Abdi Hussein Ahmed, a/k/a “Abu Khadi” is a Kenyan citizen, born July 6 or 7, 1963, most recently residing in Mombasa, Kenya. According to a federal indictment, U.S. Ahmed and other coconspirators purchased and conspired to sell black and white rhinoceros horns and elephant ivory, including to a foreign buyer in the United States.
Additionally, according to a U.S. federal indictment, in or about August 2018 through about May 2019, Ahmed and others conspired to distribute at least 10 kilograms of heroin. After several meetings, Ahmed and his co-conspirators delivered the first kilogram of heroin, which was destined for the United States, to a buyer in Nairobi, Kenya.
Following a joint investigation between U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and the Drug Enforcement Administration, on May, 2019, a federal grand jury in the Southern District of New York returned an indictment charging Ahmed and other coconspirators, some of whom are citizens of Liberia, Kenya, and Guinea, with several offences. A Superseding indictment was returned in June 2021. The charges against Ahmed included one count of conspiracy to commit wildlife trafficking, two counts of wildlife trafficking, and one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute one kilogram or more of heroin. In June 2019, Ahmed fled from law enforcement, along with his co-conspirators and remains a fugitive.
