A Nigerian lady named @Temitope_olagbegi on Instagram has cried out after her passport was seized by Nigerian Immigration Service officials after she told them to wear masks due to COVID-19.
Olagbegi revealed that she had gone to the Immigration office and she saw that they were handling people’s files with wearing a mask, she told them to wear one but they disregarded her.
She further reveales that she begun to scream because she lost a dear friend a month ago but they seized her passport instead.
“It was a heart breaking experience for me coming into the country to see the Nigerian Immigration not wearing masks.I lost it! How can you be handling multiple passports without gloves or masks.
“These guys, speak to people and droplets can get unto passports. Is this not how the virus is transmitted? I said to them in a friendly manner at first to wear their masks and the complete disregard infuriated me.
“I begun to scream. I couldn’t take it. Are they ignorant? If they are ignorant, I dare say, they should not be there as, govt representatives. I lost a dear friend to COVID less than a month ago. Why is this not being taking seriously?
“The front line into the country!! It made no sense to me. And when I started to raise my voice, my passport was seized. The official told me to make sure I go to Lagos Island to shout at them to wear their masks. Unbelievable!! Did they think seizing my passport would scare me? No way.
“I demanded to see the highest authority. And what was I told? To please delete the pictures and videos I took. Heartbreaking!!”
