The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, today, March 17, 2023, arrested one Enock Ifeoluwe Ogungbamigbe, an alleged serial visa scammer who specializes in duping Nigerians desperate to migrate to Canada either to work or further their education, through fake visas and job offers.
According to a press release on Friday, 17th March 2023 signed by the EFCC Head of Media & Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, said 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 N5million 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.
