Somali-American Cab Driver Graduates to FBI’s Most Wanted Man

Somali-American Cab Driver Graduates to FBI's Most Wanted Man

According to the Counter Terrorism Division of the FBI in Washington, a Somali-American has graduated from being a Washington DC cab driver to one of the most wanted man on FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list – with a $50,000 bounty on his head.

Liban Haji Mohammed, 29-year-old Somali-born U.S. citizen, drove cabs in Washington DC for three years before being suspected by the FBI of having links with Al-Shabaab, a terrorist group linked with the deadly Westgate Mall attack in Kenya in 2013 – where the attack lasted four days with dozens killed; among several other terrorist attacks across Africa.

Mohammed is accused by the FBI of providing material support to Al-Shabaab, and left the United States in the summer of 2012 to join the terrorist group in Somalia.

“Not only did he choose to go to Somalia and fight with Al Shabaab, he took a prominent role in trying to recruit people to fight for Al Shabaab,” said Carl Ghatas, special agent in charge of the counterterrorism division at the FBI’s Washington field office.

Speaking fluent English, Somali, and Arabic, Mohammed is said to be 6 feet tall and weighs a little below 200 pounds. The FBI warns that he may now go under multiple aliases and the public should watch out for him. Anyone with information that can lead to his arrest can submit it anonymously at tips.fbi.gov.
