  1. ...of course, they wanted to do their job of identifying the passport.

  2. in america or other western nations you went. did you put such on your eyes to get data capturing. dey put on mask for your face and they wil tell you...succesful....9ja babe..the blood stil dey flow in you..abegi

  3. That's because the photo they saw on your passport application form is different from the face you presented physically, after applying makeup, artificial eyelashes and artificial hair.

  4. You're lucky you didn't have to remove your mini mini-skirt! Onibaje!

    Sabi girl no suppose dey put lashes nah🤣

  6. The stupidity of some people self is beyond human comprehension! Did they ask you to remove it because it's you? Even Muslim women who are forbidden from revealing their facial appearance are asked to remove it when taking their picture at immigration office. Then who is this Charlatan to come to the social media and announce what happened to her? Even the law permits them to deny you issuance or renewal of your passport even if you have satisfied all requirements.
