A 72-year-old woman identified as Angela has been left devastated after her Nigerian lover, CJ, 27, was denied visa by the United Kingdom.
Angela was reported to have met CJ three months earlier on Facebook. She took a trip to Nigeria for wedding where they met for the first time, face to face.
Angela who insisted that CJ is her soulmate revealed that she has spent over £20,000 visiting him in Nigeria and processing his visa into UK.
Angela, a grandma who has six children was devastated yet again when CJ was denied visa into the United Kingdom but she stated that their love remains solid despite the over 4,000 miles between them.
Angela who is a retired taxi driver from Dorchester, Dorset, said:
“CJ is the most caring man any woman could want to be with. He makes me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world. I know in my heart we belong together and we won’t stop fighting until we can be together as husband and wife. We won’t let this break us.”
Speaking of her third husband and young lover, CJ, Angela continued: “After the wedding, I found it hard leaving CJ. I knew I’d see him again soon but my family visa application was rejected. I was so determined to get him a visa I hired lawyers to fight for us. I’ve since visited him twice, in 2016 and 2017.
“We’ve spent a combined £20,000 trying to see each other. I’ve used my savings and he has gradually paid me back half. He is six years younger than my oldest grandchild. But I couldn’t help falling for him.”
She added: “When I first told my son Malcolm about CJ, he was worried it might be a scam, so he checked him out online. After seeing how squeaky-clean his social media was, he felt he was genuine. They could all see how happy I was.”
The couple are however betting on a last hope that CJ will be allowed into UK next year on a student visa.
