UAE imposes visa ban on Nigerians over cult clashes
Following cult clashes between the rival factions Eiye and Aiye that allegedly involved Nigerians that broke out in Sharjah, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has purportedly imposed visa restrictions on Nigerians.

The UAE Government may or may not have made an official announcement to that effect, but a number of travel companies and Dubai locals are said to have corroborated the news.

Inquiries over the development have gone unanswered at the UAE Embassy in Abuja.

The UAE's decision is said to have been influenced by a video that went viral last week showing a group of men brandishing machetes while shouting, pursuing one another, and causing damage to public property.

The police in a statement on July 21, said the suspects are of African origin and warned residents against engaging in violence.

“The Dubai Police has arrested a group of people, who were engaged in a heated argument in their residence at late hours) The group of African people appeared in a viral video on social media platforms while fighting in a public place and damaging properties,” the statement read.

The police also said a criminal case has been registered against the suspects and they will be referred to the public prosecution for further action.
