The General Overseer of the Living Faith Church Worldwide a.k.a Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo reportedly went ballistic after being denied visa by the Lagos office of the United States Embassy on Thursday January 30.
THIS DAY reports that after being denied US visa, the embassy did not give any reason to Bishop Oyedepo, except the standard default explanation that the cleric did not qualify for visa renewal in its assessment and urged him to try again.
According to the report, Heaven was let loose, when the obviously flustered preacher and businessman, created scene whilst querying the grounds for his refusal.
Oyedepo reportedly protested he had been traveling to the states as far back as 1980s and had not violated any rules or committed any crime to have warranted being denied a renewal of his visa.
He immediately sent for his bodyguards to get his phones so he could make some calls, but the embassy allegedly told him he could not make calls within the precincts of the visa-issuing section of the embassy.
The media outlet also reported that while ace comedian, Abovi Ugboma, popularly known as Bovi was ‘lucky’ to be issued a visa, his wife, Kris Asimonye, was denied.
This is coming following reports that emerged last week, indicating that President Donald Trump is planning to add seven countries to its travel ban list in order to restricts the flow of immigrants and visitors into the US.
The affected countries included Nigeria, Sudan, Tanzania and Eritrea from Africa while Kyrgyzstan and Belarus from Eastern Europe and Myanmar from Asia.
