Oct 21, 2013 – 2 Nigerian Students Facing Deportation From Canada Return Home; Victoria Ordu & Ihuoma Amadi Arrive Lagos
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.
