A 28-year-old suspected fake visa agent, Temnam Lamfa, has been apprehended by the Lagos Zone 2 Police Command and charged before a Lagos Magistrate’s court for allegedly swindling a businesswoman, Sebiotiman Azeez, out of N100 million under false pretenses.

According to the police, Lamfa collected the substantial sum from Azeez, promising to secure visas for her clients to travel to the United Kingdom. However, instead of fulfilling his promise, he allegedly embezzled the money and disappeared.

In response to Azeez's complaint, Assistant Inspector General of Police Durosimi Olatoye instructed a specialized team to locate and apprehend the suspect. Utilizing intelligence gathering and tracking methods, the police successfully arrested Lamfa at a hideout in Lagos.

Following a thorough investigation led by ASP Amoo Olatonmide and his team, Lamfa was brought before the Tinubu Magistrate’s Court on Lagos Island. He faces a four-count charge, including obtaining money by false pretenses, stealing, and conduct likely to cause a breach of peace.

Prosecutor Igbinosa revealed that Lamfa had deceived Azeez, taking the money with the false promise of procuring UK visas for her clients. Instead, he converted the funds for personal use and attempted to evade capture. The charges against Lamfa are punishable under sections 411, 314, 287, and 168(1)(4) of the Lagos State Criminal Law of 2015.

During the court proceedings, Lamfa pleaded not guilty to the charges. Magistrate Mrs. Gbajumo Ayoku granted him bail set at N1 million with two sureties of equal sum. The case has been adjourned until June 10, 2024, for further mention. Until bail conditions are met, Lamfa will remain in custody at the Ikoyi Correctional Facility.
