Since 2016, the U.S. State Department has offered a reward of up to $25 million for information or intelligence leading to his capture or death. Making him one of the most wanted terrorists in the world.
After the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, al-Baghdadi helped found the militant group Jamaat Jaysh Ahl al-Sunnah wa-l-Jamaah (JJASJ), in which he served as head of the sharia committee. Al-Baghdadi and his group joined the Mujahideen Shura Council (MSC) in 2006, in which he served as a member of the MSC’s sharia committee. Following the renaming of the MSC as the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) in 2006, al-Baghdadi became the general supervisor of the ISI’s sharia committee and a member of the group’s senior consultative council.

The US Department of Defense said al-Baghdadi was imprisoned at Compound 6, which was a medium security Sunni compound.
