A Flin Flon Man has Been Returned to Nigeria.

Festus Odua crossed the border at Emerson, Manitoba into Canada in April 2017 with other refugees.  He married Rikki Petersen last January, their daughter was born in August and they were living in FlinFlon when Rikki says he got notice he had to return to Nigeria as they had waited for information that didn’t arrive until November.  She explains what they did is they took some legal advice that maybe wasn’t the best route to go and they believed that they were safe to wait to put in their spousal sponsorship until they received their daughter’s birth certificate and now in hindsight there’s been an error made in Festus’s case that caused them to speed up the removal of him.

               Rikki says she now has to start over and file a new spousal sponsorship application to prove she can support him for three years even though he was working here when he got notice to leave.
