Canada: Muslim arrested in Ft McMurray faces extradition to US for terrorism-related prosecution

The United States is seeking the extradition of a man arrested in Alberta earlier this month for prosecution for terrorism-related offences.

Abdullahi Ahmed Abdullahi was arrested Sept. 14 by RCMP. He was wanted on the extradition warrant, as well as for his alleged role in an armed robbery at an Edmonton jewelry store in 2014.

“The United States has sought the extradition of Abdullahi Ahmed Abdullahi for prosecution for terrorism-related offences,” federal Justice Department spokesman Derrick Pieters said in an email Tuesday.

The U.S. Department of Justice did not respond to questions about the allegations Abdullahi faces in that country.

A search of Alberta court records indicates Abdullahi, 32, has no previous charges or convictions in the province, aside from the robbery charge.

Abdullahi appeared by video conference on the extradition matter in Edmonton’s Court of Queen’s Bench on Sept. 15, and was expected to appear again Friday morning. He was also expected to appear in provincial court Friday for a bail hearing on the robbery charge.

Abdullahi is being represented by Edmonton criminal defence lawyer Akram Attia, who declined to comment on the case.

The case file has been sealed by the court.

A family residing at an Edmonton address connected to Abdullahi in provincial court documents declined to comment Thursday.

The warrant for the armed robbery charge was issued Sept. 12, according to provincial court records. When Abdullahi was arrested two days later, two other co-accused in the robbery case were also taken into custody.

The two men — Said Mohamed Abdulkadir, 24, and Abdikadir Abdullahi, 30 — have not been linked to Abdullahi Ahmed Abdullahi’s extradition case.

All three men face one count of robbery with a firearm in connection to a jewelry store heist Jan. 9, 2014.

Abdikadir Abdullahi is also charged with one count of weapons possession for a silver handgun and one count of assault with a weapon. He was ordered released on bail following a hearing Monday and is next scheduled to appear in provincial court on the robbery matter Oct. 10.

Said Mohamed Abdulkadir was expected to be in provincial court Friday for an appearance in the robbery case.

  1. Send this idiot packing, we do not need the Criminal inbred Idiot in our Country!
    Islam is a Cancer, as thus it must be Eradicated, World Wide ASAP!
    Islam is NOT a religion, maybe a cult at most, but more of a Political system then a Religion
    Since the start of islam, 270 million People have been killed by muslims world wide, it is not a religion of peace.
    To back up my facts watch this video and see for yourself – https://youtu.be/t_Qpy0mXg8Y

  2. Excuse me but there is a line that is very disturbing here, please avoid in the future. “A search of Alberta court records indicates Abdullahi, 32, has no previous charges or convictions in the province, aside from the robbery charge.” It’s like saying, aside from all his numerous crimes, this criminal has no previous charges or convictions. Please give me a break.

  3. Unless I read this incorrectly, this scumbag is out on bail!!!??? If so, can they really expect him to show up??? Why is he not still in prison awaiting extradition??? Silly Canadians think he’ll be there on October 10th. I seriously doubt this terrorist will ever see the inside of an American jail!
