Following reports that made the rounds about a visa being denied to Bishop David Oyedepo, the US Embassy has come out to debunk the news item.
The US Embassy made this known via its Twitter handle -@USEmbassyAbuja. The statement read thus:
“FakeNews 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”.
Scooper had earlier published a story about the Bishop’s visa denial and as at the time of publication, the accuracy of the report was not in doubt. However, the new development – the US Embassy’s debunk creates a new reality as regard the circumstances surrounding this event.
