A 72-year-old British woman, Angela Nwachukwu, had her heart broken following the United Kingdom immigration service’s refusal to approve her 27-year-old husband, CJ Nwachukwu‘s visa application.
CJ Nwachukwu, a certified computer engineer residing in Imo State, Nigeria was denied a UK visa for the second time.
The couple met via Facebook and hit it off, but the duo didn’t meet until Angela’s trip to Nigeria.
Speaking to The Sun, a disappointed Angela said she has already spent £20,000 on trips to Nigeria and trying to get him into the UK.
‘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 also insists they both ‘belong together’, despite the artificial distance created by the unsuccessful UK visa application.
CJ is also believed to be six years younger than her oldest child but that has not deterred her.
‘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,’ she said.
‘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.
‘Our only hope now is that CJ will be allowed to come next year on a student visa to study his Masters in computing.
‘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.’
