Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, on Tuesday expressed delight over the conviction of some Nigerians in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for sponsoring Boko Haram activities.
In a statement issued by his media aide, Isa Gusau, the governor urged the Federal Government to follow up on the findings of the UAE authorities on the convicts.
A court in Abu Dhabi had last week upheld the conviction of six Nigerians for funding the terror group.
The convicts, according to the court, used Bureau De Change operations to send $782,000 to Boko Haram in 17 separate transfers from Dubai to Nigeria between 2015 and 2016.
But the families of the convicted men had raised questions on the UAE court judgment, insisting that the convicts were innocent of the charges.
