The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has said that it has the powers to restrict movement as a border management agency if there is a need for that.
The officer in charge of the Press and Public Relations Unit of the service, Mr Sunday James, disclosed this in a statement in Abuja on Thursday.
James also said that the restriction of movements in some parts of Nigeria, especially at the border posts has nothing to do with the End SARS protest.
“As an enforcement agency in charge of border management if there’s an order restricting anybody from entry into the country, we enforce it without any prejudice.
“This does not have anything to do with EndSARS protest or an individual, it is a routine assignment.”
James, however, appealed to Nigerians to maintain law and order at all times.
