Nigerian government has been criticised over the conviction of six Nigerian People by an Abu Dhabi Federal Court of Appeal in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) over an alleged funding of Boko Haram.
Daily Trust had reported on Monday that 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 Nigerian People 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.
Here are some comments gathered by Press from Twitter;
@Sam_Basten “This is the first time I’m seeing someone being held accountable for Boko Haram and it’s not even a Nigerian court.”
@Syngar “Their conviction will be a good step to ending terrorism in Nigeria; they should also take a step further in publishing their names so the world will know them as the agents of darkness to Nigeria.”
@Abua_girl “For years now, Nigeria has not suspected or charged anyone for terrorism or involvement with Boko Haram. This shows that we are not even making any moves towards fighting Boko Haram. Audio fight.”
@Cvicright “Is the Central Bank of Nigeria not aware of such transactions? Since it affects the business of the Northern Oligarchs, it will play dumb. They feel threatened by protest for better governance and New Nigeria. Shame on

@Kaybenjamine “I’m not surprised. The Northern government is involved, the Buhari government is also involved. But time is ticking and their secret will be exposed. CBN knows their account yet won’t block but if to oppress the poor they will be number one. God’s punishment awaits them all and their household.
@Sambless “Something that CBN can’t do, but they can freeze the account of protesters.”
@Ibiwanne “The northern governors should be more concerned about unmasking the sponsors of this group & other groups operating without hindrance in the North, but instead, they are more concerned about regulating social media, even when some of them rode to power on the back of social media.”
@Tolu_Ene “This is how to deal with terrorists, not patting them on the head and begging them to drop arms.”
@Geoffreydpr “This is really funny, CBN did not see them transferring this money from 2015 to date, CBN is now a politician who freeze Nigerian People account, CBN must hide his face in shame.”
@Idorenyinetuk5 “We definitely don’t have security agencies or intelligence agencies in Nigeria. We can only hope for foreign security agencies to do the job, while ours attack innocent citizens.”
