Nigerians arrested in Germany over Fake Marriages



Three Nigerians; one man and two women along with, two German women have been arrested following the raid of 41 homes and offices in Germany’s capital Berlin, Fox reports.

Police said they searched the properties because they linked to a gang suspected of arranging fake marriages in order to make it easier for Nigerians to come to Europe.

The officers seized their passports, European Union residency permits, cell phones, and storage devices.

German Federal Police Spokesman, Jens Schobranski, said the suspects detained are a 50-year-old Nigerian man, two Nigerian women aged 46 and 50, and two German women aged 55 and 64.

They are accused of selling certificates to Nigerian men documenting fake marriages with German and Portuguese women in more than 70 cases, charging up to 13,000 euros (₦5,577,593) each time.

      Apparently. Since BN has chosen to be selective and biased with their posting of stories and comments, swallowing harmless comments while they leave comments by a ‘sex trader’ littered everywhere… People have migrated to SDK and instablog

      Leave them let them be forming senior mamas … from the lingering technical issues on this website to the sluggish pace of carrying current stories to the very bad editing and poorly written mostly incomprehensible sentences and then the hoarding or deliberate discarding of comments … the bar has been set low on everything on bellanaija … uche used to be better than this
      To be fair, bellanaija is more lifestyle and events than gossip and controversies and they have done and still doing a good job at it

      Plus the recession hit people really hard, data is bae right now. So posts on BN are getting less and less clicks. Can’t you see that their marketing strategies have changed, even the page layout has changed too. BN is desperate right now

      People have deserted this blog because ass licking BN are deciding what comments we read.People are on strike because celebrities ass licking BN is limiting freedom of speech instead of trying to extend it and that this happens in an authoritarian way.People have migrated to other blogs because BN were treating their followers like jobless Children,the last time I checked BN followers are mature and educated people [email protected] in chief of bellanaija,I have to tell you that you have killed this blog by restricting our room for exercising our freedom of speech.Freedom of speech if it means anything,it means the freedom to criticise and oppose.I think you are abusing your power and I find it hard to believe that you have chosen to d ride and ass lick these celebrities.If you cannot distinguish between a personal opinion and what would be considered abusive comments perhaps you should take a journalism course.Although you have the right to balance between enabling people to express themselves while maintaining a safe and respectful environment but not in a disrespectful way.You can’t pick and choose which types of freedom you want to defend.Being disrespectful to people’s opinions/Deleting people comments/withholding people’s comments or being biased to when it comes to some certain celebrities we don’t agree with it.Thanks

    It seems BN is not sure who it’s representing. They want bland unconstructive comments. I posted a comment under that ogun governor post, it was posted 24hrs later. Guess they aren’t bored of intellectual discourse. What made BN were the likes of Atoke, Adeola at the helm of editing and articles, commenters like socially awkward, bleed blue and mind me say Bruno and great articles from Isio, chef fregz and dooney’s kitchen. Bezoz from Amazon said if you are not striving to be better, you are already past your prime. You can’t compete with Linda or SDK and not want to publish great articles or release gutter language, you have to choose one or the other.

      Arrgh don’t mind them … either the moderators take coffee breaks every 15mins or the ‘auto-discard and auto-approve after a geologice era’ feature is turned on … their blatant obstinacy is outrageous! I understand the mixed feelings of exasperation and responsibility sometimes to correct a fellow commenter or correct a writer of an article or contribute to a message etc and after painstakingly putting down a comment, bellanaija in their significant ‘class’ and ‘impeccable’ discretion disapproves … is there no disclaimer attached?

    Honestly i am so disappointed in Bellanaija,i still come here for old times sake, when this place was fun, intellectually stimulating and classy. How does one have a good thing and watch it diminish in value and worth? it still beats me. is it time, money, energy, drive that is no longer available for Uche and the team?
