He said his girlfriend had visited him from Lagos at that time to break the news that she got a UK visa and would be moving abroad.
The lady explained that she had everything ready for the trip except for the flight ticket.

Lady who bagged abroad scholarship cries out that her boyfriend is threatening to leave her
Meanwhile, Briefly News' sister site in Nigeria, Legit.ng previously reported that a Nigerian lady who got an abroad scholarship had sought advice as her boyfriend threatened to end their relationship if she flies out.
Faced with the dilemma, she shared her problem with a LinkedIn influencer, Rita Orji who is a well-known Nigerian professional residing in Canada.
Sharing the story on LinkedIn, Professor Rita Orji wrote:
"Woke up to an email from a lady who got a fully-funded admission for an MSc. abroad. Her 'boyfriend' told her to choose between the admission and him. She seeks my advice. I don't interfere in relationship issues but think it's unfair to give her such condition."
