A Nigerian man, Lukman Owolabi Ogunsuada, a 38-year- old visa applicant, has been sentenced to jail for presenting forged letter of invitation to the officials at the United States Embassy in Lagos to secure B1 and B2 Visa categories knowing fully well that the documents were not genuine.

The convict was jailed by Chief Magistrate N.A Layeni of the Lagos State Magistrates’ Court, Apapa. Ogunsuada was found guilty of the two-count charge bordering on forgery, preferred against him by the special fraud unit (SFU) of the police.

Magistrate Layeni sentenced the convict in count one of the charge to one year imprisonment or alternatively to a fine of N100, 000 and 200 hours community service or to a fine of N20, 000 in count two of the charge.
