Last week, a court in the United Arab Emirates’ capital, Abu Dhabi, sentenced six Nigerians to life in prison for their links to Boko Haram.
They are accused of sponsoring Boko Haram by giving them money.
The Abu Dhabi Court of Appeal has arrested six people on charges of aiding and abetting Boko Haram in the form of money laundering, colluding with some money changers in Nigeria.
The court divided the men into two groups, the first of which was the two men who sentenced them even more severely, after relying on its own investigation, which dispelled any suspicion that they were members of Boko Haram.
As for the second group and four people, she gave them a lenient sentence – up to 10 years in prison, because understanding they did not join the group was too difficult.
