Lawyer hails UAE for exposing Nigerians sponsoring terrorism




Renowned legal practitioner, Mr. Kunle Edun Esq today hailed the United Arab Emirates for publishing the names of six Nigerians and other organizations involved in the global sponsor of terrorism.

This is contained in a statement signed and made available to DAILY POST.
Edun, who is the National Welfare Secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, said, “The UAE has done the right thing. No sane country will shield terrorists and sponsors of terrorism.

“That is the message UAE is sending to Nigeria but whether the Federal government will take heed and do the needful to protect the people of Nigeria against these terrorists is what I don’t know.”

According to Edun, “A country should not have anything to do with sponsors and sympathisers of terrorism.”

He stated that, “The so called banditry is actually terrorism. The body language of the federal government must not be seen to be encouraging them.

“The federal government should also publish the names of those behind the banditry and terrorism in Nigeria and stop shielding them.” Dailypost

Saudi Arabia executes 37 in connection with terrorism

Saudi Arabia executed 37 of its citizens on Tuesday for what it said were “terrorism” related crimes, publicly pinning two of the bodies to a pole as a warning to others.



The individuals were found guilty of attacking security installations with explosives, killing a number of security officers, and cooperating with “enemy organisations” against the interests of the country, the interior ministry said in a statement.

The sentences were carried out in Riyadh, the Muslim holy cities of Mecca and Medina, central Qassim province, and Eastern Province, home to the country’s Shia minority
The men were executed “for adopting terrorist and extremist thinking and for forming terrorist cells to corrupt and destabilise security”, a statement by the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) said.



Two of the executed men's bodies were publicly hung from a pole for several hours in a process that is not frequently used by the kingdom and has sparked controversy for its grisly display.

The interior ministry said the individuals had been found guilty according to the law and ordered executed by the Specialized Criminal Court in Riyadh, which focuses on terrorism trials, and the country’s high court.

Leading executioner
The report didn’t state how the death penalty was implemented, but executions in Saudi Arabia are known to be carried out by shooting or beheading with a sword, sometimes in public.



Executions are traditionally carried out after midday prayers. Public displays of the bodies of executed people last for around three hours until late afternoon prayers, with the severed head and body hoisted to the top of a pole overlooking a main square.

The state killings came a day after the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant said it was behind an attack on Sunday on a Saudi security building in the town of Zulfi. In that attack, all four gunmen were killed and three security officers were wounded.
At least 100 people have been executed in Saudi Arabia since the beginning of the year, according to a count based on official data released by SPA.



Last year, the oil-rich Gulf state carried out the death sentences of 149 people, according to Amnesty International, which said only Iran was known to have executed more people.
