Mohamed Abdullahi Hassan, one of the FBI’s nine most wanted terror fugitives who reportedly was in contact with the San Bernardino terrorist couple who killed 14 people last week, surrendered Sunday in Somalia’s capital city Mogadishu, KTSP reported.

Hassan, a former student at Roosevelt High School in Minneapolis was federally indicted in 2009 by a grand jury and accused of leaving the city to join the terrorist organization al-Shabaab before graduating from high school in 2008.

According to reports, Hassan tweeted about jihad and called for violence on behalf of the Islamic State under the name “Mujahid Miski.”

“Miski, born in Somalia, is a lawful permanent resident of the United States and is in the custody of the Somali National Intelligence and Security Agency in Mogadishu,” a state department spokesman told KTSP Monday. “The U.S. Mission to Somalia is discussing this case with the Somali federal government. The United States does not have an extradition agreement with Somalia.”
