Nigerian man and his Canadian wife arrested for trafficking 9 Africans .

As Victor Omoruyi was driving just south of the Canada-U.S. border in North Dakota last Friday evening, his wife was driving not far away on the Canadian side — in southeastern Saskatchewan near the North Portal border crossing.


The Regina pair were stopped by authorities at the two locations and taken into custody that night as part of an investigation into the smuggling of foreign nationals.

Officials had been investigating him since before Christmas for frequent border crossings. U.S. border agents flagged Canadian officials that a smuggling attempt may be in the works.

An hour later, around 9 p.m., Michelle Omoruyi, 43, was pulled over by officers and arrested with nine people from West Africa in her vehicle. The nine people included five adults and four children.

South of her, in North Dakota, U.S. officials were taking her husband and two other people into custody for immigration violations. The arrests were made after a four-month joint investigation in the Saskatchewan region.
