Processing Your Visa? Police Have This Warning For You
Dear visa applicants, stop patronising agents using fake travel documents for processing visa at embassies in Nigeria.
Make efforts to always access embassies and high commissions information through their official websites on visa application procedures.
This advice, which seems more like a warning is coming from the Police Special Fraud Unit (PSFU).
The unit says it has arrested over 20 suspects who specialised in counterfeiting entry visas of some foreign countries.
Spokesman for the PSFU, Audi Lawal, said in a statement on Saturday in Lagos that the visa racketeers were arrested at several embassies of the foreign countries in Lagos.
He said that the suspects specialised in forgery of visa processing documents such as passports, bank statements, company letterheads and immigration stamps of several overseas countries.
“The Police Special Fraud Unit in its effort to discourage members of the public from patronising racketeers and false document makers, recently busted a cartel which specialises in counterfeiting.
“This cartel specialised in UK, Canada and Shengen visas, Nigerian passports, bank statements, various countries’ immigration stamps and letter of introduction from corporate organisations,” Lawal said.
He added that all the suspects confessed to have committed the crimes and were charged to court for prosecution to serve as deterrent to others involved in such illegal activities.
