The ex husband of now Mrs Nwachukwu, a 73 year old Woman who married a 27 year old Nigerian boy.
Mr DONALD NEATE , says his ex wife will “have to deal with the consequences” of her action at some point.
Neate who is 71 said she is quite gullible.
He said ex wife Mrs. Angela Nwachukwu has “got herself into a problem that she will have to deal with.”
Mrs Nwachukwu, from Weymouth, Dorset, is currently fighting for a visa for her new husband Mr Nwachukwu.
The duo who met on facebook three months ago after Mr Nwachukwu added her on Facebook and struck up a conversation got married just of recent.
However application for a visa to move to Britain to live together with his newly wedded wife has been refused even after retired taxi driver Mrs Nwachukwu has spent £20,000 on him, including lawyers to help with the visas and flights to visit him.
According to Mrs Nwachukwu her husband has already repaid £10,000 of the amount.
However her Ex Husband is not buying her idea of a younger man.
He said, “We separated 18 years ago and haven’t had any contact since,” he said.
The first time I knew about it was when I read the papers. She has done it now and will have to deal with the consequences.”
Mrs Nwachukwu said she couldn’t help but fall for her lover from Nigeria, when they started talking, and is devastated that their applications for visas have failed.
She said she had been left lonely and isolated after the breakdown of her marriage, six months before they met online.
One day she found a message and a friend request from Mr Nwachukwu, and couldn’t see the harm in striking up conversation.
She said: “He was so handsome, with big, brown eyes and a body to match. 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.
“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 proposed to her on Skype, and she gleefully accepted.
The pair wed in Lagos, and have since seen each other twice, as she has flown there to visit him.
Mr Nwachukwu has been denied a tourist visa to see his wife, and their applications have been turned down because it’s thought they won’t have financial backing.
Mrs Nwachukwu refuses to accept suggestions that the marriage is a scam.
She is convinced he will be able to get a student visa for a Masters degree in the UK.
British citizens can apply for a Family visa to move their partners to the UK.
The Home Office charges £1,464 for people applying from outside the UK to joining their partners or spouses, and nearly £1,000 for extensions.
Spouses applying to move to be with their partners have to prove they can support themselves and their partners, and they have to have been living with them for two years.
Partners will then be given permission to move for around two and a half years and should extend this after that time.
Mr Nwachukwu has to be able to show he can support himself or be supported to be granted a Marriage Visitor visa, by the rules of the Home Office.
Under the visa for visitors, the trip must be no longer than six months, and applicants should prove they will leave at the end.
