The Nigeria federal government has raised an alarm that some dubious persons are extorting money from unsuspecting football enthusiasts who want to travel to Russia for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.In a statement, the Minister of Youth and Sports Barrister Solomon warned football fans and the public, in general, to be wary of ticket racketeers who have promised to procure World Cup tickets for football lovers and supporters in exchange for huge sums of money.Barrister Dalung said that such people have no authority to secure visas for anyone as the World Cup organizers have simplified the process for football fans."It has come to the knowledge of the federal government that there is some form of racketeering going on with the acquisition of tickets for the FIFA World Cup. I wish to warn the general public against giving in to any offer from any quarter promising you World Cup tickets or visas in exchange for money.
