EFCC arrests alleged serial Canadian visa scammer in Abuja
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Friday, arrested one Enock Ifeoluw Ogungbamigbe, an alleged serial visa 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 Commission, when he responded to an appointment to procure a visa for an applicant intending to migrate to Canada.
Spokesperson of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, disclosed that unknown to the suspect, it was a 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 to court as soon as the investigation is concluded.
