On August 19, the Somali Abi R. (22) attacked the Iraqi refugee Nayyef A. (32) for no apparent reason. He pursued his fleeing victim with a knife and ultimately killed the man in a pizzeria. Now the asylum seeker gives information about his motive: “He insulted my religion, he had to die,” said the allegedly radical Muslim.
Nayyef’s sister Nadhifa (47) watched her brother bleed to death. She also suffered cuts on her head. No big surprise: a psychiatric expert has already certified the perpetrator as suffering from schizophrenia.
Abdi R. came to Germany in 2016 as an unaccompanied minor refugee. From the beginning there were problems with him. The African was often aggressive and would not be integrated – social workers despaired. At some point he was completely gone. According to “Bild”, he jetted to Austria at the time, among other places, where he also applied for asylum.
When he was back in Germany, his problems were even worse. Psychotic phases and short stays in psychiatry were the result. It is not known whether the Somali was taking medication for his illness. He is said to have attracted attention in his environment through regular marijuana consumption.
It was not until Thursday that the next knife attack with an alleged Islamist background in Germany shocked. In Ansbach (Bavaria), a man attacked passers-by with a knife for no reason, repeatedly shouting “Allahu Akbar”. He was eventually shot dead by police officers. “An Islamist background is being checked,” it says. The alleged perpetrator is a “man”. For tactical reasons, no one wants to give more details.
