Written by Dotun Oladipo for Eagle online
For forging Nigeria's visa, two Britons have been arraigned by the Nigeria Immigration Service.
Ian Cunliff and Ofir More were on Wednesday arraigned before a Federal High Court in Lagos on charges of visa fraud.
They were alleged to have forged the expatriate quota approval with reference number MIA/B/3939/1/41 on September 28, 2011.
According to the prosecution, they forged the signature of the Director, Citizenship and Business of the Ministry of Interior, Adetayo Sode.
The 16-count criminal charge, FHC/L/54c/12, which was brought before Justice Binta Murtala-Nyarko, by D.I Babale, a Nigerian Immigration Service legal officer, also added three companies as co-defendants in the case.
The three companies are C25 Nigeria limited, WTC International Holdings Nigeria Limited and WTC UK Limited.
Murtala-Nyarko fixed hearing in the case for May 24, 2012.
