Adebolajo finished college and converted to Islam 10 years ago
One of the London slaying suspects has been on the watch of British government agencies for a while, sources are saying.As I reported, the man caught in the video above has been identified as Michael Adebolajo, whose father has emigrated from Nigeria.
He has been on the MI5 and police radars, NY Daily News mentions. Since no further information is provided, it appears that he was not dubbed a terrorist threat.
Like Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 28-year-old Adebolajo was not born into Islam, he converted to the faith.
Adebolajo got into the religious Islamic teaching after finishing college at the London University of Greenwich.
“He converted around 2003 to Islam, before I met him and I knew him as his convert name Mujaheed when he used to attend our demonstrations and lectures,” says cleric Anjem Choudary.
