Reports said the clergy created a scene at the office as he insisted that he has never violated any rules or done anything wrong to have warranted this denial. He requested for his phone so he can make calls, he was denied making the calls within the precincts of the visa office.

However, Bishop Oyedepo has not made any comment on the incident. ThisDay disclosed that the bishop told the embassy authorities that he has been traveling to the US since the 1980s

Also, recall that President Donald Trump confirmed his intention to impose a travel ban on some countries which Nigeria is part of.
