Another Nigerian student arrested during sham marriage in the UK

28year old Nigerian student Louis Esene and his 22 year old 'bride' were caught during their bogus wedding when the registrar noticed they were uncomfortable with each other.

From UK Daily Mail
A bogus bride was caught out because she 'flinched' when her phoney husband-to-be touched her knee in a register office. Emilia Ginova, 22, was jailed today for posing as a blushing bride ready to walk up the aisle with her groom.
But a court heard Ginova had only first seen Nigerian student Louis Esene on the day of the service - and was being paid £3,000 to take part in the sham marriage. She was caught out by an eagle-eyed registrar who spotted her shocked reaction when Esene, 28, reached out to touch her leg.
Registration officer Donna Davies said: 'The groom tried to touch the bride’s knee but she looked very uncomfortable. She flinched and there was no interaction at all. I knew it was a scam.'

The marriage was stopped - and the pair were both arrested at the register office in Pontypridd, South Wales.

It was later revealed that Esene wanted to stay in Britain because his visa had run out.
The court was told a friend recruited Ginova - who is a Slovakian-born Roma - and was four months pregnant by another man at the time of the wedding.

Esene and Ginova pleaded guilty to conspiracy to facilitate a breach of immigration law.

And the beat goes on!!!!!!!!!! The Nigerian government please take note. This is as a result of your neglect of your citizens, citizens that would rather risk arrest than go back to their own country!! SMH!

Linda, stop giving the impression Nigerians are the only ones involved, Daily Mail is just making a big deal out of NOTHING, a good number of foreigners in Europe, Canada and the United Sates got their resident permit through bogus marriage. Living abroad with 'papers' is hell. They are not criminals, they just want to survive. Who nor go, nor know.

Hiss some people are so dull. With the rate at which these arrangY marriages are been found out these days I really don't get how these desperadoes can't just plan these things well. Why can't they meet days before and hang out to get comfortable and just act a lovey dovy scene for just a few mins in the registry. If you can't get it done dont do it at all. Idiots.

They are both fools. If he has 3000pounds to pay for a sham marriage why not comeback to nigeria and reapply for a visa. Is it an achievement to leave in the UK. And didn't the girl know she was dealing with a black dude before collecting the money. She now blew up the sham with her reaction

The guy should just come bck home in shame after the jail term. Do people still do these things??? Just wondering

Nigerians in the UK,please stop this act.Once you conclude your masters,come back home.The UK is already filled with too many immigrants than the system can accommodate.Stop disgracing yourselves and family members please.
As for other Nigerians planning to travel abroad to further their education ,look towards other countries not the UK especially if you intend to stay back.My two cents...

Na wa!!!! The guy has over £5,000 to spend on illegal marriage but he can't take that £5,000 come back to Nigeria and try to use that degree he just earned to help himself. He just wasted his parents money and his brains on this crap. Oh well, maybe jail time ωïll help him be innovative. I'm sure with all the quiet time he'll have, apart from the time he'll be watching his a$$ to prevent himself from being someone else's b*#ch ωïll help him reflect on the stupid decision he just made. #nopityforthesucka

The girl fucked up big time. She collected money but couldn't act along just for few mins. Some pple here asked why the guy touched her laps?? Its obvious they don't know certains things about court marriage. In some cases you are meant to kiss ur wife because she is ur wife. Touching of lap is nuttin. U will hug and kiss her and exchange rings. The girl was just foolish. Also its not only nigerians that do these biko. White pple do same too to stay in better countries like australia and canada. Am tired of reading on this blog that nigerians are bad pple, white pple are more bad and corrupt. You need to travel out to see the kind of crimes white pple comit. Nigerians should stop talking bad about their country white pple are more corrupt than u are. Stop all these neo colonial mentality.

The daily mail is the most racist newspaper in the UK also it targets Nigerians even when there are many polish migrants, russian migrants, american migrants etc who are doing the exact same thing and worse things as well. The russian mob in the UK is involved in drugs, prostitution, guns etc. Rather than talk about such vices the daily mail keeps hating on Nigerians.

Ofcourse i don't support what this guy has done but white people cover up their shit,Black people open up their wide mouth and spit nonsense. White people do more shits than this,EVEN THE PAKI'S are experts when it comes to bogus marriages. Why do you keep on denting your country all the time. You shout Nigeria and make it look like a stormy place,foreigners travels to Nigeria to steal and eat the fats in Nigeria and end up denting your country.They publish articles to world about Nigeria and the whole world starts to dent Nigeria again.There is no better place in the world even Britain is f**kd so the rest of the world.Even the govt of Nigeria makes it worse,while the poor suffers.I bet they can't even bad mouth China,paki's or indians like that,they would give it back to them in full force.But Nigerians are super weak, Nigeria Gov are super weak they are waste just like wee and poo. You all know Nigerians are on the Top list for daily mail,Daily mail is ready to finish that country,they don't like blacks especially Nigerians,so you should know now.

I dont blame Nigeria who do desperate things to live abroad, our RULERS not Leaders should be ashamed of themselves.I only love Nigeria because it is my country. What is in Nigeria for one to be proud of? A country where there is no free and fair elections, where politicians loot recklessly, where lectures trade sex with female students for good grade, where armed robbers operate with impunity, where people kill and get killed and the killers are never caught, where suspects are beaten and burnt to death in the streets, where suspects are paraded on television, where the police carry out extrajudicial killings. A country of mediocres, where nothing is done on merit. A rich country with a frightening rate of unemployment, no good roads. No pipe-borne water supply. Public health care is virtually nil. There is no government in Nigeria. It is a couutry of self survival.

Arranging sham marriage is not that difficult Nigerians are screwing it up serious moni is involved all they need to do is practice with each other interact hang out for like two months to get a sort of chemistry going then approach the marriage registrar and do ur thing. this is simply business just like acting a movie and getting emotional with ur cast mate how hard is it

You r a bigger fool. What kind of visa will you apply for again after d expiration of a student visa?? Another student visa? To study what and what will it cost?? On what grounds will you be allowed to live there? Calculate all that and maybe it will make sense to you why he went for d £3k
Btw "leave" and "live" cannot be used interchangeably. Mumu!!!

shut up fool! If you wanna be analytic, then pretend you r smart whilst doing it. So you think with £5000 he's made in Naija. Let's say he uses £600 out of that amount to buy a ticket. A one her apartment in reasonable places in Abuja cost just about that balance left of the money! How about feeding? Transportation and probably "settling" people that r likely to assist him in getting a job? How about contingencies? Will he not buy suits and clothes to look presentable? So my dear, don't calculate that 5k like that. It can only afford rent! Of course he is wrong. But where is life much easier? Naija? Where poor people have no say? Abeg. Run your race and allow others run theirs.
