A Federal Court in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has convicted six Nigerians over alleged funding of Boko Haram. The conviction was upheld by the appellate court after they lost an earlier appeal at a lower court.

Two of the convicts – Surajo Abubakar Muhammad and Saleh Yusuf Adamu were sentenced to life imprisonment, while the rest – Ibrahim Ali Alhassan, AbdurRahman Ado Musa, Bashir Ali Yusuf and Muhammad Ibrahim Isa, got ten-year prison sentences each.

According to court documents, between 2015 and 2016, the convicts were involved in cash transfers totalling $782,000.00 to Boko Haram.
