Eighteen Nigerians seeking to renew their passports have been defrauded in United Kingdom by racketeers.

The Chairman/CEO, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa on Tuesday said the victims had paid between £200 and £350 to the fraudsters in a bid to urgently renew and acquire the Nigerian passport.

Dabiri-Erewa, in a statement by the agency’s Head of Media and Public Relations, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, urged the Nigerian communities to always visit the mission on any matter concerning their stay in the UK and avoid patronizing touts.

She applauded the new Ambassador and his team in their quest to restore the mission’s credibility.
