A spokesperson of the U.S. Department of State, Ms Morgan Ortagus, who announced this in a statement on Tuesday, said the action applied to those responsible for election-related violence.
 
Ortagus said the unnamed individuals had “operated with impunity at the expense of the Nigerian people and undermined democratic principles and human rights”.
 
Sani, while reacting, described the visa restriction by the US government as a welcome development and urged other countries to toe the same path.
