ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) — A Nigerian Federal court has charged two Nigerians with providing support for acts of terrorism by an Iranian militant cell.
Abdullahi Mustapha Berende, Saheed Oluremi Adewumi and a third suspect were arrested in February when Nigeria's secret police broke up a group backed by "Iranian handlers" who wanted to gather intelligence about locations frequented by Israelis.
The court on Wednesday charged Berende with traveling to Iran between September 2011 and December 2012 and providing "terrorist training together with others now at large on the use of firearms, explosives and other related weapons." among the six counts. It said he received some $30,000 in cash to fund the group's operations.
Justice Ahmed Mohammed adjourned the proceeding to Sept. 17 after the men pleaded not guilty to the six counts.
