The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has placed six Nigerians on its terror list.
The development follows the UAE cabinet resolution No 83 of 2021, designating 38 individuals and 15 entities as those supporting and financing terrorism in the country.
According to Al Arabiya News, the decision is part UAE’s efforts in disrupting networks associated with the financing of terrorism and forestalling whatever plans they might have.
Law enforcement agencies in the country have been directed to take the necessary actions against the individuals or entities or anyone associated with them.
The six Nigerians are Abdurrahaman Ado Musa, Salihu Yusuf Adamu, Bashir Ali Yusuf, Muhammed Ibrahim Isa, Ibrahim Ali Alhassan, and Surajo Abubakar Muhammad.
Some of the other nationals are Ahmed Mohammed Abdulla Mohammed Alshaiba Alnuaimi (UAE), Mohamed Saqer Yousif Saqer Al Zaabi (UAE), Hamad Mohammed Rahmah Humaid Alshamsi (UAE), Saeed Naser Saeed Naser Alteneiji (UAE), Hassan Hussain Tabaja (Lebanon) and Adham Hussain Tabaja (Lebanon) among others.
Ray Tracing Trading Co LLC, H F Z A Arzoo International F Z E, Hanan Shipping L.L.C, Four Corners Trading Est, Sasco Logistic L.L.C, AlJarmouzi General Trading LLC and Al Jarmoozi Cargo & Clearing (L.L.C) are some of the entities designated as terrorist organisations.
In 2020, six Nigerians were jailed 10 years in the UAE for funding Boko Haram.
A court had found them guilty of setting up a Boko Haram cell in the UAE to raise funds and material assistance for the insurgents in Nigeria.
They appealed against the judgment, arguing that they were “framed”, but they lost and are currently serving their sentences.
Back home in Nigeria, a Federal High Court in Abuja has fixed September 17 for the arraignment of 400 suspects allegedly sponsoring of terrorism.
The case will come up before Justice Anwuli Chikere.
The Presidency had in March announced the arrest of the suspects, mainly Bureau De Change operators, who allegedly facilitated the transfer of money to Boko Haram terrorists.
Some Nigerians were said to be transferring the funds to the sect from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in conjunction with the BDC operators.
