The FBI arrested a Detroit man at his home Tuesday morning on charges of allegedly providing money to ISIS, a terrorist organization.

Jibreel Pratt, 25, is charged with two counts of attempting to provide currency and monetary instruments to ISIS in March and May 2023, according to an indictment.

Pratt was scheduled to make an initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Detroit. The U.S. Attorney's Office said it will ask the judge to detain Pratt, arguing that he's a danger to the community and a flight risk.

“The indictment alleges that the defendant attempted to support and join ISIS, which is one of the most brutal terrorist organizations in the world," said Detroit U.S. Attorney Dawn Ison.

Cheyvoryea Gibson, head of the Detroit FBI, said:

“Mr. Pratt allegedly attempted to provide support to a foreign terrorist organization well known for committing violence and human rights violations."
