ThisDay suspends two Deputy Editors over Oyedepo’s false US visa story

Two deputy editors of ThisDay newspaper have been suspended indefinitely over the false story: “Drama as US Embassy Denies Bishop Oyedepo Visa,” published last week Friday.

ThisDay management announced the suspension of Mr. Yemi Ajayi and Mr. Olawale Olaleye in a statement today.

The story, which went viral, claimed that Bishop Oyedepo was denied visa by the US Embassy and that the bishop lost his temper at the embassy.

The story was subsequently refuted by the embassy and Oyedepo’s Winners Chapel as false.
