It looks like Salieu Jallow’s marabout has succeeded in nailing his British girlfriend down and tied her to him.
The woman, who is 49 and a mother-of-nine, dumped her husband for Salieu after meeting him online.
According to the British media, the 32-year-old Gambia managed to convince Heidi Hepworth to convert to Islam as they prepare to tie the knot in the country sometime next year.
The mother-of-nine told The Sun that The Gambia is a happier and more caring place than Britain, where she was born and brought up.
She described her relationship with Salieu as the “real thing” saying: “No-one imagined this would last but we love each other and are making plans to marry. I’ve never been happier.”
The Sunrevealed Heidi split with her husband of 23 years when she hooked up with her Gambian lover on Facebook.
