Maalim Ayman, (also known as Ma’alim Ayman, Mo’alim Ayman, Nuh Ibrahim Abdi, Abdiaziz Dubow Ali and Ayman Kabo) is the leader of Jaysh Ayman, an al-Shabaab unit conducting terrorist attacks and operations in Kenya and Somalia.
Ayman was responsible for preparing the January 2020 attack on Camp Simba in Manda Bay, Kenya, that killed one US military service member and two American contractors,” the US government said in a statement released on November 17.
Counter-terrorism officials have told the Nation that Ayman is holed up in Somalia after several failed attempts to neutralise him.
In June 2019, there were suspicions that a suspected Kenyan air strike in the town of Jamame in Southern Somalia may have killed Ayman.
The statement by the US government now confirms he was not killed in the attack. While very little is known about Ayman, the face of Jaysh Ayman in the country has been Ramadhan Kufungwa.
