Nigerian comedian and actor, Bovi Ugboma has opened up on his clash with a visa-issuing officer at the American embassy.
Recall news went wild when it was reported that the comedian had been banned from entering the US.
Speaking during an Instagram live session with his fans at the weekend, Bovi expressed his disappointment at the way the incident was blown out of proportion by the media.
He stated that he was embarrassed when the story was amplified in the media and wondered how anyone could gain access to a visa officer since they are protected by a glass wall.
Recalling the incident, Bovi said he only asked the officer how many visas he had obtained in the last ten years, considering he had always had two American visas in that period.
However, the officer reportedly replied, “There is a new sheriff in town,” before pushing back Bovi’s passport and that of his wife.
“The way everything went, it escalated in the media. They started to have different versions of the story,” he said.
