Ex-Liverpool Player, Sheyi Ojo’s Girlfriend jailed for funding terrorism

Amaani Noor, a former beauty queen and ex-girlfriend of Nigerian Liverpool winger, Sheyi Ojo, has been convicted of funding terrorism.

Ms. Noor was handed an 18-month jail term on Friday, December 20th after she was found guilty of sending money overseas to a jihadist fighter who she had met online and later married.

Her Nigerian-born ex-boyfriend, Oluwaseyi Babajide ‘Sheyi’ Ojo is currently on loan from Liverpool and playing for Scottish Premiership side, Rangers.

Ojo joined Liverpool as a 14-year-old and came through their academy.

Now 22 years old, Ojo had started dating Noor as a 17-year-old football rising star, and they both had a long-term relationship, according to UK Mirror online.

The jury was told Noor had been in a relationship with a professional footballer when she was a teenager and also had a short marriage to a preacher.

The player was not named, but Noor had dated Nigerian-born Sheyi Ojo, who is currently on loan at Rangers.

Noor, 21, was wooed online by a man she fondly addressed as “Hakim My Love;” and had told him, “It’s been my dream to marry a fighter for a long time and my dream to be a fighter myself even longer.”

Noor, of Cinema Drive in Wavertree, Liverpool, had claimed she believed that the $45 she donated to the Merciful Hands organisation on May 23, 2018, would go to buy food for women and children in Syria.

But earlier this month, a jury found her guilty of fundraising for terrorists contrary to the Terrorism Act 2000.

She was in tears as she was told she would be jailed.
