A NIGERIAN immigrant who took part in a sham marriage so he could stay in the UK has been jailed.

Samuel Olufemi James wed a young Portuguese woman who had been recruited by a sinister “fixer” in a square in Lisbon notorious for prostitution and drug-taking.

James, 33, admitted that, following the wedding, he never saw his “bride” again.

The UK Border Agency uncovered the scam and fixer Oscar Prata, who had paid the young woman 2,000 Euros to marry James, was jailed. The woman was given a caution, as it was considered she had been targeted by Prata for her vulnerability.
