Why Buhari banned 50 high-profile Nigerians from travelling – Presidency

President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday ordered a travel ban on 50 high-profile Nigerians to stop them from selling off assets acquired with stolen funds, the presidency has said.

The individuals, whose identities were not disclosed were banned from travelling abroad.

Those banned include those whose assets, valued at N50million and above, are subject of corruption investigation and litigation.

His spokesperson, Garba Shehu, in an email response to questions by state house correspondents on Sunday said “the very essence of the order is to make for speedy trials and conclusion of graft cases”.

Mr Shehu said the order, known as Executive Order 6, is the first of its kind in Nigeria in the fight against corruption.
