UAE Government Jails Nigerian Woman For Posting Ordeal Faced At Dubai Airport On Twitter

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) government sentences a Nigerian woman to a one-year jail term for posting a video of how some Nigerian travelers were detained on arrival at Dubai International Airport.

On August 29, 2022, a Twitter user identified as @dunchichi shared a video of herself and some Nigerians being held up by the UAE immigration officials despite possessing valid visas.

A statement issued by the spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Franscisa Omayuli, stated that the stranded persons applied for and were issued family visas but arrived in Dubai alone.

On Friday, October 21, 2022, news broke out that @dunchichi was charged with a one year jail term by the UAE authorities for an offense relating to the earlier post.

This was confirmed in a tweet on Saturday, October 22, 2022, by a user @jerrydoubles, who claimed to be @dunchichi’s relative.

Following the attention it attracted on social media, the UAE government made a post of law that is believed she went against.
