Manhattan Terrorist Sayfullo Saipov Pledged Allegiance to ISIS – New Details Emerge in NYC Islamist Attack

New details have emerged in relation to Manhattan terrorist Sayfullo Saipov. As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, the 29-year-old Uzbek national immigrated under former President Obama in 2010. According to his driver’s license, Saipov was once a Florida resident. 

NBC News reporter Tom Winter reports a note written by Saipov pledging his allegiance to ISIS was found.

“New York terror suspect left a note behind in the rental truck pledging his allegiance to ISIS, @jonathan4ny reports,” tweeted Winter.

A friend of Saipov claims the terrorist is a “very friendly,” person who drives Uber.

“He is very good guy, he is very friendly… he is like little brother… he look at me like big brother,”Saipov’s friend Kobiljon Matkarov told the New York Post.

Shocked that his friend killed 8 people in New York City’s deadliest terror attack since 9/11, Matkarov added “He no like that.”

New York Post report:

Kobiljon Matkarov, 37, met suspected terrorist Sayfullo Saipov in Florida about five years ago shortly after Saipov came from Uzbekistan– the two connected over their mutual heritage.

Matkarov had a trip planned to Uzbekistan in June and was flying out of JFK with his five children and wife– he reached out to Saipov for a ride because he was nearby.

“He dropped me to the airport with my family… I called him and said I needed a ride.”

Matkarov said Saipov got along well with his five kids, who enjoyed playing with him.

“My kids like him too, he is always playing with them. He is playing all the time,” Matkarov remembered.

PIX reports Saipov has a girlfriend and three children living in Paterson, New Jersey.

CBS News reports Saipov was booked after failing to appear in Mo. traffic case in 2016.
