Evidently, the Nigerian had violated the requirements of his student visa, which forbids him from working more than 20 hours per week.

Unfortunately, his visa was revoked since he did not follow the rules and meet the requirements.

Excerpt from the document:

“Explanation of cancellation


Your permission to stay in the UK has been revoked and will no longer be valid starting immediately. These are the causes:

You are specifically seen as someone who obtained permission to stay by fraud. Following your application for a work leave to remain visa, you were given permission to stay until September 14, 2027.

This was approved after you affirmed that you had not previously broken any of the terms of your T4 student visa.
