Mohamed Bailor Jalloh, of Sterling, Virginia, a former National Guard soldier from was considering a “Fort Hood-style” attack on a military base has been accused of attempting to provide assistance to I.S.I.S, federal prosecutors said. The FBI said Jalloh told an informant he was interested in doing “Nidal Hassan type of things. That’s the kind of stuff I started thinking you know. … I just want to live a good Muslim life and die as a (martyr).”
Jalloh made several unsuccessful attempts to purchase guns in 06/2016 in North Carolina, according to court documents. He owned a legally purchased Glock 19 9mm handgun, the FBI says. He also told an informant he has a family member who has access to AR-15s and AK-47s, the FBI said.
Mohamed Jalloh also praised Nidal Hassan, the Fort Hood dhooter, and Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, who killed five military members in a July 2015 attack on a military training facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Mohamed Bailor Jalloh was in contact with a now-dead ISIS fighter he met online. The I.S.I.S member, who is not named, put Jalloh in touch with the FBI informant, without knowing that he was really a government source, according to court documents.
The informant and Jalloh first met in 03/2016, FBI Special Agent Nicholas Caslen said in his affidavit. In 05/2016, Jalloh asked the informant to help him make a donation to ISIS.
“Ultimately, Jalloh provided a prepaid cash transfer of $500 to a contact of the CHS that Jalloh believed was a member of ISIS, but who was in fact an undercover FBI employee,” prosecutors said. He told informant that he quit the National Guard after listening to online lectures by deceased hate preacher Anwar al-Awlaki.
Mohamed Jalloh traveled to Africa in 06/2015, visiting his native country of Sierra Leone, before returning to the United States in 01/2016. During the visit Jalloh also visited Nigeria, where he said he met ISIS members (probably Boko Haram members), according to prosecutors.
During discussions about a possible attack, Mohamed Jalloh told the informant that it was better to plan an operation for the month of Ramadan, which ends July 5. The Islamic State’s leaders have called for attacks around the world in ISIS’ name during Ramadan. He faces up to 20 years in prison if found guilty.
