UAE Names 6 Nigerians On Wanted List For Terrorism

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has named six Nigerians on their wanted list for terrorism.

 

The Arab country had listed 38 individuals and 15 entities, according to the foreign news platform, Al Arabaiya.

 

“The decision, WAM stated, comes within the framework of the UAE’s efforts to target and disrupt networks associated with the financing of terrorism and its associated activities,” Al Arabiya said in its report.

 

The Nigerians listed are:

Abdurrahaman Ado Musa

Salihu Yusuf Adamu

Bashir Ali Yusuf

Muhammed Ibrahim Isa

Ibrahim Ali Alhassan

Surajo Abubakar Muhammad.

 

They are joined by four Emiratis, two Lebanese, eight Yemenis, five Syrians, five Iranians, two Iraqis, one each from India, Afghanistan, Britain, Saint Kitts-Navis, Russia, and Jordan.

 

This is coming after the Federal Government charged about 400 suspects for allegedly sponsoring terrorism as the country continues to battle with insurgency.

 

The Federal Government had accused them of transferring funds to the sect from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in conjunction with the BDC operators.
