Caught In The Act: Nigerian Man Arrested Moments Before He Says ''I Do'' To A Hungarian Woman In A Sham Marriage

This is the dramatic moment home office investigators put a stop to a sham marriage just minutes before the bride and groom exchanged their vows.
Nigerian Chinedu Amadi arrived at Leicester Registry Office to marry a complete stranger - Hungarian national Szilvia Basco-Porkolab, who donned a traditional white wedding gown for the occasion.
But unbeknown to them Home Office investigators who were tipped off by a suspicious registrar  and lay in wait in a side room for the pair to arrive.
These pictures show the moment the 'couple' were told they had been caught and were arrested.
Amadi, a Nigerian student, paid £5,000 to an unknown 'fixer' to arrange the bogus wedding with an EU national to allow him to stay in the UK.

After their arrest, investigators discovered Basco-Porkolab was involved in an earlier sham marriage to another Nigerian, Ikechukwu Egbe, at Greta Green in May 2011.
Basco-Porkolab, 38, living in Leicester, admitted two counts of conspiracy to breach immigration laws relating to sham marriages, and was jailed for 34 months.
Amadi, 27, of Livingstone Road, Gillingham, admitted a similar count and was jailed for 20 months.
Egbe, 34, of Narborough Road, Leicester, was convicted of one offence of conspiracy, and jailed for 30 months.
A fourth person, Rubin Durgos 39, admitted conspiracy, in the intended sham marriage of Amadi. She was to be the bride, before Basco-Porkolab stepped in at the last minute.
Durgos, a Hungarian, of Forest Road, Coalville, Leicestershire, was jailed for 20 months.


  1. Why are they wasting their taxpayers money to keep the Nigerians in jail? Instead of them to send them straight back here so they will roast small for disgracing Naija.

  2. Igbo people are always bringing discrace to this country.
