The al-Qaeda-allied group al-Shabaab executed US-born jihadist Omar Hammami on April 5th, according to unconfirmed Somali media reports.
Hammami, known as Abu Mansour al-Amriki, said he feared for his life from other al-Shabaab leaders because of strategic and ideological differences in a statement released last month.
According to Somalia's Gedo Online, Hammami was the only one absent from a recent meeting attended by top al-Shabaab leaders in Baraawe.
Al-Shabaab reportedly hunted down Hammami after he left Marka in the Lower Shabelle region. He was reportedly beheaded on the spot and buried somewhere between Marka and Baraawe.
According to the report, the alleged execution angered some al-Shabaab leaders, who accused al-Shabaab leader Ahmed Abdi Godane of ordering the execution.
A group of foreign fighters and other top al-Shabaab members, including Fuad Mohamed Khalaf, also known as Fuad Shongoole, reportedly fled to the Galgala Mountains following the news of the execution.
Other leaders who left upon hearing the news include Hassan Dahir Aweys and Mukhtar Robow, Gedo Online reported.
Aweys recently accused other al-Shabaab leaders, including Godane, of shedding the blood of Muslims and murdering innocent civilians in the name of Islam. He described the actions of al-Shabaab's leaders as far removed from Islam.
Somali analysts say the al-Qaeda affiliated al-Shabaab group is on the verge of splintering due to deepening internal divisions exacerbated by recent military setbacks.
Say hi to Osama!
A brutal end to jihadi rap.
Hip hop? Chop chop! (Hmmm, Dr. Seuss material)
Or they just pretend to be dead so no one looks for them.
“Say hi to Osama!”
Say hi to Osama in hell.
(there, fixed it)
See......even if you convert to this blood-soaked “religion”, even if you adopt their murderously insane dogma of “jihad”....even if you become a LEADER of jihadis.....they’ll still saw your noggin off.
Take a hint, world. These are subhuman demons. Stay away.
It’s taken 10 days for that news to come out?
Hope it’s true
“And they that rolleth a stone, it shall return upon them”
ALAHU REBAR !
It seemed redundant.
‘Hope his mom and dad are real proud
And his point was what, exactly?
Isn't murdering innocent civilians in the name of Islam kind of what it's all about for them? And, aren't they all in favor of shedding the blood of Muslims, as long as it is Muslims who are doing the killing?
Get with the program, dude...
Beheading gung-ho Western jihad volunteers is a great recruiting tool.
He was real surprised that islam wasn’t so tolerant after all.
Dumb ass, say hi to Osama in hell!
How about a candidate that we can support?
