Nigerian government has been criticised over the conviction of six Nigerians by an Abu Dhabi Federal Court of Appeal in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) over an alleged funding of Boko Haram.
Surajo Abubakar Muhammad and Saleh Yusuf Adamu were sentenced to life imprisonment after being found guilty of the act.
Meanwhile, Ibrahim Ali Alhassan, AbdurRahman Ado Musa, Bashir Ali Yusuf and Muhammad Ibrahim Isa, got ten-year imprisonment each.
The Court’s documents showed that between 2015 and 2016, the convicts were allegedly involved in cash transfers totaling $782,000.00 to Boko Haram.
This conviction has generated reactions from Nigerians who called out the Buhari-led government for the delay in identifying and persecuting sponsors of Boko Haram.
The Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN was also called out for not investigating the accounts yet so bothered about freezing accounts of End SARs promoters
