Umar Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian suspect who allegedly tried to blow up a passenger jet in Detroit Dec 25, was sexually frustrated and had jihad fantasies, a media report said. Abdulmutallab, 23, tried to detonate explosives hidden in his underwear on a Northwest Airlines flight approaching Detroit from Amsterdam on Christmas Day. The Sun said Wednesday that Abdulmutallab is a sexually frustrated loner who nurtured fantasies about holy war. A message posted on an Islamic web forum in 2005 by the bomber said: "I won't go into too much details about me fantasy, but basically they are jihad fantasies. "I imagine how the great jihad will take place, how the Muslims will win insha'Allah (God willing) and rule the whole world, and establish the greatest empire once again!" In another, he complained of being depressed during his days at a boarding school in Togo. He said he never found a true Muslim friend. And he added: "As I get lonely, the natural sexual drive awakens and I struggle to control it, sometimes leading to minor sinful activities. This problem makes me want to get married to avoid getting aroused." Nigerian-born Abdulmutallab spent three years in Britain as a mechanical engineering student at University College London. While earlier he loved football, his stance later changed. He wrote in early 2005: "Liverpool is my chosen club", though he rated Chelsea's "classy" Frank Lampard as a better player than Liverpool idol Steven Gerrard. But in a a web discussion about football, he later commented: "I honestly don't think the Prophet would sit back, relax and enjoy watching Beckham kick the ball around. "I think football is a doubtful matter... let's save our honour and religion and try and stay away from football."
