The United States Government on Monday said it is imposing a visa restriction on individuals for their actions in the November 2019 Kogi and Bayelsa State elections.

The US government said it is also extending the restriction to individuals who operate with impunity in the run-up to the September and October 2020 Edo and Ondo State elections.

Although elections have not yet held in Edo and Ondo states, the Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, imposed the visa restriction on these individuals due to their conduct in the run-up to the poll.

This was revealed in a statement signed by the spokesperson for the Department of State, Morgan Ortagus, on Monday
