Dozens of applicants, who spoke to Per second News on Monday in Lagos, said they were scheduled to participate in the LoveWorld Festival of Music and Arts in Johannesburg.
The applicants alleged that an official of the Embassy instructed them to forward their applications only through their syndicates in Lagos or in Abuja.
``The official told us that our applications will not be treated except for applications submitted by one Dupe Tubo in Lagos and one Jacinta Aideyan in Abuja.
``He claimed that the two persons are members of the Christ Embassy Church in both locations,’’ they alleged.
Mr Kennedy Chimaobi, a spokesperson for the group of visa applicants revealed that most of the traveling agencies do process each application between N50,000
and N55,000, while the syndicates process the same application between N90,000 and N120,000.
The embassy did not respond to text messages from this media office.
