Lawal Olaniyi Babafemi will be extradited to the US on terrorism charges for providing leads to al Qaeda in the Arabian peninsula. “Since there is no form of any objection by the respondent, Lawal Olaniyi Babafemi aka Abdullah Ayatollah Mustapha, to the application for his extradition, this court is satisfied that the application by the Attorney General for the extradition of the respondent to the United States of America is proper and in accordance with the extradition Act 2004,” Federal High Court Judge Ahmed Mohammed ordered Wednesday, August 28, 2013. Babafemi, however, admitted to US federal agents that he made travels to Yemen and received $8,600 to recruit English speaking Nigerians for al Qaeda.
