The senior pastor of Winners’ Chapel International, Bishop David Oyedepo was denied a US visa, which caused a mild drama at the United States Embassy in Lagos.
According to reports, the embassy did not give any other reason except the standard default explanation that the Bishop did not qualify for visa renewal in its assessment and urged him to try again.
Heaven was, however, let loose, when the obviously upset Bishop, created a scene whilst questioning the grounds for his refusal.
An insider said he told the embassy he had been travelling to the states as far back as the 1980s and had not violated any rules or committed any crime to have warranted being denied a renewal of his visa.
According to the source, 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 incident comes amid reports that Nigeria has been added to a new list of countries banned from entering the US under new regime imposed by President Donald Trump.
