A Nigerian man of God, pastor Ibrahim, 44, is behind prison walls in Mzuzu for issuing a false declaration on a Malawi passport application form, a conduct which is contrary to section 21 of the penal code.

crime (2)Two Malawians, Thomas Chitsulo and village headman Mbondolo, have also been jailed for aiding the Nigerian to get a Malawian passport.

According to information at hand the two convinced the Nigerian pastor how easy it is for foreigners to fill immigration forms as Malawians.

Northern region immigration media relations officer Blackwell Lungu told Malawi24 that the trio was nabbed on Wednesday last week by immigration officials.

“The magistrate has just sentenced them to 18 months imprisonment with hard labour for doing that,” said Lungu.

He went on to sound a warning to Malawians on the dangers of aiding foreigners in such cases saying they are a threat to national security.

“As Malawians, let’s not sell our country to foreigners with money by aiding them in cases like these. It’s a threat to our national security,” he warned.

The two Malawians hail from village headman Mbondolo, traditional authority Malenga Mzoma in Nkhatabay district. Immigration officials have since confirmed that the Nigerian pastor will be deported after serving his sentence.
