LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) – Nigeria says it has denied a visa to a former U.S. ambassador who has raised concerns over the stability of Africa's most populous nation.
A spokesman for the Nigeria's Ministry of Foreign Affairs told The Associated Press Wednesday that the West African's nation mission in Washington, D.C. refused former ambassador John Campbell a visa to Nigeria.
Damien Agu said Campbell "did not meet the visa requirements."
Campbell, a former envoy to Nigeria is now a fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York.
His book titled "Nigeria: Dancing on the Brink" is critical of the country's political class and his articles have raised concerns that members of a radical Muslim sect active in Nigeria's northeast could form ties with al-Qaida.

...the truth should never be suppressed.
Is he being denied a visa bcos he said the truth?

We all know what the Boko Haram terrorist group has done.
so, what's strange in linking them to the Taliban or Al Qaeda?

Instead of cleaning-up our system, we are busy sweeping
facts under the carpet.

i think poster you should have a rethink, about your caption. i mean that was too childish of you rejoicing that nigeria denied someone a visa. US and some other countries including some african countries have been denning nigerians visa yet they do not rejoice.
the other time south africa denied our celebrities visa, yet it was just like a normal stuff and here you are shouting  YES, for what. better get some matured enough to get nice captions for u. kkkkk
