The young man, of Iraqi-Kurdish decent, is nicknamed ‘Osama Bin Bieber’ after Canadian pop star Justin Bieber due to his young appearance.
Hadi claims that extremist clerics at a religious school in the city had radicalized him and persuaded him to travel to the Middle East, alongside three other men.
There are Instagram pictures, posted by Hadi, that show him holding guns and tweets claiming that he is in Syria with ‘Dawla’, another name for ISIS.
