GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A Lansing man has been sentenced for conspiring to send aid to ISIS.

Mohamed Salat Haji, 28, was sentenced to spend 130 months (nearly 11 years) in federal prison, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Western District of Michigan.

We’re told Haji was arrested at Gerald R. Ford International Airport in January 2019 after helping his cousin register for a flight bound for Somalia. His cousin, Muse Muse, reportedly intended to join ISIS once there.

Haji pleaded guilty to the conspiracy charge in June 2021, officials say.

Last month, Muse Muse was sentenced to 78 months behind bars, and their relative, Mohamud Muse, was sentenced to 98 months.
