A British grand mother of six is devastated following her Nigerian husband’s inability to secure a visa to the UK after being denied for the third time.
72-year-old British grandmother,Angela Nwachukwu is devastated after her Nigerian husband’s inability to secure a visa to the UK.
Angela from Dorchester in Dorset, met CJ Nwachukwu, 27, on Facebook after he added her. They got engaged on Skype and when she visited him for the first time they ended up tying the knot.
According to the grand mother of six who has sons aged 50, 47 and 43, since they got married she has spent £20,000 visiting him and trying to get him into the UK but their marriage is solid despite the 4,000 miles between them.
“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.”
“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.
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.”
After being single for six months, I saw a gorgeous young man had sent me a friend request on Facebook.
I did wonder why he had added me but I accepted and he sent me a message telling me how lovely my profile photo was.
He was so handsome, with big, brown eyes and a body to match. I didn’t see the harm in striking up a conversation with him.
We chatted for hours about our families and hobbies. It was like we’d known each other for years. Before I knew it, we were messaging daily.
The only problem was he was 45 years younger and lived 4,000 miles away in Nigeria.”
But Angela said she couldn’t resist falling for the computer engineer, who lives in the city of Owerri, when things started going well for them.
“Despite our huge age gap, we got on really well. I couldn’t help it and began to develop feelings for him. I tried to stop myself.
He was six years younger than my oldest grandchild. But I couldn’t help falling for him.
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.
We started chatting on Skype and I’d get butterflies when I saw his face on the computer. After a few weeks, CJ told me he had feelings for me. I was so happy.”
A month after they started messaging and in February 2015, CJ popped the question over Skype and Angela accepted him. She came down to Nigeria and in April 2015, Angela and CJ tied the knot in front of his friends and family at a Lagos registry.
“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,” she said.
