“He physically and emotionally abusǝd me in Nigeria for nine years” – Woman accused of dumping her husband in the UK responds
A young Nigerian woman, who was accused of abandoning her husband after he arrived in the UK, has shared her own side of the story.
YabaleftOnline earlier reported that the man in question is currently facing possible deportation in the UK after his wife revoked his dependency status.
It was alleged that the man sold all his belongings to sponsor his wife’s relocation to the UK for study in 2022, with the intention of joining her later with their children as her dependents.
Upon their arrival in the UK in October, he received a huge shock when his wife took the kids and their passports, and told him that their marriage was over.
As it stands, the man is presently stranded without a means to stay in the UK and has been given until January 2024 to leave the country, or he will be deported. ICYMI, read here
