Music Icon, Tubaba Idibia’s younger brother, Hyacinth Idibia, on Facebook yesterday, Wednesday, March 8, 2017, claimed that he was denied entry into the United States.
Hyacinth a.k.a H-I wrote: “I’ve just been denied entry into the United States #frustrated #stranded,”
It was gathered that Tubaba’s brother had been living in Virginia, United States for years before now.
He is yet to update his Facebook status on whether he has finally been granted entry into the United States or not.
This is coming after the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, on Monday March 6, 2017, urged Nigerians not to travel to the US unless they have a compelling reason. She explained that the warning became necessary after some Nigerians with valid visas were denied entry into the US.
However, Nigeria’s Foreign Affairs Minister Geoffrey Onyeama contradicted Abike Dabiri’s statement saying that no Nigerian with full valid entry visa has been denied entry to the U.S. as being widely spread.
He said that Nigerians were free to travel to the United States as they never blacklisted. The minister also added that he was constantly in touch with the Nigerian Ambassador to the U.S. and the U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, adding that there was no report on Nigerians being denied entry into the U.S.
