April 3rd, 2016 – Picture: Pakistani Man Caught Sneaking Into Nigeria Arrested In Lagos
NIS Comptroller General in Cross River state, Funke Adesuyi told Vanguard on Friday that a Pakistani man, Sahid Mahmood has been arrested by Immigration officials.
Adeuyi said the man was smuggled in a motorbike into Etung, a border community with Cameroon. He was said to have gone to Ikom from Etung and was making his way to Lagos before his apprehension.
Adeuyi said the man was arrested along with a Cameroonian accomplice, Nji Hagis Chi who said he met Sahid at the bus station in Ikom and decided to function as his guide to Lagos where he was going for an undisclosed reason.
“He was not found with anything incriminating but had enough hard currency on him to do anything he wanted to do so we are wary of his movement in Nigeria because he has no reason to be in this country” she added.
