Police arrests 20 fake visa racketeers in Lagos

The Police Special Fraud Unit (PSFU) disclosed that it has arrested over twenty suspects who specialised in producing fake entry visas of some foreign countries.

PSFU Spokesman, Audi Lawal, revealed this in a statement to the New Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Lagos.
According to Lawal, the visa racketeers were arrested at several embassies of foreign countries.
He said that the suspects specialized in forgery of visa processing documents such as passports, bank statements, company letterheads and immigration stamps of several overseas countries.
Lawal said 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.
“The Polıce Special Fraud Unit in its effort to discourage members of the public from patronizing 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.
The PSFU spokesman advised visa applicants against patronizing agents using fake travel documents for processing visa at embassies in Nigeria.
Lawal, however, urged visa applicants to always access embassies and high commissions information through their official websites on visa application procedures.
