    A terror suspect who ‘plotted to assassinate Prime Minister Theresa May had recorded a pledge to ISIS, bought a rucksack AND recced Downing Street’, a court heard today.

    Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, faces trial next summer over the alleged bomb and knife attack plot.

    He had been charged with preparing acts of terrorism following his arrest on November 28.

    According to the charge, he conducted reconnaissance of the target location, recorded a pledge of allegiance, purchased a rucksack, delivered a rucksack and bag to be fitted with an improvised explosive device and collected it “with a view to committing attacks against persons in the UK”.

    The defendant – who is originally from Bangladesh but was living in Finchley, north London – also allegedly assisted 21-year-old Mohammad Aqib Imran in his terror plans.

    On or before November 28, he recorded and sent to Imran “a sponsorship video in order for him to be accepted by Islamic State”, the charge says.

    Imran – who is from the Sparkbrook area of Birmingham – allegedly tried to join ISIS and faces a charge of preparing acts of terrorism.

    His charge alleges he saved money to pay for a fake passport and travel to Libya, communicated with another online and sent two photos of his passport data to secure a fake passport.

    He made online research into travel options and terrorist publications and had an Islamic State sponsorship video sent by Rahman, the charge says.

    He also downloaded “How to survive in the West – a Mujahid’s guide 2015”, it is claimed….
