24-year-old man bags 17yrs in jail for attempting to bomb a popular Nigerian Church in the U.S

A federal court in the United States sentenced Mustafa Mousab Alowemer of Pennsylvania to 208 months (17 years and 3 months) in prison for conspiring with an international terrorist organization, the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), to bomb a Nigerian church in Pittsburgh, US.

According to a press statement signed by Assistant Attorney-General Matthew G. Olsen of the DOJ National Security Division on Wednesday, Alowemer’s prison sentence would be followed by a lifetime of supervised release.

On September 16, 2021, the 24-year-old pleaded guilty in the Western District of Pennsylvania to one count of attempting to provide material support to ISIS in connection with his plan to attack the church. According to the statement, “Alowemer admitted to planning a deadly bombing of a Pittsburgh church in the name of ISIS,” said Olsen.

“The extraordinary work of the Pittsburgh Joint Terrorism Task Force thwarted the defendant’s plan to bomb a Pittsburgh church and risk death or injury to residents in the area in the name of ISIS,” said US Attorney Cindy K. Chung for the Western District of Pennsylvania.

 

According to court documents, Alowemer planned to bomb a church on Pittsburgh’s north side with an explosive device. His stated motivation for carrying out such an attack was to support ISIS’s cause and to inspire other ISIS supporters in the United States to band together and commit similar acts in ISIS’s name. Alowemer also intended to “take revenge for our [ISIS] brothers in Nigeria” by targeting the church, which he described as a “Nigerian Christian” church. Alowemer was aware that the explosion could kill a large number of people near the church.

In support of the church bombing plot, Alowemer distributed several instructional documents on the construction and use of explosives and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) to an individual Alowemer mistook for a fellow ISIS supporter, but who was actually an FBI employee in May 2019.

I came out of the show and I hated it. I was fake," she admitted. In addition to discussing her time on BBNaija, Doyin shared that she lost a contract due to comments she made during an interview. She acknowledged that her words led to her being dropped by the brand, stating, "I deserved to be dropped... I talked too much."
