Sahara Reporters recently disclosed that Mrs. Okoli Chioma Egodi, a Nigerian woman, has been placed on a watchlist by the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun.

The Controller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service was contacted to implement this action. Mrs. Okoli is currently facing legal action from both the Nigeria Police Force and Erisco Foods Limited due to a product review she posted on Facebook.

Despite public outcry and calls from various organizations, including Amnesty International, for an end to the harassment of Mrs. Okoli, the Inspector General of Police has requested that she be closely monitored and prevented from leaving the country.

The official letter, dated April 2, 2024, and signed by A.A. Elleman DCP, Head of the IGP Monitoring Unit, outlines the allegations against Mrs. Okoli, including criminal conspiracy, de-marketing, blackmail, attempted extortion, and cyberbullying.

The Nigeria Police Force has instructed the Nigeria Immigration Service to apprehend Mrs. Okoli if she is spotted and report back to the IGP Monitoring Unit.

Part of the letter reads:
 “This office is investigating a Case of Criminal Conspiracy, De Marketing, Blackmail, attempted Extortion, and Cyber Bullying reported to the Inspector-General of Police against the above-mentioned person whose photographs are attached herewith and the need to request for your agency’s cooperation has become imperative.
“In view of this, you are kindly requested to watch list and deny her exit out of the Country, and if seen arrest and inform the IGP Monitoring Unit, Force Headquarters, Abuja through phone numbers 07036799008 or 07034779065 or the nearest Police Station.
“While anticipating your usual cooperation, kindly accept the assurances and esteem regards of the Inspector-General of Police, please.”

Meanwhile, Muhammad Abubakar, the Sultan of Sokoto, has once again expressed concern over the hunger and hardship in the country.He bemoaned that the country’s economic crisis has spiraled out of control and that Nigerians are starving.

The traditional ruler addressed the 6th executive committee meeting of the Northern Traditional Rulers Council (NTRC), which was held in Kaduna State on Wednesday.

He stated that instability and poverty are the main causes of problems for the people of the north.

“To make matters worse, we are faced with rising levels of poverty of most of our people; a lack of normal sources of livelihood for the common man to have even a good meal a day,” he said.
“But I believe talking about insecurity and the rising level of poverty are two issues that we cannot fold our arms and think everything is okay.
“I have said it so many times and at so many fora that, things are not okay in Nigeria and of course, things are not okay in the north.
“To me, this government is a continuation of the former government; it is the same party.
“So, what really is the problem? I think that is one of the reasons we are here to talk to ourselves.”
The Sultan stated that traditional rulers owe it to Nigerians who trust in traditional institutions to provide solutions to the country’s numerous difficulties.
“Education is important, so whatever issue you want to bring here, you must talk about education, you must talk about health issues and of the two monsters that have been harassing all of us here that is insecurity and poverty,” he said.
“And let’s not take it for granted; people are quiet, they are quiet for a reason because people have been talking to them.
‘We have been talking to them, we have been trying to tell them things will be okay and they keep on believing.
“I pray to Almighty Allah that they will not one day wake up and say we no longer believe in you, because that would be the biggest problem because we can’t quieten these people as traditional, spiritual leaders and diplomats forever.
“We have reached that level, people are very agitated, people are hungry, they are angry, but they still believe there are people who can talk to them, they believe in some of their governors, some other traditional rulers, and some of their religious leaders.
“Fortunately, some of us double as traditional and religious leaders.
“So, we have this onerous task of reaching out to everybody, calming them down, and assuring them things will be okay, and they should continue to pray and pray and still do something good because prayer without work will not bring anything.”
