Muslim extremist Michael Adebolajo, 31, has been described by prison officer as “violent, unpredictable and a major danger to other prisoners”.
But the real threat he poses is his ability to radicalise other inmates, prison sources have revealed. Dozens of prisoners have said to have fallen for Adebolajo’s twisted version of Islam and have vowed to become Jihadis when they are eventually freed. Even non-Muslim prisoners are said to have converted to Islam and sworn an allegiance to Islamic State after being radicalised by the killer.
One prison official said: “Adebolajo spends most of his waking hours preaching his distorted form of Islam to anyone who will listen. He sees every inmate as a potential Islamic State soldier whether they are Muslims or not. He has a big personality and is very charismatic and some of the more vulnerable prisoners will fall under his spell. He is a very dangerous individual.”
The source said that Adebolajo now sees his role in life to recruit as many Jihadis as possible for the remainder of his life. He added: “If he is suspected of trying to radicalise other inmates we step in and move him… But even in prison Adebolajo cannot be watched all the time. We don’t have the staff or the resources.”
It is understood that Adebolajo has been given “special category” status because of the danger he represents.
In August 2016, a report found that political correctness was to blame for the flourishing of Islamic extremism in prisons, with guards reluctant to confront Muslim inmates for fear of being branded ‘Islamophobic’.
What a tragedy! With his charisma he'd have made an incredible Mary Kay salesman.
What exactly is distorted about Rigby's killers' preaching of Islam? He is doing just as his "prophet" Mohammed did. After 1,400 years of this behavior, you'd think we'd catch on that murder, rape, mutilation, slavery, and general mayhem is part and parcel of Islam.
No surprise really. It's not like we haven't had ample evidence of prison radicalization for over a decade or something. Even the Saudis and Egyptians have taken notice and work to decrease that. If they're unwilling to execute the prisoners, then they need to isolate them and deprogram them. It really doesn't shock me that there are many that refuse to learn despite plenty of evidence.
