Ridon Kola Wiki – Ridon Kola Biography

A 32-year-old man who authorities say supports radical Islamic extremism and seen in a social media post with an ax threatened to kill Yonkers police officers and the mayor at the Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day parade in New York, authorities said. Ridon Kola was arrested Friday before an attack on the parade could take place on Saturday, authorities said.

As alleged, Ridon Kola posted threats on social media against law enforcement, asserting his support for ISIS and his intent to assassinate numerous police officers,” US Attorney Damian Williams said in a statement. “Undeterred after questioning by law enforcement, Kola’s behavior escalated as he continued to assure police that his threats would be carried out. He will not tolerate threatening violence against police or undermining public safety.”

In a tweet, Mayor Mike Spano praised authorities for thwarting the threat. “Yonkers is proud to host one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day parades in New York, and threats like this will not intimidate us from celebrating the many contributions of our Irish American community,” he said.

Why did Ridon Kola arrested?

Details about Kola were released in an unsealed complaint alleging he has engaged in an escalation of threats of violence, including a threat against the Yonkers Police Department and the mayor at the Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day parade. The threats began appearing in messages sent to an official Yonkers Police Department social media account in November. One read in Albanian: “I’m going to kill you girls.”

The following month a message read: “Starting tomorrow I will start killing your officers just so they know who is doing it, Ridon Kola Albanian blood and I am going to kill your fat rat mayor.” Later, in an interview at his home, he admitted to detectives that he wrote the posts but said he would not harm the officers or the mayor. Despite that, police warned officers to exercise caution in their encounters with the suspect, authorities said.


Later, referring to the interview with the detectives, he sent a direct message to the Yonkers Police Department’s social media account, saying: “I am looking for that officer who came to my house and threatened to kill me and my family. I will burn the world until Vallahi [by God] finds it, no matter what happens to me, there will never be peace in this country again!”

He allegedly expressed his support for jihad, or war against non-Muslims, and proposed establishing a caliphate, or an Islamic state through violence and murder, according to court documents. In another post, Kola reportedly praised Sayfullo Saipov, recently convicted of terrorism and murder in connection with a truck attack in Manhattan that killed eight on Halloween 2017, court records show. Kola escalated the threats against him, authorities said.

“Now it’s personal America and the world!” and a threat to burn “fbi nsa cia police judges alive with their families too.” Kola’s social media account profile said on March 9, records show. That day he allegedly sent two direct messages to the YPD social media account:


“The first people to be crucified will be the Yonkers Vallahi rats. Allahu Ekberr”; and “I will crucify the Yonkers police officers and their bosses along McLean Avenue.” referring to part of the Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day Parade route that took place on Saturday and near where authorities said he lives. “It will be a horror scene. . . Allahu Ekberr.”

In a Sunday social media post of him, he had a picture of himself holding an ax with a statement in Albanian that read: “Come on Judas, I’m waiting for you.” A criminal complaint filed in federal court in New York accuses Kola of making threatening interstate communications. The charge carries up to five years in prison.Read More……
