- A Nigerian lady and her family borrowed huge sum of money and sold their property to travel abroad with the hope of making it
- While in the UK, trouble started when the lady realised that she would have to make an application to be able to work
- With creditors calling her family from abroad, school fees to pay, and bills of five children to take care of, she broke down
A woman (@gloriaotikor1) has narrated the story of a Nigerian family with five children who are currently stranded in the UK after they borrowed millions of naira, sold their house and car to process their relocation.
The family travelled to the UK based on the study visa of the mother of the home. On getting abroad, she realised that she would have to apply for a post-graduate visa to be able to work, which cost a lot of money.

According to the story, her creditors who borrowed her money have been calling from Nigeria, thinking she would be able to pay them back once she lands in the UK.

Mother flies her children to America
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a mother, @blackchocolatecovered, who travelled to America three years ago in search of greener pastures, was able to fly her two children to join her abroad.
The mother said the process was hard, but the trouble was all worth it. A video she shared on TikTok showed the moment the little kids were at the airport and about boarding their flight.
While on the aeroplane, they were filmed as they both had a lovely time. To show how she must have given a lot to the immigration process, the woman said: "Delay is not denial".
