"Alright. We've traced the delivery freighter to an outfit in Bosaso, Somalia. It's run by a nasty piece of work named Waraabe."
MacMillan in the cutscene before "Return To Sender".

Waraabe is a character in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 seen in "Return To Sender". He was the commander of the African Militia in Somalia.



Prior to the outbreak of international criminal by INTERPOL, Before Waraabe gathered the attention of the disavowed Task Force 141, he was a successful commander of the African Militia, wanted by INTERPOL for acts of terrorism, commercial piracy, human trafficking, arms smuggling, illicit drug smuggling, and criminal homicide. His influence spreads across Somalia, Sierra Leone and possibly elsewhere in Africa.

He was a successful commander of the Somali military and was a high-ranking member and leader of the African Militia having influence spread from Somalia, to Sierra Leone and possibly even other parts of Africa. As leader of the African Militia in Somalia, Waraabe had taken over parts of the country and took part in the genocidal conflict in the region targeting unknown rival ethnic groups.

Aiding Makarov Edit

Waraabe was contacted by the Ultranationalists and made an alliance with one of their leaders, Vladimir Makarov of the renegade Inner Circle faction. He became affiliated with Fregata Industries and helped smuggle conventional and chemical weapons to the Ultranationalists forces in Europe both Inner Circle insurgents and Russian Military personal.

His aid to the Russians ended up causing a series of chemical weapons attacks across Europe which left the continent defenseless and was later besieged and momentarily overrun and conquered by the Russian Military which poured into Western Europe and made it as far as the French capital of Paris itself. Following the attack, an investigation was done and Waraabe was found out to have ties to Makarov and helped supply him and the other Ultranationalists with the chemical weapons that left Western Europe open and exposed to the Russian invasion.

Somalia Capture and DeathEdit

He was the commander of his local militia in Bosaso, Somalia. He was searched by Task Force 141 due to his involvement in the creation of the chemical weapons Vladimir Makarov used in Europe.[1] He was caught and interrogated by Soap, Price and Yuri.

Price threw a gas canister on the floor, commanding the other two to put gas masks on, and giving a spare mask to Waraabe only if he told them about Makarov. When he reveals the truth about Makarov's shipment, Price tosses a gas mask to him, but proceeds to execute him with a Desert Eagle, saying "This is for the boys at Hereford".
