Further challenging the NIS to release her passport if truely the government did not generate a No-Fly-List, Odele wrote:

"My passport is still being held after it was seized at the Lagos international airport. If there’s no no-fly list, that’s okay but why has my passport not being released yet?

"Holding on to my passport without giving me any reason for it is a breach of my constitutional right. I’ve not been informed of any investigation against me, I’m not running. I am here. Investigate. Ask me questions but do not continue to hold on to my passport with NO reasons.

"1st of November, I was stopped and my passport taken some minutes to boarding this flight. No reason was given, other than “you are under investigation,” Modupe Odele said.

AllNews had reported that the former Minister of Information Oby Ezekwesili asked the National Security Adviser to Babagana Mungono to immediately release Odele's passport.
