NSCDC Arrests Pastor Over Alleged N1.6m Visa Scam

Pastor Michael Ogundepo, 39, has been detained by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Ondo State Command, on suspicion of visa fraud.

The suspect obtained N1.67 million, according to a statement made on Monday in Akure by DSC Aidamenbor Daniel, the Command’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), to secure a visa for a woman named Miss Fagbuyiro Ajetomobi-Yemi.

Daniel continued, claiming that Ogundepo of No. 15 Ewu Agbo Street, Ikorodu Lagos, confiscated the complainant’s money and passport for two months, preventing her from reapplying for a visa.

“The command invited the suspect severally, but he declined the invitation. He claimed to be outside the country and used a fake international number to call the complainant as a disguise.
“So, the suspect was arrested when he was invited to collect the sum of N3,000,000 for a Visa job, without him knowing it was a bait.

“However, investigation has revealed that he has duped several other unsuspecting clients,” the NSCDC PRO said.
Daniel said that the suspect would be charged to court after completion of investigation.

According to him, the action of the pastor is punishable under Section 419 of Criminal Code Law, Cap 37, Vol. 1 of Ondo State, 2006.
