A JIHADI rapper has allegedly conspired to carry out a murderous terror attack during the first Covid lockdown.
Sahayb Abu, 27, used Covid’s interest to buy an 18-inch sword, armor, a Persian Qama knife, combat hat and gloves.
The rapper, who calls himself the ‘Masked Thief’, was convicted at Old Bailey last month for plotting to carry out an act of terror.
Today, he is detained for a minimum of 19 years.
His brother, Muhamed Munye Abu, 32, previously cried when he was acquitted for not disclosing Sahayb’s terrorist intentions to authorities.
Sahayb and Muhamed, were jailed for two years after being caught breaking into a jewelry store in February 2018.

Just weeks after his release last March, Sahayb began bragging about launching a terrorist attack after mingling with extremists in prison.
He used his £ 400 monthly allowance to buy a Persian Qama sword 18ins, a merchant’s knife, a balaclava and a camouflage hat, along with a combat vest.
But Sahayb is being watched in a joint police and MI5 operation is established after he is released from prison because of concerns about his “extreme thinking”.
Alarms sounded about threats he made online to kill the police and to research from famous embassies in London.
Sahayb used an alias on May 28 to comment on a YouTube video of a police murderer in the US.
‘WE WILL SEE WE DEAL’
He posted: “No one is supposed to be ** t about a dead policeman. That’s all they’re good for… Dead !! “
The jihad also describes London mayor Sadiq Khan as “semi-forced” and tells of soldier Lee Rigby who was murdered.
He said: “I was trying to see many of Lee Rigbys’s heads rolling on the ground, the man I shot dead a crowd because I was a night stalker, shot straight at a supporter Isis, reject democracy.
“Got my suicide vest, one click, boom and I’ll see you later.”
He was arrested at his father’s Chadwell Heath apartment on July 9 last year and police found a black ISIS flag in his bedroom closet.
The rapper claims his outrageous comments and songs are designed to impress girls and impress everyone.
Sahayb also strangely testified in court that he was trying to start an agricultural charity called “Islamic Growth” after watching a video by Alan Titchmarsh.
But his phone revealed that he had downloaded ISIS videos and was haunted by knife attacks.
Several relatives of Abu were also found to be involved in extremism in the past, it was revealed.
His half brothers Wail and Suleyman Aweys were killed after arriving in Syria to fight ISIS in 2015, at the age of 21 and 19.

Another son and daughter, along with her husband, were jailed for sharing extremist material, which declared “We are the inner enemy.”
Commander Smith, of Scotland Yard’s Counterterrorism Command, says it is “surprising” that so many people in the same family are involved in terrorism.
He warned the Covid pandemic did not prevent terrorists from planning violent action and the police and MI5 responded to the threat.
