Ali Abdul-Majid of the Al-Hijra and Plot to Bomb Kenyan Parliament

unnamedAli Abdul-Majid, a member of Pumwani Riyadha Mosque, was profiled by anti-terrorism police in 2012 when the plan to bomb the Parliament of Kenya was hatched and detected by the Kenya intelligence service.

Ali Abdul-Majid who was then an employee of Parliamentary Service Commission facilitated surveillance on the target.

The parliament terror attack was effectively foiled by the National Intelligence Service (Then National Security Intelligence Service NSIS).

Upon disruption of the parliament terror attack, some members of Al-Hijra (formerly Muslim Youth Centre-MYC) cell from Majengo area Nairobi County threatened to kill Babatundo Taiwo, a Nigerian working for the United Nations in Gigiri, Nairobi.

Ali Abdul-Majid informed Al-Hijra members operating from the Pumwani Riyadha Mosque that Babatundo Taiwo exposed him (Ali Abdul Majid) as an Al-Shabaab operative stationed at parliament.
