The United States Embassy in Nigeria has quickly debunked the news reports making the rounds that the founder of Living Faith Church, Bishop Oyedepo was denied Visa by the Embassy.
The Embassey took to its twitter handle @USEmbassyAbuja to announce that the news report which emanated from Thisday Newspaper, was totally fake, urging Nigerians to defeat the fake news with the correct information.
The Embassy wrote: “#FalseNews Alert! Be advised, the reports making the rounds about a visa being denied to Nigerian Bishop Oyedepo are false. If you have seen this manufactured item in the media, help defeat this #misinformation by communicating to everyone that it is completely false.
Meanwhile, former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode offered a clarification on the news report. According to FFK, the incident happened last year. After the embassy initially denied the clergyman visa, they immediately wrote him an apology and then issued him the visa.
