Nigerians having a laugh at our expense!

Posted: December 11, 2010 in Law & Disorder

A Czech bride and Nigerian groom were jailed for staging a sham marriage in a bid to beat UK immigration rules.

At Burnely Crown Court, Idowu Komolafe, a 34-year-old Nigerian national, was jailed for 21 months for perjury and assisting unlawful immigration.

Kveta Pokosova, a 45-year-old Czech national, was jailed for 16 months for bigamy, perjury and assisting unlawful immigration. Both had pleaded guilty to charges at an earlier court hearing.

The couple were arrested by our officers after it emerged that Pokosova was paid £3,000 to go through with the wedding ceremony at St Peter’s Church in Accrington on 3 June 2009.
