Somtochukwu Okwuoha, a 26-year-old Nigerian Masters student at Dundee University, has been found guilty of making terrorist threats against the school.
According to the BBC, Okwuoha claimed to have enlisted ISIS for a bombing plot against the university and expressed intentions to carry out a chemical attack on the city.
The international energy studies student, who asserted having a military background, faces seven charges, including threatening mass murder, using biological weapons, and making bomb threats.
Witnesses testified that Okwuoha sent emails detailing his plans to university staff, causing widespread alarm.
Retired director of student services, Keith Mackle, revealed that staff received emails containing chilling threats, such as,
“Expect a massive bomb explosion at the University of Dundee. I have contacted Isis terrorists to plant bombs on campus,
“I can assure you staff and students will die in great numbers. 9/11 will be a joke compared to what will happen.
“Blood will spill and flesh will be scattered.”
Okwuoha also allegedly targeted specific individuals, accusing an accommodation officer of racism and expressing a desire to harm Scottish people as revenge.
