Well this is unexpected.
You’d think throwing a Moslem into a prison filled with fellow jihadis would deradicalize him, but apparently the exact opposite happened instead.
Xeneral Imiuru, a 20-year-old man who convicted of murdering a nurse and mother of three with “industrial strength” acid, launched a terror attack on workers at Winchester Prison from his segregated cell last Thursday.
After being locked up for his heinous crimes in 2018, Imiuru reportedly became radicalized as he became close to jihadist prisoners. During the early hours of Thursday morning, he apparently faked his suicide in an attempt to lure unsuspecting officers into his cell. When the guards arrived to check on him, he lunged at them with a sharpened instrument, The Telegraph reports.
Luckily, no staff members were injured during the attack.
Imiuru represents Britain’s first convicted acid attack murderer, who in 2018 was convicted of murdering Joanna Rand, a 47-year-old nurse, and mother of three, with high-strength sulfuric acid.
“Police are investigating an incident at HMP Winchester on Feb 13. Violence against our hard-working staff will not be tolerated and those responsible will face tough punishment, including more time behind bars,” a spokesperson for the prison said.
