Nigerian woman admits to using someone else’s passport

Pamela Amaka Mmakogu, a 30-year-old citizen of Nigeria, pleaded guilty Wednesday to misusing a passport in an attempt to gain entry into the United States.

Mmakogu was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara to time served.

Mmakogu was a passenger on a bus at the Peace Bridge when she was accused of presenting a Canadian passport that belonged to another person.
