Arafat Nagi’s first trip, in 10/2012, only lasted one day due to a medical issue, but the second trip took place, in 07/2014, and lasted 10 days, according to William Hochul, The U. S. Attorney on the case in a press conference in Buffalo, New York . The complaint also alleges that the Lackawnna community said that Nagi espouses violent jihad and believed that he constituted a threat to those in the U.S. According to authorities he was working alone in the USA .
According to the criminal complaint against Arafat Nagi, officials were first tipped off about his jihadi dreams from ‘a person previously convicted of terrorism offenses who is cooperating with the government.’
Arafat Nagi has a criminal history in the area — including a 2013 incident which placed him on police radar — he was accused of threatening to behead one of his children,a 19 -year-old daughte .
