59 year old Sunday Dare, the grandfather of a boy soldier (‘Jihadi Junior’) who appears in a new ISIS execution video has begged his notorious British jihadi daughter to bring him home.
22 year old Grace , of Christian and Nigerian descent left her London home in 2012 to enter into an arranged marriage and live in Syria with her husband.
Mr Dare told Channel 4 News he had reported her to the police on three occasions before she left for Syria, telling them:
- “She’s behaving in a very funny way”. “They told me she’s free,” he added. “They said she’s above 18.”
Sunday Dare, 59, is begging Grace, known as ‘Khadijah’, to bring the boy home.
Mr Dare told the Sun:
- “Grace, Grace, come home with my grandchildren. “Come home, we love you, come and face the music. You caused it yourself, you’ve got to face the music.”
She achieved celebrity status in Islamic State after vowing to become the first female Islamic State fanatic to behead a British or US hostage.
In a video unearthed by The Mirror in 2014, burka-clad Dare fired an AK-47 rifle and pleaded with fellow Brits to fight by her side in Syria.
A security source said at the time:
- “The threat Dare poses is immense. “Her notoriety has evolved so rapidly that she has achieved a celebrity like status among jihadists fighting in Syria and those who are thinking of travelling abroad to join IS.”
“The threat from homegrown would-be terrorists such as her is very great. Dare has now become a top priority.”
