How this matter of fake visa has been surfaced? Who is behind this racket? Read the complete report here.
Based on the information from the reliable sources, Goa police is investigating the fake visa racket that has been helping the Nigerian nationals to stay longer in Goa. According to the sources, these facts have been revealed from the two Nigerians arrested by the Porvorim police last week with the huge consignment of narcotics.
Based on the information published in the local daily Herald, one of the accused arrested by the Porvorim police was residing in the state of Goa since 2009 and he never visited his country back all these years but he still possesses the passport stamped by the Nigerian embassy, claimed the sources.
According to the sources, in the police interrogation, the accused Emmanuel Nkeoga Chidi had confessed of paying rupees 80 thousand to the agent for the visa stamping process and also said that he had sent his passport via mail and the Nigerian embassy had approved it and sent it back to him in Goa.
The Porvorim police sources have said that they have written a letter to the SP, Foreign Regional Registration Office (FRRO) Panjim to verify the same and look into the authenticity of the visa stamped on the passport.
The above fact has been confirmed by the Porvorim PI (Police Inspector) Jivba Dalvi saying that they have written to the FRRO and also asked to verify the bank accounts of both the accused. The Porvorim Police have also asked FRRO to check with the Indian embassy in Nigeria what business the accused mentioned while availing the business visa.
It may be recalled that Last week Porvorim Police under the guidance PI Jivba Dalvi had arrested two Nigerians Nkeoga Chidi (38) and Lionze Nwato Ambrose (32) for peddling weed popularly known as ‘marijuana’. Police had recovered two kg of the narcotics from the accused who were then arrested.
Police had also recovered the Goa registered motorbike from the possession of the accused said the sources. According to the sources, the main accused Chidi was earlier arrested in 2015 by Calangute Police for dealing in cocaine on the Calangute coast and later he was released on the bail.
The above case proves that these Nigerians get inside and come out in no time and they again start their business in full swing without the fear of the system. All this is not possible without the political and legal support to them in this state. There is no two way about the fact that Nigerians are the major source of drugs coming into the state. Drugs, Gambling and Prostitution seems to have been making a lot of money to the state and hence this business are well protected and so their masters. Do you wish to leave your comments on this?
