Abuja - A Canadian high school student from South Sudan has landed himself in hot water after a US visa application revealed that he is 29 years old.
According to Sky News, Jonathan Nicola lied about being 16 years old when he arrived in Canada late last year. Documents have now revealed that he is 13 years older than he was previously thought to be.
A finger print scan exposed Nicola, showing that he had given 1986 as his year of birth in a previous visa application.
The fraudster was taken into custody on April 15. A date has not yet been given for his hearing.
Nicola has featured on his school's website before, with a Youtube video revealing that he is 6ft 10ins tall and shows him being coached.
See what Nicola looks like below.
