According to prosecutors, the Amelia, New Mexico compound where 11 children were rescued from squalor last week was being used to train the children to become school shooters.
“The father of a missing Georgia boy was training children at a New Mexico compound to commit school shootings, prosecutors said in court documents obtained Wednesday,” according to Associated Press. “The documents say Siraj Ibn Wahhaj was conducting weapons training with assault rifles at the compound near the Colorado border where 11 hungry children were found in filthy conditions.”
Ibn Wahhaj is the father of Abdul-ghani Wahhaj who went missing from Jonesboro, GA in December. The police believe that they have found the remains of the boy on the compound, but he has yet to be positively identified.
Ibn Wahhaj is described as a “Muslim extremist.”
Ibn Wahhaj was arrested at compund with another adult male, Lucas Morten. Three women were also arrested in connection with the compound raid. Hujrah Wahhaj, 38, Subhannah Wahhaj, 35, and Jany Leveille, 35, are now inmates in the Taos Adult Detention Center.
“For months, neighbors worried about the squalid compound built along a remote New Mexico plain, saying they took their concerns to authorities months before sheriff’s officials raided the encampment, described as a small camping trailer in the ground,” said AP.
Authorities said they found Ibn Wahhaj armed with multiple firearms, including an assault rifle, and that there was a shooting range on the site.
