We have been in this country since January.
We came with tourist visa and UAE government are giving us till August 10 to leave the country otherwise we will under obligation to pay a fine.
If we can't pay the fine, we will be jailed.
Please help us to plead with Nigeria government to assist us, even if we are going to pay at least airlines should reduce the money for us as we don't want to end our life in jail oooo
Before UAE's extended our visa to expire by December 31 2020 now they have reversed their law and it's now August 10.
We went to Nigeria Embassy today (22/07/2020) to lodge our complaint but the embassy officials said they cannot do anything. Even those that have paid them are yet to be evacuated.
Nigerian Embassy officials even called UAE Police officers on us.
Please help by sharing
