SILENT BUT DANGEROUS: CUSTOM CG HAMEED ALI SECRETLY SPONSORS PEOPLE TO PROCESS VISAS IN SAUDI ARABIA WITHOUT IMMIGRATION KNOWLEDGE

Officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency  (NDLEA) at the Muritala Mohammed International Airport in Ikeja, Lagos have quizzed a National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) member who was found in possession of six Nigerian passports.

The Corp member identified as Abubakar Sayeed was arrested on Thursday, March 2 with the said passports on board an Ivoirien Airline from Burkina Faso to Lagos.

During interrogation, Sayeed told the NDLEA that he went to Saudi Arabia with the passports to go and process Visas for certain personalities , including the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs, Hameed Ali who had been surmoned by the Senate over unpopular policy on vehicle importation by his office.

After Sayeed’s arrest, the passports were collected from him and kept in the NDLEA exhibit room where the officials contemplated what next to do.

No sooner was the attention of the Nigerian Immigration Service drawn to the seizure than calls started getting to the NDLEA officials at the airport to release Sayeed, an indigene of Adamawa State.

A souce told Armadanews that “the suspect was released after pressure was mounted from above.”

Before the suapect’s release NDLEA officials at the Airport Command were working to establish his relationship with Ali and the others and why the suspect would go to Burkina Faso to process Saudi Arabia visa.

Immigration authorities are in the know of the incident but they pretend not to know because they have not been formally briefed. But NDLEA is trying to sweep it under the carpet.
