Indications have emerged that the authorities of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have stopped issuing visas to Nigerians, following the stabbing of a police officer by a group of six boys.

The incident, which took place in Deira, the hub of business in Dubai, resulted in the massive arrest of blacks irrespective of their nationalities.

The officer was said to have died immediately from the injuries he sustained from the incident.

A source, who was in the region during the incident, warned Nigerians to be careful in order to avoid arrest.

“Those of you who have relatives in Dubai should be warned. The atmosphere is so hot especially for those without permit,” he said.
