ready to fix the country yet you are stopping people looking for a better life.

It’s not hard, simply go through neighboring countries like Benin republic or Ghana.

This is an abuse of power and the immigration can be sued for it.

Will their monies be refunded?

Before you say let them stay and fix the country. The people at the top are not ready to fix it.

In fact they benefit from the problems ravaging the country.

A Fulani man that has 10 oil wells in the south will never support restructuring.

Who said, you cannot build your country from abroad?

Imagine these imbechiles, you don't want people to leave this your godforsaken country where cows and cow fuckers are the real citizens, am still bewildered by the reasoning behold these people with mark of the beast, their dullard in chief made us happy by revealing to us that dot is the only visible thing in a big EMPTY circle and am asked of what the mark of beast is;

By their mark of the beast, you'll know them. Always quick to anger and welcoming to violence. They are slaves to one angry blood thirsty nymphomaniac prophet that cuddled their brain with one terrorism handbook attributed to one dirty sky god. Peace have never been near them.
These people with mark of the beast on their temple are horrible, if their terrorist tendencies ain't enough, they now want to cower the entire populeuse with intimidation.

You people and violence eeeh! Especially when your bedwetter prophet mohammed and nymphomaniac paedophilia allah is involved.

We all know the chief rapist that even printed a handbook for violence and terrorism. We all know that the idiot mohammed prophet died from poison that he ate while eating to rape the jewish under age girl. Your mohammed died like a rabid dog and was buried where hungry pigs exhumed his decaying corpse and ate almost half of his body, it was written that the sound his testicles made when the pigs were chewing the gonorrhea and syphilis laden balls was kuru kata, kururu katamkantaka...
He died like an 1mbecile and a dog with spit gushing out of his mouth as a bastard son of a LovePeddler from medina.

So they want to use their problems to pull everyone backwards?

Abuse of power.

If they have their travel documents and they aren't fake, then who the hell do you think you are stopping people from traveling out?
