Police nab 5 over N6.8m Canadian visa scam

Five persons have been arrested by the police in La­gos for allegedly issu­ing fake visas to seven travelers after collect­ing N6,766,000 from them.
Three of the sus­pects, Titilayo Afose, Akintomide Ebenezer and Olabanji Daisi, who allegedly issued the fake visas in Ondo State were immediate­ly arrested. The three suspects led the police to arrest their other ac­complices: Lookman Ayodele Kareem and Temitope Yusuf.
According to the La­gos State PPRO, DSP Joseph Alabi, the seven victims approached the suspects to assist them in procuring Ca­nadian visas but they ended up issuing them fake visas.
