The ex-husband of the British grandmother who married a 27-year-old Nigerian man believes she’s being scammed by her new husband who’s she trying to help to get into the UK
Earlier this week, Angela Nwachukwu who met her now husband CJ after he added her on Facebook, and married him just two months later, spoke of her heartbreak after CJ, who is 45 years her junior, was denied a visa to join her in the UK.
Her ex-husband, Donald Neate, 71, who was in a relationship with Angela for five years, believes his ex-wife is being ‘scammed’ by her husband, describing her as ‘gullible’.
The former lorry driver told Mail Online: ‘We separated 18 years ago and haven’t had any contact since.
‘The first time I knew about it was when I read the papers. She has been scammed by a man who just wants to get into the country.’
‘She has done it now and will have to deal with the consequences,’ he said.
Ever since Angela Nwachukwu got married to CJ, she has spent over £20,000 of her life savings on his visa applications and visiting him in Nigeria, but authorities will not allow him into the UK.
The grand mother of six who has sons aged 50, 47 and 43, is now planning to help CJ come next year on a student visa to enable him to study his Masters in computing.
