Oluchi Amalinze (not real name), a visa agent in Lagos, has accused Emmanuel Adelodun of defrauding her of N8 million.

Amalinze told FIJ that in March 2020, an acquaintance introduced Adelodun to her when she needed someone who could help her clients get a Canadian visa.

She stated that Emmanuel showed her shreds of evidence that he could get Canadian visas for eight of her clients. Each of the eight paid N1 million, according to Emmanuel.

“We agreed that if my clients did not get their visas, he would refund their money. Thereafter, he started working,” Amalinze told FIJ.

She said Emmanuel soon came up with excuses after he started the visa application, but she gave him the benefit of the doubt.

The visa agent stated that she smelt a rat when a client showed her that there was an email on his blueprint that was not his.

She said she asked Emmanuel why the email was there, but he said nothing. She also asked him to let her know if Canada had denied her clients visas, but he said nothing. He only collected more money and gave more excuses.

“In October, I got him arrested and detained at the Lagos State Police Command. He pleaded, saying he would start paying up the money in January. But since January, he has paid only N200,000 out of N8 million,” she lamented.

“I called him and his wife, but they gave excuses. Now, I am hiding. People are coming for my head. Yet, he is stalking me and monitoring my movements.

Amalinze said Emmanuel told the Inspecting Police Officer (IPO) at the police command that he owed her money while they were questioning him, and she expected him to pay her based on that premise.

“I wrote a petition to the EFCC in January, but they did nothing. I do not know what to do. People are on my neck,” she said.

When FIJ called Adelodun to confirm the issue, he declined to comment.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he said.
