This story like it should be a story on a TV show, but no, it’s real.
Unfortunately, it’s a true story and it’s a continuing case happening in Canada where 30-year old Jonathon Nicola came over from South Sudan in Africa on what he said was a Canadian student visa. Nicola’s story in Africa isn’t clear yet, but we can assume that it was hard living.
The head coach, Pete Cusumano for the Windsor, Ontario’s Catholic Central High School even had the star player living with him through a program called Canada Homestay.
This program helps international students find “a home away from home” and that’s what they did for the would be student who stands at 6’9 and 202 pounds.
This man had topnotch basketball skills… his skills even had the school’s coach even saying, that Nicola was NBA material.
Nicola is being held by the Canadian Border Services agency under the violation of the Immigration Refugee Protection Act.
