University of Regina Students Return To Nigeria After Immigration Battle In Canada

Do you guys remember the story of Victoria Ordu and Ihuoma Amadi, the two Nigerian students who were caught working at a Walmart with a working permit last year?  If you missed it, read it here.

Just a recap.

The two brilliant students got admission to study at the University of Regina in Saskatchewan province, Canada.

As usual they applied for working permit in order to gain employment and they’re approved to work on campus ONLY.

The two students were caught in June last year working at a Walmart in Regina.

They were reported to Canada Immigration after which they fled to a sanctuary for safety.

To cut the long story short, Immigration Canada vows to deport them for violating the employment code.

Since last year the duo and some activists, organizations have started campaigning to allow them to stay in Canada but due to the rigid immigration rule in the country, the case was ruled against them.

In November last year, Canadian immigration started processing their deportation.

After over a year of hide and seek game with Canada border service agency, Victoria Ordu and Ihuoma Amadi left Canada voluntarily on Friday the 18th of October 2013.

The duo arrived Nigeria on Sunday.

Victoria and Ihuoma hope to return to Canada to complete their study in the nearest future.

University of Regina also vows to help restore their academic status in Canada.

  1. I can boldly say Canada has the worst immigration problem in the history of the world.
    I still wonder what people r doing there.
    I was deported in 2003 and now am a billionaire in my state.
    Mtcheeeeewwwwwww

  2. u’re few of the unfortunate ones
    who is the heartless Indian handling your case
    I know dem for that they never want to hear anything Nigeria.
    Better stay in your country and attend a private university

  3. my friends in Toronto call me big daddy.
    I’m a very popular socialite back den. I was deported in 2008 years after they deported my wife and kids
    I can never I mean never visit that country again
    now am wealthy I can travel anywhere I want in the world
    Whoever chose to still stay there is doing so by choice.
    All the best ladies

  4. U ar welcom home. U ar still ours. They shuld be hapi that we ar patronising them bt they ar messing up. U ar already on top. Here u have ur freedom bt there u ar indirectly a slave. Welcom my dear

  5. Canada… Oh boi, dem too dey hate blaqz, especilly naija. If it ws a whyt guy accused of such crime, dey’l handle it wit mercy…

  6. It is a shame that not even one person on this forum took the time out to at least, scold these young ladies for what they did wrong. This is one of the biggest problems we have in this country: we support wrong doings. It is a common practise in canada for the government to deport students who violate their visa conditions. It is clearly stated on their visas in Bold letters that they are not allowed employment outside their institution of studies. These ladies knew the risk they were taking and therefore should deal with the consequences of their actions. We making them a national heroes will not correct the wrong of these girls. For those claiming that Canada deported them, can you please tell us why you were deported? I am currently a PhD student here in Canada and I know plenty Nigerian that both live and thrive in Canada. If you do something contrary to the Canadian law, you will pay a price and that is including but not limited to deportation.

    • Hey, am dual citizen, NAIJA and USA. Was in Canada a few times for vacation. Those guys suck ass I tell right now. Am not supporting those girls, matter of fact the got what they deserve under the law of those coward, wanna be, racist, uneducated, shallow minded, jealous, Canadian.
      I went the 1st time cause I like traveling and few more time cause of kids just to show them around. Canadian are pure motherfucking racist. You can even smell it off them from a mile away.
      Those ass holes need to grow up. The whole is leaving them behind in their retarded, selfish, and undeveloped state of mind

  7. at least they where not caught stealing….Canada immigration to bad.. wishing you girls all the best and the sky is ur starting point and i pray that God in heaven fight for you in every area of life. i know how hard it could be as an international student. working in campus alone cant help at all

  8. A country were their is no law, their is no sin.I don’t blame the canada government 4 doing what they have done. I belive they don’t want those ladies to come and basterdize there country.very well my sister u can achive dream here in Nigeria. So rekindle ….

  9. canada has one of the strictest immigration policies in the world canada is not a country to joke with the laws of this nation has been there since the founding fathers of the country till date well i dont know why nigerians are killing themselves to come to canada what ever to the USA ENGLAND AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND? dont they have good schools or health care system lots of nigerians dont know whats going on with the system in canada they deport people anyhow here one mistake or crime and its is over for you they dont joke with their law and they take it seriously so my advise for those girls is to go to a different place to study like england or usa so to forget your terrible experience and i wish them all the best in life and good luck

  10. they knew is illegal to work with their visa, they knew they were commiting crime, and who are they that the law will not be applied in their case? canada is not nigeria, they should go home and learn how to respect other people,s law for them.

  11. ooooh my God…… this is bad…viky and ihuoma..come home and make it here…u will be wat God wants u be…viky u were shining back in d days wen in FIA ph, ova dia also u hit dem in sports..u will sure be great irrespective of ur current triat ok….pick up urslf and face life head on…odas made it afterall….

  12. Since there is a lay down rules we cannot totally blamed Canadian Immigration officers for doing their job. Nigeria cannot be compared with any country in the world because we have laws but we don’t respect it these children thought that is how it should be everywhere. I implored the Canadian Immigrations to temper mercy with justice because these girls were not caught in prostitution or any other illegal acts, at least they should be allowed to finish their education [they were trying to help their parents]. We cannot blame the parents as well ASUU strike is over four (4) months now without any assurance of resumption. Lord have mercy in this country.

  13. ayodeji and peter both of you talk like a man that have experience and something upstair,its good to have mercy but supportive evil is the problem our citizen called nigeria,ayodeji said the dont deport innocent people,they should have endure and complete there education,then they can work and enjoy there life..am so sorry jehovah open a way back to canada to both of you to complete your educations

  14. Canada isn’t a lawless country like Nigeria. they have stipulated laws which should be strictly abided. unfortunately, in these girls cases they tried to be smart as a typical Nigerian they violated the terms of conditions meaning they had no intention of studying in Canada instead they decided to do the job of sales girls in Canada when they would dare not do it in Nigeria niw they are facing the consequences.

  15. I studied in Canada and still live here precisely in Regina, SK. The truth is Canada does’t joke with their laws. Everything is stated and once you follow the rules nobody will be after you. To be honest, Canada has one of the best immigration systems in the wolrd no doubt about that. When I was also a student, it wasn’t easy for me bu the law clearly stated you can’t work outside your campus. The lessons learned here is to be a law abiding citizens. If it were to be another citizen that is also caught in the same act, Canadian govt will do the same thing. Canada doesn’t discriminate trust me. I have lived in other developed countries and I can say that. Thousands of Nigerians are here doin great. Play by the rules and get what you want. However, gurls, naija is also full of many opportunities my advise for you is to learn from your mistakes and be focussed even in Nigeria that you are. God be with you. All the best!

  17. Olalekan, it would be fair to actually called you a liar by you saying Canada is a racist country. What is your source? America is by a long shot, more racist than Canada! From the education system to the healthcare system, there are more equality in Canada than in America. Do you think that by having a black president makes America better? And by the way, I am also a . For your information, the immediate-past Governor General of Canada was black and yes, a woman! When it comes to immigration, Canada beats the US, hands down. Did you know that Canada settles more refugees than any other country in the world? Did you also know that Canada is more immigrant-friendly than the USA? Go to the link below and find out for yourself. **link disallowed**

  18. what these ladies did was wrong .in a foreign country you have to obey their rules and should not let down your own country,s flag .you guys are representatives of your country there and any wrong step you take blacklists nigeria before the entire world.

  19. @olalekan just because the black population is small in canada does not make a racist country the history of blacks in canada is by far much better than the american black history im canadian also i can tell you that canada is way better than the usa in so many ways i beleive that what they did was a bit harsh but still its how the country moves forward
