Six Nigerians have been placed on terrorism watchlist by the United Arab Emirates as financiers of Boko Haram and other criminal activities, according to the Emirates News Agency.
The Emirates News Agency, also known as WAM, said the list was released after the Emirate federal cabinet met in the capital, Abu Dhabi, Monday.
The Nigerians placed on the terrorism sponsors’ watch list include; Abdurrahaman Ado Musa, Salihu Yusuf Adamu, Bashir Ali Yusuf, Muhammed Ibrahim Isa, Ibrahim Ali Alhassan and Surajo Abubakar Muhammad.
The list also features 15 companies from across the world said to be involved in sponsoring terrorism.
The individuals listed are from mostly the Gulf region. However, six Nigerians, a British passport carrying Arab, Fadi Said Kamar, and two Arabs from Saint Kitts and Nevis feature in the terror watchlist.
The UAE had earlier accused an official of the Nigerian government of sponsoring the terrorist group, Boko Haram, which has killed thousands of people in the country.
The Emirate authorities are yet to release the name of the official, amidst reports that some people in Nigeria are mounting diplomatic pressure not to publish the name.
