The Abu Dhabi Federal Court of Appeal in its ruling, upheld the judgement passed by a smaller court earlier.
It was gathered that the two kingpins, Surajo Abubakar Muhammad and Saleh Yusuf Adamu were sentenced to life imprisonment, while the remaining, Ibrahim Ali Alhassan, AbdurRahman Ado Musa, Bashir Ali Yusuf and Muhammad Ibrahim Isa, got ten years prison terms each.
According to official figures released by the court, the six men had, between 2015-2016, sent $782, 000 to Boko Haram.
It was also gathered that some Nigerian Government officials were also involved in the act.
