Visa scam: Travel agent swindles applicant of N880, 000

A travel agent, Samuel James, allegedly swindled a job applicant, Mr Kelechi Kingsley of N880,000 in the pretext of procuring him a Canadian Visa.

 The suspect, whose residential address was not provided, on Tuesday appeared before  an Igbosere  Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State. 23-year-old James is facing a three-count charge of conspiracy, obtaining money under false pretences and stealing.

The Prosecutor, Insp. Rosemary Ehimegbe, told the court that the defendant and others still at large committed the offences sometime in September at 10:00a.m. on Victoria Island, Lagos.

Ehimegbe alleged that the defendant obtained the sum from Kingsley under false pretences of helping him to secure a Canadian Visa.

She said that the offences contravened Sections 411, 314 and 287 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The Magistrate, Mrs O.A. Adeshina, granted him bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.

Adeshina said that the sureties must be gainfully employed and show evidence of tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

The  magistrate adjourned the case until Nov. 20, for trial.
