Dubai has banned visa application for Nigerians over recent fight in Satwa – Actor Aremu Afolayan says
Dubai has reportedly banned visa applications for Nigerians over a recent viral video of a fight in the region.
A video from the incident shows young men with machetes wreaking havoc in the neighbourhood at night. They broke the side windows of a car, destroyed other properties, chased after innocent residents, and literally disturbed the peace of the neighbourhood.
According to reports, the perpetrators of the act have been arrested by the Dubai Police.
It is also claimed that as a result of the viral video, the Dubai authorities are currently not issuing visas to Nigerian men below the age of 36.
Reacting from Dubai, Nigerian actor Aremu Afolayan lamented that this decision reached by the Dubai authorities will affect hardworking Nigerians.
He said Nigerians have a right to legally be in Dubai and those Nigerians causing trouble in Dubai are most likely illegal.
“Pick up the trouble makers and don’t use that to destroy the livelihood of every other Nigerians”
“They make trouble and kill each other, take them to jail, do anything to them, they deserve it. But there are innocent Nigerians that need to feed,” he said.
