In a joint investigation with the Premium Times, the BBC has unearthed that the owner of a company arranging Nigerian travel visas from across the world has been accused of money laundering and fraud in Nigeria that is linked to another company.
The company arranging visas was appointed by the Nigerian government.
As such, there is no suggestion of wrongdoing by the visa-processing company. While the accusation of fraud and money laundering has been levelled against the other company, the allegations have not been found to have any relation to the visa business management.
Mahmood Ahmadu and Drexel Tech were charged by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] on three counts of money laundering and two counts of fraud.
The visa company headed by Ahmadu – Online Integrated Solutions [OIS] – has stated on its official website that it is present as well as conducting business on behalf of the Government of Nigeria in 25 major cities worldwide in India, Malaysia, Germany, China, UK, USA, Nigeria, UAE, Italy, Lebanon, South Africa, France, Netherlands, and Canada.
As per the BBC, Online Integrated Solutions proclaims itself to be a “specialist Nigerian visa and passport application agency” that provides expedited “hitch-free travel” to global destinations in partnership with diplomatic missions across the world.
