She tweeted this on Monday following a report about the reaction of the convicts’ families.

ANE reports that Surajo Muhammad and Saleh Adamu were jailed for life while Ibrahim Alhassan, AbdurRahman Musa, Bashir Yusuf and Muhammad Isa were sentenced to 10 years in prison each to be followed by deportation.

Stating the commision’s position on the Nigerians, Mrs Dabiri-Erewa tweeted on Monday: “6 Nigs convicted in the UAE for wiring $782,000 to Boko Haram. Abubakar Muhammad and Saleh Yusuf Adamu got life imprisonment while Ibrahim Ali Alhassan, AbdurRahman Ado Musa, Bashir Ali Yusuf and Muhammad Ibrahim Isa, got 10 years. They lost their appeal.

“They can approach the Supreme Court if they so desire, as we continue to appeal to Nigerians all over the world to desist from crime and criminality.”

A court found the Nigerians guilty of setting up a Boko Haram cell in the UAE to raise funds and material assistance for the insurgents in Nigeria.

It also heard they transferred up to $800,000 in favour of Boko Haram between 2015 and 2016.

A Court of Appeal upheld the 2019 judgement by a lower court.
