SSS Blocks Lawmaker From Travelling to US, Seizes His Passport at the Airport

Men of the Secret Service waylaid a lawmaker of the lower chamber at the airport as he was on his way out of Nigeria.

Sunday Karim, a member of the House of Representatives from Kogi State was embarrassed by the operatives of the State Security Service while he was on his way to the United States of America.
According to Premium Times, he was prevented from boarding a flight at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja and his international passport was seized.
Rumours have it that Karim's traveling impediment may not be far from the budget padding saga in the House of Representatives that has heavily indicted Hon. Speaker Yakubu Dogara and other principal officers of the green chamber.

The lawmaker said he was scheduled to travel by Air France, and that the flight was already boarding when he was blocked.
Mr. Karim, a Peoples Democratic Party lawmaker, said his luggage had already been checked in before the incident, adding that he has “absolutely no prior notice” that the SSS was on his trail.

The House of Reps has also faced embarrassment recently after a petition by the U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle, to Mr. Dogara accusing some lawmakers of sex allegations petition, was leaked to the media.

The SSS could not be reached for comments because it does not have any spokesperson that interacts with the press.

Mr. Karim said he has been told that it was the EFCC that requested the SSS to prevent him from travelling out of the country, and strongly condemned the development.

“EFCC said I cannot travel. Nigeria has become such a lawless country? If you have issues, you would call me and get a statement from me.

“I find it difficult to believe that we’re still under a democratic government.

“They have seized my passport and I am going back to my house now,”
Mr. Karim said.
