A 72-year-old retired cab driver, Angela Nwachukwu, has lamented the denial of visa to her Owerri, Imo State-based husband, CJ Nwachukwu.
Angela said she was frustrated because, since her marriage to CJ in April 2015, she had only been able to see him two times.
The pensioner, who is based in Dorchester, Dorset, has three children aged 50, 47 and 43, with many grandchildren. She has also been married twice and recently disengaged from a 16-year relationship.
In an interview with a United Kingdom-based tabloid, _The SUN_, she said she met CJ on _Facebook_ after the computer engineer sent her a message, complimenting her profile photo.
The grandma, however, lamented that since the marriage was consummated, CJ had been denied visa three times, saying she had spent over £20,000 visiting him and trying to get him into the UK.
She hopes to be permanently united with him in 2018 when she believes he will travel on a student visa for his master’s degree in computing.
