Nigerian pastor faces 5 years in US prison for allegedly fixing fake marriages for green card

Posted by on October 22, 2021 — Drop A Comment


The pastor and his accomplices allegedly arranged at least 60 fraudulent marriages.

A Nigerian pastor resident in the United States has been indicted for conspiracy to commit marriage fraud, and visa fraud.

Joshua Olatokunbo Shonubi made his first court appearance on Thursday, October 21, 2021 accused of leading a scheme to fraudulently obtain permanent resident status for foreign nationals by arranging marriages to U.S. citizens.

The indictment said the 50-year-old engaged in the fraudulent scheme between 2014 and 2021, receiving thousands of dollars from foreign nationals in exchange for connecting them with U.S. citizen sponsors and facilitating their marriages.

The pastor of NewLife City Church in Maryland allegedly arranged an estimated 60 fraudulent marriages, and submitted reference letters on official church letterhead to a federal government agency.

He allegedly recruited and groomed American citizens with payments and promises of money in exchange for helping the foreign nationals acquire permanent residency through the sham marriages, some of which he officiated.

“On at least 34 occasions, Shonubi also allegedly created false rental leases, listing Jaypro, a corporation he formed in 2015, as landlord, to provide proof that the foreign national and U.S. citizen were living together, when in fact, they were living separately,” the District of Maryland’s Department of Justice said in a statement.

Shonubi faces a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison if convicted on the seven-count indictment.
