Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have  arrested one Enock Ifeoluwa Ogungbamigbe alleged to specialise in duping Nigerians desperate to migrate to Canada either to work or further their education by procuring fake visas for them.

Spokesman for the EFCC, Mr., Wilson Uwujaren, said in a statement that the 32-year old who owns a Garden in Mpape on the outskirts 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.

“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 to court as soon as the investigation is concluded,” Uwujaren said.
