The decision came in a resolution adopted by the Emirati federal cabinet on Monday.

• September 14, 2021

The United Arab Emirates on Monday designated six Nigerians as financiers of Boko Haram and other criminal activities.

The decision was made when the Emirates federal cabinet met in the capital Abu Dhabi on Monday, according to state-run WAM news agency.

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.

The decision came about a year after the Nigerians were indicted for sponsoring Boko Haram. A Nigerian government official was said to be involved in sponsoring the dreaded sect that has killed over 100,000 civilians and security forces and inflicted untold economic damage on the country since its campaign began in 2009.

The government official has yet to be publicly identified by the Emirati authorities, amidst claims that some elements in the Nigerian government were mounting diplomatic pressure not to publish the name.

At least 47 other foreign nationals and entities were also added to the watch list by the UAE on Monday.
