The Comptroller-General of Immigration (CGI), Kemi Nandap, has directed that restrictions on movement at Nigeria- Niger border be lifted.

Nandap gave the directive in a statement signed by the Acting Service Public Relations Officer (PRO), Mr Kenneth Kure, on Thursday in Abuja.

The CGI’s order followed an earlier order by the Federal Government for the reopening of the borders between the two countries which were shut down in conformity with the decision of ECOWAS.

The ECOWAS had imposed sanctions on Niger Republic including the closure of land and air borders, following the coup that ousted President Mahamed Bazoum.

She directed all Comptrollers stationed at States and Border Commands along the Nigeria-Niger Republic border to comply promptly and lift all restrictions on human movement.

“Following the directive from the Federal Government of Nigeria to reopen borders between Nigeria and Niger Republic, the Comptroller General of Nigeria Immigration Service, Kemi Nanna Nandap, has issued a directive to all Comptrollers stationed at States and Border Commands along the Nigeria-Niger Republic border, to promptly ensure strict compliance and lift restrictions on human movements,” the statement read in part.

The CGI assured that the service would continue to facilitate safe and orderly border crossings while upholding the integrity and security of Nigeria’s borders.
