It’s either a case of love being truly blind for one party, or the other party being irredeemably undiscerning.
Whichever way, Nigeria’s name is certainly set to be mentioned in all the wrong places, and for wrong reasons, again.
He is 27, she is 72.
They are in love, and married; brought together by Facebook.
The grandma mother of six children has travelled to Nigeria thrice, to be united with her husband. 
But her youngest child is 43. The two others, 50 and 47, all old enough to be his parents.
Three attempts down the line, the UK Home Office has refused to give him visa to enable the dashing young Nigerian move in with his grandma-wife. 
The Home Office suspects foul play, the grandma is in love. She says he is the sweetest thing on earth.
The report, exclusively captured by the UK Sun newspaper, is here reproduced.
PRICE OF LOVE
Anguish for gran-of-six, 72, as Nigerian husband CJ, 27 has his visa rejected AGAIN despite spending her £20k life savings trying to get him to the UK

The pensioner wed her third husband – 45 years her junior – just three months after he added her on Facebook and sparks flew

Angela, 72, had met CJ, 27, just three months earlier after he added her on Facebook.

Her trip to his home country of Nigeria for their wedding was the first time they met face to face.

But Angela insists CJ is her soulmate and since they married has spent £20,000 visiting him and trying to get him into the UK.

The gran of six was ­devastated when CJ was denied a visa but says their marriage is solid despite the 4,000 miles between them.

Angela, a retired taxi driver from Dorchester, Dorset, says: “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.”

Angela had been single for six months following a 16-year relationship when she was contacted out of the blue by CJ.

Angela says: “After my relationship ended, I felt lonely. We had become more like friends than partners so we had decided to split.

“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.”

She knew the age gap might be frowned upon but she could not help falling for the computer engineer, who lives in the city of Owerri.

Angela, who has sons aged 50, 47 and 43, says: “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.”

Just a month after they started messaging in February 2015, Angela’s long-distance lover popped the question over Skype.

Angela says: “I was so taken aback when he asked me to marry him. I thought he was joking. But he told me he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me.

“Of course, I said yes. He was beaming at me with such a big smile on his face. Knowing I made him that happy was all the reassurance I needed. There was such an amazing chemistry between us.”

Angela started planning her trip to Nigeria and bought a stunning blue dress for the wedding ceremony, which CJ had arranged for the following month.

Angela says: “CJ had planned the whole day and had bought us both wedding rings. Sadly, none of my family could make it as it was such short notice. But I felt happy to have their blessings.

“The six-hour plane journey felt like a lifetime. I was worried CJ might not like me in person. But the moment I saw him waiting for me I knew I’d made the right decision. I gave him a hug and he kissed me.

“We’d originally planned to wait until the wedding night to consummate our relationship but we couldn’t keep our hands off each other. CJ was so loving and passionate.”

In April 2015 Angela wed CJ in front of his friends and family at a register office in Lagos.

Angela says: “The ceremony was so beautiful and CJ had organised it all perfectly. It was the happiest day of my life.

“I felt so lucky — but it was bittersweet because I knew I had to go back to England. The two weeks I was there flew by.”

Angela was shocked when her visa application for CJ was rejected and he was denied entry to the UK.

She says: “The Visa was rejected because officials didn’t think we had financial backing, as I was retired.

“Over the following months I tried again and again to appeal the decision. It broke my heart every time it was denied. He wasn’t even allowed to visit me on a tourist visa.

“I’d waited so long for true love — and now I’d finally found it, it was being kept from me.”

She adds: “I know there are scam marriages and they get hold of older people like me. But they find out if you have money first.

“I told CJ from the beginning I haven’t any money. But he told me, ‘It’s you I want’.

“I know it goes on and that’s why I was so upfront. I have helped CJ financially but he has always paid me back.”

Since marrying, Angela has visited her husband in Nigeria twice, once in March 2016 for three weeks and once in January 2017 for three weeks.

She still hopes to be permanently united with him.

“I’m hoping to go to Africa later this year to visit him and I’m counting down the days until I can see him again.”

IS HER MARRIAGE A SHAM LIKE MINE?

JULIE DAG, 55, from Bournemouth, met Lamin Sidibeh, 41, in Gambia, West Africa, in 2007.

Against her better judgment, Julie wed her younger lover in what she later found out was a sham marriage.

It caused her heartbreak – and cost Julie £20,000.

She says: “I’ve never thought of myself as gullible. Years of holiday repping made me fully aware of all the scams out there.

“Lamin was very persuasive, even when I had returned home to England.

“He was constantly messaging and calling, so I started to believe his feeling were true.”

After marrying in 2008, their honeymoon was spent filling in visa applications. But having gained indefinite leave to stay in the UK, Lamin then left her.

Julie has some advice for anyone unsure about the motives of an overseas lover.

She says: “Suggest moving over there and see what he says.

“If they are interested, it shouldn’t matter where you live, as long as you’re together.

“It may be difficult to hear but read other people’s stories and look at how often this is happening. Older women are attractive to these men as they have more security, more money, properties and divorce settlements.

“Finally, wait a long time. If you think he is The One, don’t rush into anything.

“Go over there and spend an extended amount of time together in his country.”

Most commentators in the news website consider the grandma silly, and hope she will come to her senses soon.

However, some others support her, and wish her the best.

Some of the comments are reproduced below:

1.Loneliness due to Western Cultures in many western countries impacting women above 35 years old

2. Women above 35 hunting every year in Senegal, Gambia, Ghana. Known in Carribean as  SANKI PANKI

3. A poor citizen in his country lure by easy money means temptation

Results :  blame western people, nobody in western country do pay attention to these women so they are right to look elsewhere.  The guy is free to accept or deny…Busy easy money dreaming of travelling….Imagine

SA ABZSome sense by UK Immigration. Hopefully she doesn’t loose all her money.”

I bet this started with one of those e mails where his uncle died and he was left with 10 billion and will give you 10%. and before you know it the whole family will be living in the UK.

Id run this on a long as possible love… Once he gets that marriage certificate he will own half of everything you have and then he will off as fast as his feet will carry him to find his next street paved with gold.

Though,marriage like this may work out. I know a couple in Canada ,the husband from Nigerian ,been living together for 10 year’s with two beautiful sons.they met online .

But for this particular marriage,I can guarantee you its a fake. Once the guy knows his free to reside in the UK, he will walk.

Hope the woman is reading this.

Common! Respect is the key.Don’t always believe what you are reading about Africa. While some are living with AIDS, that doesn’t mean we all have it.

I just don’t understand how a woman of her age can seriously believe he is really into her!! Maybe I’m a cynic and who knows, maybe it is true love but I seriously doubt it!

How can women like her be taken in by young men like him?  One look in the mirror would ring alarm bells for me if I looked like that (which thank heaven I don’t!) and a young man took a shine to me!! All he is after is getting into Britain!

Get a grip you silly silly woman!

What must your family really think of you. They are probably just humouring you for now but are worried sick that your mind has gone.

Scam or no scam, it’s amazing that terrorists can come in left right and centre without anyone even noticing but if someone tries to get a visa, the government will say “but we don’t think you can afford it. By the way thanks for the £20,000.”
