The wife of Jacob Muriithi, the 30-year-old Oklahoma City man who was arrested for allegedly threatening to behead his coworker last week, has created a GoFundMe account to free her husband–who she claims is not a Muslim but a devoted Catholic.
The page created by Hollie Muriithi has requested ten thousand dollars in donations and insists Jacob is innocent:
Hello everyone! I am here asking for your support to help bring my husband and the father of our child back home. He was taken into custody, and is being charged as of right now as an muslim terriost. We all know this is not for we are devoted Catholics and I want to clear his name and bring him back home to his family where he belongs, and can feel save while we go through this hardship. I am asking for your help because the attorney fees and the bonds are extremely high. My family and I have been able to raise money but we are not able to raise all of it. I am here to ask for your support, and we know some will not be able to help but I ask you still spread the word and continue to pray for us. I want to thank everyone for taking time to look at this and ask that you please pray for our family.God Bless you all.
So far, she has raised more than one thousand dollars of the ten thousand she has requested and this is her most recent update from today.
I just got done talking to Jacob and he is so thankful for all the people behind him. He wants to personally thank each and everyone one of you! God bless you all.
Muriithi is behind bars on a complaint of terrorism and his bond is set at $1 million.
