re: #32 Mournie

Clearly there were missed signs and opportunities to pull this guy off the flight. His own father reported his fear that his son was ‘radicalized’.

Did he?
This statement from the family seems more like they were concerned because he cut off contact with them.

“Prior to this incident, his father, having become concerned about his disappearance and stoppage of communication while schooling abroad, reported the matter to the Nigerian security agencies about two months ago, and to some foreign security agencies about a month and a half ago, then sought their assistance to find and return him home. We provided them with all the information required of us to enable them do this. We were hopeful that they would find and return him home. It was while we were waiting for the outcome of their investigation that we arose to the shocking news of that day.

The disappearance and cessation of communication which got his mother and father concerned to report to the security agencies are completely out of character and a very recent development”
