Abdul Khabir Wahid lived in Phoenix, Arizona, and was a friend of Elton Francis Simpson and Nadir Hamid Soofi. Simpson and Soofi were killed during their armed attack of the so-called Mohammad Art Exhibit and Contest in Garland, Texas. During the FBI's investigation following the attack, Wahid allegedly lied to FBI officials by saying that Simpson and Soofi had only discussed soup and Wahid's children during their last visit. According to the FBI, Simpson and Soofi gave Wahid an envelope with a key inside and instructions to deliver the envelope to someone else. Wahid also allegedly told another witness, identified in court documents only as "A.S.," to withhold information from the FBI.
