The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Friday, arrested one Enock Ifeoluwa Ogungbamigbe, an alleged serial visa scammer who specialize in duping Nigerians desperate to migrate to Canada either to work or further their education, through fake visa and job offers.
The Commission in a statement signed by its Spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren stated that 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 Commission, 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.
His arrest followed a petition by a victim who lost N5 million to the suspect as processing fees for Visa to Canada.
The suspect had also promised the victim a job upon arrival in Canada. But he only delivered fake visas to the victims and all efforts to recover the money were futile.
The suspect would be charged in court as soon as the investigation is concluded.
