EFCC Arraigns Man for N11.5m Visa Scam

The EFCC, on Wednesday, June 29, 2016 arraigned Abdulsalam Goni Sanda before Justice Olubunmi Banjoko of the Federal Capital Territory High Court sitting in Gudu, Abuja, on a 4-count charge bordering on obtaining by false pretence to the tune of N11,450,000.00 (Eleven Million, Four Hundred And Fifty Thousand Naira).


Sanda was alleged to have presented himself as an adhoc staff with the Saudi Arabian Embassy and also a travel agent with the capacity to secure visa for the complainant, one Bello Isah and 49 others who wanted to perform the 2014 hajj.

However, the suspect gave the petitioners photocopies of the visas and asked for full payment after which he promised that they will get the original copy from one Musa Ibrahim.


The said Ibrahim collected the photocopies from the complainant and vanished into the thin air. The case is adjourned to September 27, 2016 for trial.
