TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Saefullah, one of the high-ranking members of the Jamaah Ansharut Daulah terror group in Indonesia, is wanted by the police's anti-terror squad Densus 88. Saefullah, who also goes by the name Daniel Chaniago, is believed to be linked to the JAD's numerous acts of terrors in many countries.

He is known to have resided in Khorasan, Afghanistan.

The police believe is tasked with managing terrorism fund from five countries; Trinidad and Tobago, the Maldives, Venezuela, Germany and Malaysia.

"The money was wired through Western Union,” the Police Headquarters' chief of information bureau Brig. Gen. Dedi Prasetyo said on Friday, June 26.

Dedi said that from March 2016 to September 2017 JAD received more than Rp400 million from members in those five countries.  

In addition to funding terror attacks, Saefullah also uses the money to buy weaponries and fund members to travel to Khorasan, Afghanistan.

This week, Densus 88 will talk and exchange information with representatives of several foreign embassies to uncovering JAD's financial networks.

The police seek to establish cooperation with authorities of neighboring countries to track down the transfer of funds to Saefullah a.k.a. Daniel a.k.a. Chaniago. He is suspected of being one of the people in charge of the JAD network in Indonesia.

The Indonesian police are also collaborating with the Filipina police to track down Andi Baso, a JAD member suspected of launching a bomb attack at the Oikumene Church in Samarinda in 2016. It is believed that he is now in South Philippines.
