The newspaper also claimed in its report that Bishop Oyedepo created a scene at the embassy after being denied a visa.

However, on Friday, January 31, the Embassy 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,” the US Embassy said.
