Insecurity; HIGH PROFILE NIGERIANS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR TERRORISM FINANCING
High profile Nigerian men are responsible for the financing of terrorism said AGF.
Abubakar Malami who is the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, and Minister of Justice, said in the early hours of today Friday May 7th that investigations have revealed that some high profile Nigerians are sponsoring terrorists in the country. He said that such persons are being profiled for prosecution, this was stated in a chat with State House correspondents at the presidential villa, Abuja, He said the arrest of the undisclosed number of suspects followed the recent convictions of some Nigerians on terrorism financing in the United Arab Emirates, UAE. He said this;
“As you will actually know, sometimes back, there were certain convictions of Nigerians allegedly involved in terrorism financing in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). “That gave rise to a wider and far-reaching investigation in Nigeria and I’m happy to report that arising from the wider coverage investigation that has been conducted in Nigeria, a number of people, both institutional and otherwise, were found to be culpable. I mean reasonable grounds for suspicion of terrorism financing have been established, or perhaps has been proven to be in existence in respect of the transactions of certain higher profile individuals and businessmen across the country.”
