Nigerian man deported for allegedly killing parrot within one month in Canada



A Nigerian man was said to have been deported from Canada, not spending up to a month, for allegedly killing a bird animal, a parrot.

The occurrence was shared on Twitter by one Dr. Oludesa who claimed that the parrot had a GPS tracker on it, but the Nigerian man was immediately deported for being the cause of the bird’s death without knowing about the tracker.

In his words:

Them deport person from Canada within one month on arrival because e go kill pet parrot wey wear GPS tracker. Like, are you blind?”

Reacting to the tweet, Aluko Olami recounted how a similar occurrence happened to another countryman, but with a different animal.
