          Woman’s Fiancé Claims His Home in Nigeria Is Too Dangerous A Place For Her To Live


          February 8, 2019

          Josie, 64, says everyone in her life objects to her relationship with her fiancé, Victor, a Nigerian citizen who is 30 years her junior. She says they met online just over a year ago, and though they’ve never seen each other in person, they talk on the phone and video chat several times a day. Josie claims that Victor is the love of her life.
