Hisham Muhammad is an Islamic State supporter who attempted to remodel a drone to be used in a terror attack against the British armed forces or police. He builted a release mechanism for a commercial drone while researching other methods including knife attacks.
The police found a variety of bladed articles, components, drawings, notes, camouflage clothing and masks at his home in Bury, Greater Manchester.
Muhammad possessed weapons including a tomahawk, machete, “bear claws” and two axes, and had practiced stabbing movements on cardboard boxes and clothing.
The defendant, who moved to the United Kingdom in 2013, is also accused of creating “ninja eggs” containing chilli and glass shards that could be used to “incapacitate or otherwise weaken” attack victims or emergency service responders.
Some of the weapons were allegedly paid for by money gained through a bogus escort agency set up by Muhammad and his cousin, where customers were asked for an upfront payment as a “gesture of goodwill”.
The court heard that in May 2018, Muhammad expressed a “false interest” in joining the British army in order to visit the Castle Armoury Barracks in Bury and that he had also searched military and armed police bases online.
