Mohammed Hamza Ghani
Place of Birth: Barnet, United Kingdom;
Mohammed Hamza Ghani is an Islamist extremist who threatened to kill police officers has been jailed for terror offences.
He was already going through a government deradicalisation programme when he made the attack threat.
The 29-year-old phoned 999 and the anti-terrorist hotline to “claim he would kill people or police officers” on 12 January.
When officers went to his home in Barnet, Ghani confessed that electronic devices in his bedroom contained electronic copies of terrorist magazines, including Islamic State and al-Qaeda propaganda.
He was already known to authorities because he was undergoing the Channel intervention programme – which is currently under review – after expressing extremist views.
The officer seized his devices, including USB sticks and a laptop, and these were later analysed by digital forensic specialists.
They did indeed contain terrorist publications, featuring horrendous articles about how to make different types of bombs, where to carry out terrorist attacks and how to assassinate people.
When police asked him about the magazines, which included an issue commemorating the 11 September 2011 terror attacks, Ghani said he considered them “entertaining and informative”.
He pleaded guilty to eight counts of possessing documents containing terrorist information at London’s Old Bailey, and he was sentenced to two years and four months imprisonment.
