“He was then trailed to a location within Yahe in Yala LGA, where he was eventually apprehended,” he said.

Since this is not the first time a Cameroonian is caught in related malpractices at the Nigerian borders, the Cross River state comptroller took this opportunity to warn other migrants to be mindful of fraudulent activities while in the country.

Given that these migrants do not falsify these documents by themselves but through collaboration with promoters of such fraudulent acts, the Comptroller also warned youths and community leaders, especially those within the border areas, to desist from collaborating with illegal migrants.
