OPINION: Facing The Reality That Six Nigerians Were Listed Among The Global Sponsors Of Boko Haram and ISWAP Terrorism

By nature, the Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists are perfect representatives of everything that can take the form of evil. This is strictly as a result of the entire acts of inhumanity that they have orchestrated in the country, especially in the North-East.

Although, according to a recent statement by the Acting General Officer Commanding 7 Division of the Nigerian Army, Brig General Abdulwahab Eyitayo, the military has so far received over 8,000 Boko Haram fighters and their family members since their unprecedented mass surrendering began, the destructions of lives and property that they committed can not be forgotten in a hurry. The most appalling aspect of them is that, albeit several thousands of them have surrendered, those who are still waging war against the troops, and by implication the country, might likewise later come out crawling on their knees begging for forgiveness. Only about two days ago, some of them have allegedly killed up to 25 soldiers.

However, as the deadly terrorists continue with their surprising killing and destructive sprees, a revelation about the sources of their power is even more amazing. That is the fact that they are being sponsored by some heartless privileged persons who include NigerIans!

It is not surprising that both of the Al-Qaeda Network and ISIS might have been fingered as their financiers because they are all Into terrorism and also that NigerIa is not their country. But to imagine that NigerIans can be sponsoring terrorism against their country is something that should have better only been imagined. Unfortunately, however, according to findings, it is simply real. And to corroborate this, see below:

1.) Six of them were arrested, arraigned and convicted in the UAE last year.

2.) Also, about a week ago, the same set of six NigerIans mentioned above were fingered by the Emirates Federal Executive of the UAE to be among the total of 53 identified global sponsors of terrorism.

3.) In May of this year, the federal government announced that a whole 400 others were arrested in different parts of the country; and were in custody awaiting trials.

With the above and other proofs, it is indeed astonishing that NigerIans are actually among those empowering the marauding terrorists known as Boko Haram/ISWAP insurgents. This is regrettably despite their acts of destroying lives and property. It is unimaginable that anyone in his right senses will support, let alone finance, the killing and maiming of his fellow citizens?
