 A 29-years-old Nigerian man studying in the UK, Jayeola Abiola,  has been jailed for 12 months over a sham marriage. The Hull University masters student needed to marry to stay in the UK, and that led him into paying a Portuguese woman, Vania Pinheiro-Fernandes, to be his bride.
Officers of the UK border agency had been tipped off by the Hull Registrar that the couple seemed to barely know each other when they were interviews at the rehearsal. On the wedding day, the UK border agency secretly filmed the cars, groom, bride and best man arriving outside the grand 19th century council town hall before arresting them.
It was revealed that Jayeola Abiola was in danger of being deported from UK because his visa was due to expire a few days after the marriage and that the bride gave them out when she used a fake name when they spoke to the registrar.
The bride purchased her wedding dress two hours before the marriage ceremony, and another Nigerian Student, a Leed law student, 25-years-old Ayodeji Abbis, was paid £1,000 to act as the best man. While Abiola Kumoye, 34, was paid £2,650 as part payment to arrange the sham marriage.
The groom has been sentenced to 12-months-imprisonment while the bride was given an 8-months-imprisonment; meanwhile the court adjourned sentence on the best man and the marriage fixer.

What  a  loss.  No marriage -  and most probably will be deported before  he  finishes  his Masters programme!

All for what? Constant electric and  water  supply.  Good  transport services, a job  paid  in pounds and, a flat/ house with no 'security bars'  on  the  doors or  windows.

But  he forgot  about the difficulties in getting all the above!  Masters or no Masters he  most  probably  would  have ended  up at the job centre  signing on and collecting benefits -  even though  I understand  his family  back  in Nigeria  most probably  would live  the 'high'  life  on the money  but  here the  money is nothing!

So Nigerians and  Asians ( the two biggest  culprits in scam marriages in  the UK) -  it does not pay to cheat and stop  spoiling it for genuine  Nigerians who come  to  the UK to study and leave when expected to!

Have a nice day.

It is unfair punishment for immigration violation.
No Briton will ever receive same treatment in Nigeria.

Don’t write him off as yet…. He is not on death row…..

I do not support what he did and at the same time you cannot compare his crime to the crimes committed against Nigerians by the British.

I can guarantee you one thing… he won’t come and knock at your door for help.
