The Islamic State executioner known as Jihadi John has allegedly fled the militant group’s territory and gone on the run in Syria.

Sources told British newspaper The Mirror that Mohammed Emwazi was terrified by the publicity he received after he was identified as the murderer of British and American hostages in some of the militant group’s videos and feared he was being hunted down.

The newspaper reported that the British radical is on the run because he is afraid he is no longer valuable to the Islamic State group.

British and American special operations forces are in Iraq and Syria with the objective to find the 26-year-old Londoner dead or alive, The Mirror reported.
