Popular Nigerian Comedian, Bovi Ugboma, has explained the reason he was banned from entering the United States after his visa request was refused.
Bovi spoke to his followers on an Instagram live feed at the weekend where he explained that the visa officer interviewing him at the US embassy was very unfriendly.
Bovi also explained that he did not at any time attack the visa officer who was behind a glass compartment. He said he only asked the visa officer how many visas he had obtained in the last ten years, since he had two US visas in that period.
According to Bovi, the visa office got irritated and replied, “There is a new sheriff in town” before pushing back the passport of Bovi and his wife.
Bovi expressed surprise at how the incident had been twisted out of proportion by the media.
