According to South African news station Kaya 959, the three men attempted to go to Dubai in the hope of making a better life for themselves after hearing how the UAE was a prosperous country with plenty of opportunities for entrepreneurs.
UAE laws are known to be very strict on criminal activity. According to the Federal Decree-Law No.34/2021 in the UAE, a jail term and/or penalty is imposed on individuals who impersonate or defame others. An imprisonment term of one month to three years and a fine of not less than Dhs50,000 and not more than Dhs200,000 would be slapped on an individual who impersonates or defames others.
Quite a lot of the people who saw the would-be migrants’ disguises were impressed by the results.
Ali Salman said “I was actually convinced in the first pic,” and ‘Stanley’ added, “I want the number of the makeup artist.”
More than one commenter brought up Keenen Ivory Wayans’s 2004 comedy White Chicks, in which two black FBI agents make themselves over as a pair of rich white socialites to foil a kidnap plot.
Some commenters have suggested that the three men were from Mali rather than Nigeria, and others have added that they were trying to make their way into Algeria rather than the UAE, but that is almost beside the point.
The arrest came soon after a video of the man performing dangerous stunts and fleeing the scene after falling off the vehicle and sustaining injuries.
The mentally disturbed man also attacked a security guard and a food delivery driver. Investigations showed that he suffers from severe mental disorders.
