Davido Is A Liar,Nigerian Immigration Service Fires!

The Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), has on Monday debunked bribery allegations leveled against its officials by singer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido through his actions and statements at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Ikeja and on his Instagram page, last Thursday.

The public relations officer of the service, Mr. Chukwuemeka Obua in a statement said, Davido approached immigration officials at the airport with the intention of traveling out of the country with his U.S. passport with number 460918874 issued by the U.S. State of Georgia on December 14, 2009 and valid till December 13, 2019 but could not be granted exit because he had no Nigerian Visa on the passport with which he would have been admitted back into the country. The attendant drew Davido’s attention to this and his response was that he had a Nigerian passport but forgot it at home.

It was further stated in the statement that, the official told Davido to go back home and get the passport so as to verify that he had not entered into Nigeria illegally with a foreign passport without visa in the first place. In response to this, Adeleke started arguing with the official who then referred the issue to his superior.

“Livid with anger, Davido in company of his bodyguards, started protesting in a loud and disorderly manner which prompted the intervention of  the Comptroller of Immigration in charge at MMIA who then advised Adeleke to call his bodyguards to order and comply with the lawful instruction which would not only erase any doubt as to his immigration status but also establish his claim to dual citizenship”.

“Mr. Adeleke left and on the following day, being Friday, May 9, 2014, produced his Nigerian passport with number A02227477 issued in Abuja on August 13, 2010 and valid till August 12, 2015. This passport was endorsed/stamped and he then proceeded on his trip,” Mr. Obua explained.

Davido, had earlier taken to his Instagram page where he accused the immigration officer of corruption. “Missed my flight to London!! Pissed!! … immigration officers always harassing me cus of money!! …!!,” he said.

This statement was described by the NIS as damning and defamatory.

“This behaviour by the young musician is quite unfortunate. One would ordinarily have expected some form of commendation from him for the professional manner the officers who attended to him conducted themselves, especially by saving him from imminent embarrassment at some international port of entry by ensuring that his passport was endorsed as is the law and practice in Nigeria,” he said.

“The intention of this statement is not to join issues with Mr Adeleke but to set the facts of the incident, as it happened at MMIA on the said day, straight.”

Davido is yet to react to the NIS’ version of events. Effort to speak to his manager have unsuccessful as his telephone number was unreachable as at press time.
