Cameroonian midfielder Marcel Wamba Kepdep has been arrested in Mauritius following an attempt to illegally obtain a Mauritian passport.
The 27-year-old midfielder is believed to have approached people for having a real fake Mauritian passport.
It is believed that there is a network that is trying to sell Mauritian passports to foreigners with African footballers as the major target, according to the Mauritius’ Central Criminal Investigation Division (CCID).
The document would be true, but with a false name and probably the footballer’s photo. But it did not go as planned.
Marcel is currently in custody at Alcatraz after being provisionally charged.
