A London man who rapped about beheading people and wearing suicide vests has been found guilty of planning a sword attack during the coronavirus lockdown.
The court learned that Sahayb Abu, 27, had bought bladed weapons and body armour from the internet in preparations for his terror attack last summer.
Commander Richard Smith described the defendant as a “very dangerous individual” and added: “There is no doubt in my mind that Sahayb had murderous intent, some of that was evidenced from the kind of things that he was posting online and sharing with others, including his brother.”
His brother, Muhamed Abu, 32, was cleared of his charge of failing to disclose information to authorities about his sibling’s plans.
The court also heard that some of their relatives had been linked to extremism in the past.
Sahayb will be sentenced at a later date.
