The 20-year-old was heard by the Old Baileys Criminal Court in London. According to the prosecution, Na”imur Rahman arrested in November 2017 wanted to “make the headlines” by going to the residence of the Prime Minister, at a time when she would address the press outside the building.
“Before his arrest stopped him, he thought he was only a few days away from achieving his goal, which was nothing less than committing a suicide attack on Downing Street,” VOA quoted prosecutor Mark Heuwood as saying.
Rahman’s plot was foiled by a security agent pretending to be a member of ISIS.
“I’m going to try to kill Theresa May,” he wrote in a conversation about Telegram messaging with the police officer
Rahman had to run to the door with the intention of tearing Theresa May’s head. He had asked another policeman under cover to provide him with an explosive belt and a sword.
The latter was encouraged in his plot by an uncle who joined ISIS in Syria.
