Nigeria’s Presidential Steering Committee (PSC) on COVID-19 has declared 90 passengers who arrived in Nigeria from Brazil, India and Turkey between 8th May 2021 and 15th May 2021, through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, and Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, as persons of interest (POI), noting that they posed considerable danger to public health.

The committee said it will disable the travel passports of the affected passengers for a period not less than one year, cancel visas or permits of foreign nationals among them and may prosecute them.

The 108 passengers, which include Nigerians and foreigners, were accused of violating Nigeria’s COVID-19 travel protocol by evading the mandatory 7-day quarantine for persons arriving from restricted countries.
