Convictions come after mass trials of Boko Haram suspects in Nigeria
Jail terms range from three to 60 years; 526 people are released for rehabilitation
A Nigerian high court convicted 205 Boko Haram suspects for their involvement with the insurgent group, according to a Justice Ministry statement on Monday.
The suspects were sentenced to jail terms ranging from three to 60 years, the ministry said.
“Most of them were convicted for professing to belong to the terrorist group, concealing information about the group which they knew or believe to be of material assistance that could lead to the arrest, prosecution or conviction of Boko Haram members,” the justice ministry statement said.
