Dubai authorities have reportedly rejected the application of Nigerians applying for a tourist visa to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Naija News understands that Dubai companies have also asked Nigerians not to apply for jobs in the Arab country.
It was gathered that this may be connected to the recent arrest of alleged internet scammer, Ramon Abba, popularly known as Ray Huspuppi, in Dubai.
Naija News recalls that Dubai Police authorities released a video of how Hushpuppi and Olalekan Jacob Ponle popularly known as Mr. Woodbery were arrested for fraud. The Dubai based Nigerian big boy was arrested for an alleged $35 million by Interpol and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Two weeks after their arrest, Dubai Police confirmed the arrest of the Dubai based Nigerian internet fraudster. The Dubai Media Office said two Nigerians and 10 others were arrested in an operation tagged “Fox Hunt 2“. The Dubai Police said the raid resulted in the seizure of incriminating documents pertaining to a well-planned international fraud worth Dh1.6 billion (N168,823,414,720.00).
Hushpuppi and his gang of fraudsters were accused of leading an “international” online fraud network that was committing crimes outside the UAE, including money-laundering, cyber fraud, hacking, criminal impersonating, scamming individuals, banking fraud and identity theft.
