JUST IN: EFCC Arrests Alleged Serial Canadian Visa Scammer In Abuja
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, on Friday, arrested one Enock Ogungbamigbe, an alleged visa serial scammer, who specialises in duping Nigerians desperate to migrate to Canada either to work or further their education, through fake visa and job offers.
The 32-year old who owns a Garden in Mpape, a suburb of Abuja, was picked up at Transcorp Hotel, Abuja by operatives of the anti-graft agency, when he responded to an appointment to procure a visa for an applicant intending to migrate to Canada. Unknown to him, that it was bait.
The EFCC’s Director of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren revealed this in a statement obtained by our correspondent on Friday.
He noted that Ogungbamigbe’s arrest followed a petition by a victim who lost N5 million to the suspect as processing fees for visa to Canada.
Uwujaren said, “The suspect had also promised the victim a job upon arrival in Canada. But he only delivered fake Visas to his victims and all efforts to recover the money were futile.
“The suspect will be charged to court as soon as the investigation is concluded.”
