The Nigeria mission in Johannesburg, South Africa, has solemnly promise to do against all forms of cyber criminal activities, and to remain vigilant, including the fake website for passport applications.
Mr Abdukmalik Ahmed, Consul-General of Nigeria to South Africa, stated this in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday.
He observed that a red flag on a fake website for passport applications had been raised by the Nigerian mission in New York and promised to be on guard against such occurrence in Johannesburg, South Africa.

“All the same, the mission remains vigilant to uncover such untoward activities by cyber criminals.”
