US Banned School Cert Holder For Life; Claiming To Be An Engineer

A Nigerian, Julius Olawale Oluwagbenro, who allegedly posed as an engineer among others lies to enable him get American Visa, has been slammed with a life ban by American Embassy

According to reports, 46 year-old Oluwagbenro confessed that his attempt to get a visa at the American Embassy on Tuesday was his fourth. He had thrice been rejected, but this fourth time got him a life ban.

Oluwagbenro allegedly told the Embassy that he attended University of Lagos (UNILAG), Akoka, where he studied Electrical Electronics and claimed to have once worked with Procter and Gamble. Oluwagbenro also claimed that he was going to the US for the burial of his uncle, who died of cancer in New York. He then further lied that he was presently working with Unilever as an engineer, with a monthly salary of N657,000. Recovered from him are some documents believed to be fake.

One of the documents is a police letterhead, stating that Oluwagbenro had a damaged passport and that the Embassy should, “kindly render any assistance he may require”. Another document is a First Bank statement, showing that Oluwagbenro had N6.2 million in his account. The item which, however, nailed Oluwagbenro was the phone number of the contact person he was supposed to meet in America.

The Embassy discovered that the phone number of the contact person had been used for over 190 applicants. While Oluwagbenro’s documents showed that the contact person lives in Brooklyn, New York, the owner of the number lives in Chicago. While confessing, Olawagbenro said;

“The truth is that I wasn’t the person that filled my visa form. My agent did. I was not even aware of most of the information he filled on the form. I sell cars in Ibadan.
