A Nigerian student has allegedly been deported from the U.S. over the large quantity of weaves in her luggage.
According to the Twitter user @_Brayz, who shared the story on Saturday, the Nigerian student had been admitted into a university for her masters, only for her to arrive for her programme with weaves.
Not only was she deported, she was also banned from entering America for the next five years, the tweet claimed.
Imagine getting admitted into a US Uni for Masters, getting your visa and all that...only to be sent back by immigration & flagged for 5 years because you carried so many weaves in your box to go sell there.— Serengetti (@_Brayz) May 5, 2018
She had learned hairdressing and was told braiding & all that costs a lot over there. Trying to cash out, aunty carried two boxes filled with weaves. More weaves than clothing.— Serengetti (@_Brayz) May 5, 2018
"What's a student doing with all of these?"— Serengetti (@_Brayz) May 5, 2018
"My friends told me to bring them"
"But on your application form, you said you have no friends or family here?"
"Turn around plis dear, we'll put you on the next available flight back to Lagos"
