UK Visa Applicant Bags Three Years For Lying About Marital Status

UK Visa

An Ikeja Special Offences Court on Tuesday sentenced a UK visa applicant, Kolawole Viyon, to three years imprisonment for going false information about his marital status.

The Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offended Commission had arraigned Viyon for allegedly lying about his marital status.

Justice Mojisola who gave the ruling, said the accused person was guilty as charged.

Following a plea bargain entered into with the prosecution, the judge, however, gave Viyon option of N.3m fine.

"Following the defendant's guilty plea, he is hereby convicted accordingly. The terms of the plea bargain agreement are hereby adopted as the sentence of this court and the judgment thereof.

" He is hereby sentenced to three years imprisonment or the fine imposed," the judge said.

The judge, however, noted that if the fine was not paid within 24 hours, "Viyon will have to mandatorily serve his prison term."
