Nigerian Groom Jailed For Arranging Marriage In Order To Stay Back In The UK

Nigerian Jayeola Abiola, 27, and his Portuguese “bride” Vania Fernandes, 29, have been jailed for their part in a sham wedding ceremony.

It turns out that Abiola’s student visa was about to expire, so he and Vania decided to get married in an attempt to stay in the UK.
Unfortunately they were arrested just before the wedding was due to start last November.

Immigration staff were alerted by a registrar who became suspicious that Abiola and Fernandes,  appeared to know very little about each other during a pre-marriage interview.
Vania had even bought her wedding dress, tiara, wedding veil, and flowers dress two hours before the  ceremony.

So Border Agency secretly filmed a wedding video of the cars, groom, bride and best man arriving outside the grand 19th century council town hall before arresting them at the door.

Abiola received 12 months and Fernandes eight months.

    I still don't understand this madness about living in the UK. Really it's not by force. The amount these illegals pay the legals to marry them just for papers. Plus money for wedding legal fees-especially when immigration is on your back etc. I just don't get why they cannot just channel that money elsewhere. Even if it's opening a shop back in their home country.

    These illegals end up not working sef or doing shitty job…or sometimes dodgy work so I don't get why anyone would want to cough up money and go through this hell for papers. If na Yankee e for make sense small…..but Jand?! Urrrghh!

    People with more money than sense.
