The United Arab Emirates has designated six Nigerians as financiers of Boko Haram and other criminal activities.
The decision was made on Monday when the Emirate federal cabinet met in the capital Abu Dhabi, according to state-run WAM news agency.
The agency says in its reports that the UAE Cabinet has issued Resolution No 83 of 2021, designating 38 individuals and 15 entities on its approved list of persons and organisations supporting terrorism (Local Terrorist List).
Abdurrahaman Ado Musa, Salihu Yusuf Adamu, Bashir Ali Yusuf, Muhammed Ibrahim Isa, Ibrahim Ali Alhassan and Surajo Abubakar Muhammad were the six Nigerians placed on the Middle-East giant’s watch list.
According to Peoples’ Gazette, the decision came about a year after the Nigerians were indicted for sponsoring Boko Haram.
The news agency said that the resolution underscores the UAE’s commitment to target and dismantle networks that finance terrorism and its related activities.
The resolution demands that regulatory authorities monitor and identify any individuals or entities affiliated with or associated with any financial, commercial or technical relationship and take the necessary measures according to the laws in force in the country in less than 24 hours.
At least 47 other foreign nationals and entities were also added to the watch list by the UAE on Monday.
