The news of Bahrun Naim’s alleged death has spread like wildfire throughout the social media. The terrorist is often linked to terror acts throughout Indonesia. He is also suspected to be the mastermind of the Thamrin bombings in Central Jakarta in January 2016.

Bahrun Naim is also known as the leader of Jemaah Ansarud Daulah, which is a terrorist recruitment organization that operates in Indonesia. He was said to have died in Abu Hamam on November 30, 2017, during a battle against Syrian armed forces.

Anies asserted that Bahrun’s immediate family is unaware of Bahrun’s current existence. “He claims to be in Syria,” said Anies.

However, he said that Bahrun Naim would sometimes call home, “his mother usually answers the calls,” said Anies.
