Visa applicant jailed for filing fake document with US Embassy

A Nigerian visa applicant has been handed a jail sentence after being arraigned for presenting a forged letter of invitation to the officials at the United States Embassy in Lagos.

38-year-old Lukman Owolabi Ogunsuada who presented the fake letter to secure B1 and B2 Visa categories, was found guilty of the two count charges of forgery preferred against him by the police at the special fraud unit (PSFU) Ikoyi.

Before the court judgement in the trial which spanned for three years, the convict confessed to editing the original letter of invitation with his phone and inserting his name. Ogunsuada said he thought the embassy officials won’t be able to detect that the letter of invitation was forged.

Chief Magistrate N. A Layeni of Apapa Magistrates Court sentenced Ogunsuada to one year imprisonment or alternatively to a fine of N100, 000 and 200 hours community service in count one of the charge. He was also handed a fine of N20,000 in count two of the charges. The sentence is expected to run concurrently.
