Chukuwuebuka Kingsley Izuagwu, a suspected Nigerian drug dealer has been apprehended and remanded in custody by the East London Magistrate’s Court, South Africa on Thursday, November 19.

He is expected back for a follow-up court appearance on December 7, 2020 to answer to drug dealing charges

The 31-year-old drug dealer was arrested in North End, East London, on Monday, 16 November 2020.

Izuagwu was arrested by the Hawks’ South African Narcotics Enforcement Bureau (SANEB) assisted by the local Crime Intelligence Gathering team following a sting operation that was conducted over four days from the 12 to 16 November aimed at disrupting the drug dealing scourge in the area.

In the first controlled exchange, the team purchased R1000 worth of Tik which Izuagwu supplied from his North End flat. This was followed by two other orders worth a combined value of R10 000 which he delivered at Esplanade beachfront on two different occasions. The team swooped in on the target when he delivered the third consignment, weighing 20 grams and valued at about R5000-00 at the same beachfront area.

Izuagwu was then taken to his flat where a search uncovered about 260 grams of Tik valued at R 65 000. A small electronic scale, cell phones, an elephant tusk as well as over R50 000 in cash were seized for further investigation.

US removes reciprocity fees for Nigerian visa applicants

Published

on

The United States has removed the reciprocity fee imposed on visa applications from Nigeria.

The fee was imposed in August 2019 on applicants whose non-immigrant visa applications are granted. The US Consulate at the time said it was “reciprocating” the extra visa fee the Nigerian government charges American citizens. The US consulate argued that while the US charged Nigerians $160 for visa application, its citizens seeking Nigerian visa were paying $110 extra. As a result, the federal government reduced visa application fees for US citizens.

In a statement released on Friday, December 4, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the reciprocity fee will no longer be effected from December 3, 2020.

The statement signed by Ferdinand Nwonye who is the spokesman of the Ministry reads in part

“The ministry of foreign affairs wishes to inform that the United States government has removed all visa reciprocity fees for Nigerian citizens seeking visas to the United States.

The positive development is in line with the removal of excess visa application, processing and biometric fees for United States citizens applying for Nigerian visas by the Nigerian government.

The United States government has therefore eliminated reciprocity fees for Nigerian citizens with effect from December 3, 2020.”
