Said Mohammed is Eritrean extremist who is jailed in the UK for sending money to a man in Iraq with connections to senior Islamic State leaders. He alongide with Ayub Nurhussein sent a total of £2,700 in a series of transfers to the contact in Iraq.
Detectives found details of messages between the Iraqi-based militant, Mohammed, who lived in Manchester, northwest England, and Nurhussein in south London.
They transferred the money after their contact in Iraq urged them to support the increasingly embattled terrorist group. They sent the money in three separate tranches in April to July 2019 via contacts in Denmark, police said.
“The situation is bad, my brother,” the man, named only as Wassim, told Mohammed, a London court was told. “If there are brothers… that would still give support, tell them this is a time of seriousness and this is a time when the Mujahideen really need you.”
Counter-terrorist officers arrested the pair at their homes in July 2009 after the last of the transfers. Searches uncovered mobile phones with chat records of their plans.
The court heard that the radicalised pair did whatever they could to support the Islamic State cause including wanted to travel to join their ranks.
They were jailed on 24th of April for funding terrorism, and Mohammed was jailed for five years and three months.
