Just because he needed a visa for his daughter,  a Nigerian Home Office worker by name Jelili Adesanya ‘married’ his own daughter to get her a British visa.

The funny thing is, this man is 54 year-old and because he has has lived in the UK for more than 30 years and holds a British passport, he wanted his daughter, her husband and their 4 sons to join him from Nigeria.

The story continuous, the father faked a wedding ceremony complete with a photograph of the happy ‘couple’ which helped fool immigration officials that his daughter, who goes by the name Karimotu Adenike, was really his wife.

Not ending there, her daughter, who is now Miss Adenike is believed to have aged herself by ten years on her wedding certificate to disguise the age gap with her father.

After all these stress, a whistle-blower tipped leaked their secret and as at now, they are under investigation…

What do you think?

Did the father do the right thing for his daughter? And, will you allow your wife or mother to do something like this all in the name of Visa?
