Akel whose real name is Wan Mohd Aquil Wan Zainal first joined the ISIS when the conflict started in Syria.

He is thought to have gone to Syria to take part in the war against the Bashir Al Asad regime.

He is suspected to have been behind the recruitment of female students from local universities in Malaysia to join the ISIS in Syria.

One student from the Kolej University Islam Antarabangsa Selangor (KUIS), Syamimi Faiqah ran-off to Syria to marry him.
