Spread the news

The government of Seychelles has confirmed that it has placed a ban on Nigerian passport holders who want to visit the country for holiday purposes.

Recall that some Nigerians took to social media last week to alleged being denied visas for no tenable reasons by Seychelles.

According to Seychelles News Agency, the country’s vice-president, Ahmed Afif, said the ban is because of an increase in drug trafficking and fraudulent activities by Nigerians.

“We have seen a clear link between this with certain people from Nigeria. In the past two weeks, for example, 13 people coming from Nigeria have been arrested when entering Seychelles because they were carrying drugs into the country.

In one case, 62 Nigerians who said they were on holiday used false credit cards and the money was never credited to the accounts of these establishments.
