Yes, we have heard of cases where a field investigation takes place, including the visa beneficiary's home. Sounds like it is a rare event, and there must be significantly suspicious circumstances (say that x3 fast!) for such an investigation to be ordered.

Happens when a case is in AP at the consulate.. more often they will ask neighbors, friends, relatives or the local police / gossip questions... this is very unlikely to happen before an initial visa interview...

earlier this week the consulate called both of us as well as my ex, my fiances mother, and her boss to verify my employment in the country...

It's rare, but yes it does happen, as been mentioned usually (but not always) after the interview, and in "high risk" countries, of which Nigeria is one. They would go to the beneficieries home as well as interviewing neighbours, work collegues and family.

Nigeria tends to pick couples that they have doubts of and will go to the area where the Nigerian person lives and ask around about the relationship status of the person. They conduct this type of query both before and after the interview. It really depends on when they have staff in the area. It happen most frequently with couples with a number of red flags where the person lives near Lagos or Abuja

This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.
