About 48 hours after a court backed Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari on an executive order aimed at firming up his campaign against graft, the government has said that 50 high-profile Nigerians have now been banned from leaving the country.

“A number of enforcement procedures are currently in place by which the Nigeria Immigration Service and other security agencies have placed no fewer than 50 high profile persons directly affected by EO6 on watch-list and restricted them from leaving the county pending the determination of their cases,” presidential spokesman Garba Shehu said in a statement on Saturday.
