UAE Suspends Direct Employment Visa For Nigerians Over Rising Crimes
Nigerians have been temporarily denied Direct Employment Visas by the United Arab Emirates (UAE), allegedly due to an increased rate of crimes involving Nigerians there, according to a report published by Sahara Reporters.
Several credible sources told the medium that the UAE police are searching for more Nigerian nationals and conducting raids and arrests to put them in jail.
We all shout about how bad our country is and how our government is not meeting our needs, which is true, but our reputation abroad is also rapidly deteriorating due to the way we are.
“Two weeks ago, some Nigerians killed one another for selfish reasons at Sharjah, and another one just happened here in Abu Dhabi, when some guys went to an Arab man’s house, killed him, his wife and took away a huge amount of money from them.
According to the source, the UAE government is now tracking every Nigerian living in Abu Dhabi and has also blocked every Direct Employment Visa from Nigeria until further notice.
The UAE has been experiencing a rise in crime rates among Nigerians.
In the meantime, police in Dubai have arrested three Nigerian women in Sharjah after extensive investigations, while a fourth is still at large.
The three Nigerian defendants have been charged with robbery, issuing threats, keeping the victim forcefully confined inside an apartment, and prostitution.
