Reports have claimed that the Al-Shabab Jihadist, known as Abu Mansur Al-Amriki, or ‘Omar Hammami’, was seen Saturday taking part a prayer congregation at ‘Jaamacul Qadiim’ mosque in central Kismayu town, just 500 Km away south of Mogadishu.

According to Al shabab leader who spoke with Keydmedia Somali in Kismayu said that Omar Hammami has been offered for amnesty by a court run by the insurgents for his posting a video on the internet, telling that members of terror group al-Shabab may kill him.

Hammami’s live appearance would be a blow and contradictory to U.S central intelligence agency officials who confirmed reports that Alabama-born Omar Hammami, the leader of an al Qaeda aligned terrorist group, has been beheaded in Somalia by his fellow militants.

On 14 march, Last month Hammami has released a video in which he admitted to fearing for his life saying that members of Al-Shabab may kill him over differences of opinion.

In February last year it was rumoured that he had died in heavy fighting in Mogadishu during the anti-insurgent offensive. Hammami, who goes by the name of Abu Mansur al-Amriki joined the terror group of Al shabab in Somalia in October 2007 when he was in his early twenties.
