Man recounts how he escaped jail after ‘Pastor’ did fake Canadian visa for him

Fake visa

An aggrieved Nigerian man has narrated how he was almost imprisoned after attempting to travel to Canada with a fake visa.

The man identified as Emmanuel Aramide, based in Dubai, took to his Facebook page to recount his ordeal.

He said he felt terribly disappointed that he was swindled by a travel agent who claimed to be a Pastor after collecting a huge amount of money from him to process a genuine visa.

He said he was able to escape being jailed after three months of series of investigations by the Dubai immigration.

He wrote:

“I didn’t want to talk about this for sometime now but just seeing this on my passport really break my spirit, like my heart is so heavy and I thought to share.

“After 3months of series of investigation from the immigration in Dubai I finally just got back my passport and I am thankful to God, but this visa as you can see was as a result of a wicked and heartless Nigerian visa agent who also is #aPastor, after being paid a huge amount of money for a legit visa decided to go as far as placing this “FAKE VISA” on my passport and got me implicated.

“Long story short I just don’t want to discuss what I’ve been through and fines that I’ve paid because of this. I am really disappointed in this current state of Nigeria and all that has become of it, sometimes I wonder if it’s a curse or a crime to be born a Nigerian, how can someone be so heartless and desperately wicked even after being paid.

“We complain every now and then against the government but most of the citizens of Nigeria are now virus that has gone beyond control this is the reason why the innocent ones faces rejection every where they go to the point that even our own fellow Africans are scared of the name “Nigeria” sometime I just wish I can renounce that name too but what to do other than being the best I can.

“There is no standard life for common Nigerians, is either you are extremely rich or extremely poor and now because of the abject poverty that this current administration has brought upon its people, 85% of Nigerian citizens don’t think straight anymore other than being fraudsters, these bad eggs now eats the church and has eaten even deeper to our so called “PASTORS”.

Prophet T. B Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations [SCOAN] has commended Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for his efforts in ensuring the safety of lives of Lagos residents in this period of the COVID-19 pandemic.

He described the Governor as one of a kind over his activity at this critical time, comparing him to the New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo, who, according to Joshua, is always on the national news to update the general public and to educate them.

Speaking during one of his live shows on Emmanuel Television, he also warned against the abuse of face masks, noting that some people were wearing their face masks for long periods of time, which he said was dangerous.

He said,

“We would like to use this time to salute our governor of Lagos State, Governor Sanwo-Olu.

“Indeed, he’s one of a kind. If you look at his activity at this critical time, it can be compared to the New York governor who is always on the national news to update the general public and to educate them.

“Our governor wants to see his people and he wants to see them living well. We pray God will increase his capacity to do more, in Jesus’ name!”

He added,

“Following global health guidelines during this period of COVID-19, the government is insisting on the use of face masks in public places – along with social distancing and handwashing.

“Face masks can be a very good thing but they can also be dangerous when they are not used properly or when they are not made with the proper material.

“The government has asked you to wear face masks when you are in public places, in the midst of people, on the streets, in vehicles when you are not alone. The government is doing this to help you.

“They are not asking you to wear it 24 hours a day. There should be a time at home when you remove it. But some people are wearing their face masks for long periods of time.

“Breathing the same air in and out or not getting enough air while breathing – all of this can affect your health, cause headaches, fatigue and worsen existing health challenges.

“So let us be careful of the amount of time we wear the face mask and also of the kind of material our face masks are made out of.

“For many, the chemicals used to make such material can be dangerous to inhale. NOTE: The face mask is your personal mask. It should be clean and made of proper material. This requires your discretion, viewers.

“Sometimes hardship can influence our reasoning. Sometimes joblessness can influence our reasoning. Sometimes fear can influence our reasoning. Sometimes pressure can influence our reasoning.”
