Fake news website vanguardng.local-reports.com tried to make people believe Donald Trump signed an executive order allowing visa-free travel to the United States by Nigerian citizens. The first paragraphs of the article read:
The United States President, Donald Trump has signed an executive order to allow all Nigeria nationals travel to the United States without visas.
The new order, serving as a change in visa policy for Nigerians traveling to the United States, would permit them stay in the U.S for a maximum period of 180 days for Tourism or Business purposes only. Stay over 180 days would therefore require a visa.
The hoax article is clearly inspired by a rash of other visa-free travel hoaxes that have been making the rounds since the inauguration of President Donald Trump, exploiting the hopes and fears of many people to gain a few clicks on a website.
