Nigerian Jailed For Lying About Marital Status On UK Visa Application

nigerian visa applicant jailed lying marital status

A Special Offences court in Ikeja on Tuesday sentenced a Nigerian UK visa applicant Kolawole Whesus Viyon to 3 years behind bars for lying about his marital status.

The convict who was given an option of N300K fine that must be paid within 24 hours committed the offence with one Akerele Olaronke on the 13th of December 2016.

Viyon and his fleeing accomplice were handed over to the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) by some British High Commission officials in 2016 for giving false information in their visa application forms.

  1. Men & women struggling to survive gets adequate punishment or unfair ones for offences, while the almighty POLITICIANS get away with ANYTHING. Even after whatever they get away with, we still see them in big big attires & being invited to parties here & there. They are mini God’s, aren’t they? Living on money stolen from the poor men & women struggling.

    Even, if articles upon articles are written by activists, NOTHING gets done. Most likely mine is also a waste of time.

    Bhuari is indeed fighting corruption.

    Instead of these corruption fighting can we not just have things like:

    Good roads
    Good hospitals
    Good schools
    Electricity
    Water
    Creation of employment(employment is by who you know & not by qualification)

    If we can have all these basics, most people will prefer to stay in Nigeria and stop lying to apply for visas to leave Niger by all means.
