UK: Iraqi illegal immigrant ‘wanted to become an ISIS jihadi after taking an instant dislike to living in Sheffield’

An Iraqi asylum seeker in Britain allegedly tried to join ISIS after six months because he did not like living in Sheffield, a court has heard.

Shivan Hayder Azeez Zanagana, 20, known as Aziz, lived with his brother in South Yorkshire between November 2015 and May this year, when he was arrested.

Aziz is said to have become homesick and missed his mother and siblings.

Aziz, who appeared at Westminster magistrates court on Friday, left Iraq after being injured in a car bomb explosion and entered the UK illegally in September, having travelled via Italy.

That’s gratitude for you.

    Maybe there is something about living in England that causes these tendencies?

    • Cameron would it for me.

    • Boris Badenov

      Perhaps it was the food and beverages?

    There won’t be a problem once Sheffield is more like Mecca.
