The Living Faith Church Worldwide General Overseer, Bishop David Oyedepo was denied visa by the Lagos office of the United States (US) Embassy on Thursday January 30.

Reasons behind this denial were not made clear but Bishop Oyedepo was given the default explanation of not being qualified for visa renewal and was advised to try again.

Eyewitnesses claimed that the Bishop created a scene at the premises as he stated that he had not violated any rules nor committed any crime to have his visa denied.

When the Bishop asked for his phones to make some calls, he was reportedly informed that making calls is prohibited within the visa-issuing section of the embassy.

The report is coming days after reports that President Donald Trump confirmed his intention of imposing a travel on seven countries including Nigeria.

Bishop Oyedepo is yet to publicly comment on the incident, ThisDay reported that he told the Embassy’s authorities that he has been traveling to the United States since the 1980s.

Embassy sources however hinted of the possibility that the popular preacher might have made some calls to individuals that would intervene on his behalf and the visa eventually issued.
