EFCC, Immigration to Jointly Tackle Passport Racketeering

The EFCC, and the Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, have resolved to join forces in tackling the menace of passport racketeering and other fraudulent practices that had bedevilled the process of obtaining the vital document.

This understanding was the highpoint of discussion when the Executive Chairman EFCC, Mr. Abdulrasheed Bawa and the Acting Comptroller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service, Mr. Idris Isah Jere, met behind closed doors at the EFCC Headquarters in Jabi, Abuja.
