Watch: CHILD’S REMAINS found at Islamic compound armed by “Muslim extremists,” kidnapper son of co-conspirator in World Trade Center bombing


Siraj Ibn Wahhaj was arrested on Sunday for child abuse and kidnapping for taking his son to a compound in New Mexico, where he and one other man allegedly harbored two women and eleven total children. The Geller Report first reported on the Islamic compound here.

The boy’s mother told authorities the kidnapped boy suffers from seizures, cannot walk to due to severe medical issues and requires constant attention.

Siraj Ibn Wahhaj  believed his son was possessed by Jinns. Belief in Jinns, and other supernatural beings, is widespread in the Islamic world. Exorcism in Islam is called ruqya, and is thought to repair damage believed caused by sihr, witchcraft or evil eye Exorcisms today are part of a wider body of contemporary Islamic alternative medicine called al-Tibb al-Nabawi (Medicine of the Prophet).

Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said deputies arrested the father, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, and four other adults on child abuse charges after finding the 11 children inside a filthy makeshift compound in the tiny community of Amalia  armed by “Muslim extremists.” Sharia-compliant mainstream media outlets  have scrubbed all references to Islam to the story.

Siraj Ibn Wahhaj is the son of infamous imam Siraj Wahhaj.

  • Named as a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing
  • Invited Omar Abdel-Rahman, leader of a terrorist organization known as the Islamic Group, to address his congregation several times
  • Advocates the replacement of the U.S. government with an Islamic Caliphate
  • Supports violent Islamic jihad

Wahhaj was heavily armed with an AR-15 Rifle, five magazines and four loaded pistols at the time of the raid. FBI agents had surveilled the area a few weeks ago but did not find probable cause to search the property.  Starving and dead kids, and the FBI did not find probable cause.

Property owner Jason Badger said he and his wife had pressed authorities to remove the group from the makeshift compound on his land.

Despite numerous complaints and tips to law enforcement and then FBI they did nothing. Like their European counterparts,  they fear accusations of Islamophobia.

Three mothers of the 11 malnourished children found living in a filthy New Mexico Islamic compound were arrested and charged Sunday along with two men described as armed Muslim extremists.

Imam Siraj Wahhaj was a character witness for convicted 1993 World Trade Center bombing mastermind Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman.

  • The 11 children were rescued from the compound in Alamia, New Mexico, Friday
  • They were being held by Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 39, and his brother-in-law Lucas Morton
  • Wahhaj is the son of a World Trade Center bombing figure and has been missing since December when he vanished with his three-year-old disabled son AG 
  • Some of the children at the compound are believed to belong to him and his  wife who was also arrested 
  • AG, who is his son with another woman in Georgia, was not at the compound  
  • The other rescued children belong to his sisters, Hujrah and Subhanah Wahaj 
  • They were also found at the compound and have been charged with child abuse 
  • The charges against the five adults range from child abduction to child abuse and harboring a fugitive
  • None has been charged with any terror related offence but police described Wahhaj as ‘extremist of the Muslim belief’ 

This is the New Mexico compound where 11 children were found on Friday being held by their Muslim extremist father and uncle, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, along with their parents

CBS: Georgia authorities said Wahhaj was traveling through Chilton County on Dec. 13 with seven children and another adult when their car overturned. Wahhaj told police the group was traveling from Georgia to New Mexico to go camping.

The trooper who wrote the report said he found no camping equipment in or near the vehicle but that Wahhaj was in possession of three handguns, two rifles, a bag of ammunition, and a bulletproof vest. Wahhaj told the trooper that he owned the guns legally and had a Georgia permit to carry concealed weapons.

“Mr. Wahhaj seemed to be very concerned about his weapons and stated several times that they were his property and that he owned them legally,” the report said.

It was not immediately known Monday whether Wahhaj and the others charged in the child abuse case in New Mexico -another man and three women believed to be the mother of the 11 children – had retained attorneys. The public defender’s office in Taos County did not immediately return telephone message from The Associated Press seeking comment.

The Taos County sheriff identified the women facing charges as Jany Leveille, 38-year-old Hujrah Wahhaj, and 35-year-old Subhannah Wahha. They were arrested in the town of Taos and booked into jail.

A message that people were starving, believed sent by someone inside the compound, led to the discovery of the children ranging in age from 1 to 15. They were removed from the compound and turned over to state child-welfare workers.

The search at the compound came amid a two-month investigation in collaboration with Clayton County authorities and the FBI, according to Hogrefe.

He said FBI agents surveilled the area a few weeks ago but did not find probable cause to search the property.

That changed when Georgia detectives forwarded a message to Hogrefe’s office that initially had been sent to a third party, saying: “We are starving and need food and water.”

What authorities found was what Hogrefe called “the saddest living conditions and poverty” he has seen in 30 years on the job.

Other than a few potatoes and a box of rice, there was little food in the compound, which Hogrefe said consisted of a small travel trailer buried in the ground and covered by plastic with no water, plumbing and electricity.

Hogrefe said the adults and children had no shoes, wore dirty rags for clothing and “looked like Third World country refugees.”

AMALIA, N.M. — A New Mexico sheriff says searchers have found the remains of a boy on property where authorities raided a makeshift compound last week in search of a missing Georgia child. Eleven children were found Friday in filthy conditions with hardly any food.

Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said Tuesday that the remains were found after a search in Amalia. Authorities are awaiting a positive identification of the remains.

Authorities said the search for 4-year-old Abdul-ghani of Georgia led them Friday to the squalid compound where they found his father, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, four other adults and 11 children.

“We discovered the remains yesterday on Abdul’s fourth birthday,” Hogrefe said, appearing to fight back tears.

The sheriff said authorities returned to the compound after interviews Friday and Saturday. He said information he and other law enforcement agencies obtained led them to believe the boy might still be on the property.

“We had a good idea of a target location to look for the child.” he said.

CBS affiliate KRQE-TV reports that the malnourished children are in the custody of the state’s Children, Youth and Families Department.

The adults are facing child abuse charges.

Wahhaj was expected to appear in court Wednesday on a previous warrant from Georgia that seeks his extradition to face a charge of abducting his son, Abdul-ghani, from that state last December.


A look at the compound were 11 children where found living in squalid conditions.


In a court filing Monday, Abdul-ghani’s father told the boy’s mother before fleeing Georgia that he wanted to perform an exorcism on the child because he believed he was possessed by the devil. The boy’s mother said the boy can’t walk and requires constant attention.

Right before taking his son to New Mexico, Wahhaj told his then-wife, Hakima Ramzi, that he was taking his son, Abdul, to the park. According to The Telegraph, Abdul has developmental and cognitive delays, and often suffers from seizures.

The Telegraph also reports that Wahhaj told his wife he needed to perform an exorcism on the child, and that Abdul (who is unable to walk) was possessed by the devil.

The mother told police that Wahhaj took the boy for a trip to a park and never returned. Abdul-ghani was believed to have been at the Amalia compound as recently as several weeks ago, Hogrefe said.

The warrant said the boy suffered from severe medical issues including hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, a defect caused by lack of oxygen and blood flow around the time of birth.

Property owner Jason Badger said he and his wife had pressed authorities to remove the group from the makeshift compound on his land.

However, it took a plea for help and the search for the missing boy to finally draw sheriff’s deputies to the desolate site that was walled off by stacks of old tires, wooden pallets and other debris.

Badger said he had concerns about the compound near the Colorado border. But he says the courts and other authorities shot down his attempts to break up the encampment — described as a trailer buried in the ground in Amalia, just south of the New Mexico-Colorado line.

Court records show a judge dismissed an eviction notice filed by Badger against Lucas Morton in June. The records didn’t provide further details on the judge’s decision.

Morton was among the five adults arrested after the Taos County sheriff raided the compound. Children ages 1 to 15 were rescued from the compound that had been under investigation for months.

Hogrefe said FBI agents had surveilled the area a few weeks ago but did not find probable cause to search the property. An FBI spokesman didn’t immediately return a call by The Associated Press seeking comment.

Authorities staged a raid after someone believed to have been in the compound sent out a message for help that said: “We are starving and need food and water.”

It wasn’t clear who sent the message or how it was communicated. Georgia detectives forwarded the message to the Taos County Sheriff’s Office.

Wahhaj was armed with several guns, including a loaded AR-15 assault rifle, when he was taken into custody without incident at the compound, the sheriff said.

Morton was taken into custody on suspicion of harboring a fugitive.

Hogrefe said the adults and children had no shoes, wore dirty rags for clothing and “looked like Third World country refugees.”

The grandfather of the missing boy, Imam Siraj Wahhaj of Brooklyn, New York, issued a plea on Facebook for helping finding his grandson.

In a federal court filing in 2006, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj claimed he was harassed on his way to and from Morocco by customs agents at JFK Airport in New York because he is “the son of the famous Muslim Imam Siraj Wahhaj.”
