If you have operator status (@ or a gold star, usually) you can type:

!unban nickname

Make sure the setting fantasy is on with: /bs set #channel fantasy on|off
Change the #channel part to your channel's name.

Alternatively, you can type:

/mode #channel -b nickname
(If the nickname was banned)


/mode #channel -b hostmask (You will usually have to copy and paste this letter-for-letter).
Again, make sure your change the channel's name to yours.


Dependent on your client, you could "double-click" the chat window (of the channel the "someone" was banned in) and remove the ban from there!

Hopes this helps,
