Albader Parad was a senior leader of Abu Sayyaf, a group of Islamic militants in the Philippines with links to al-Qaeda. He led the kidnapping of three International Committee of the Red Cross workers in 2009 and was implicated in the 2000 Sipadan kidnappings, where 20 foreign tourists and a Filipino were abducted from the Sipadan Island Diving Resort in Sandakan, Sabah in Malaysia.[2]

Parad was among Abu Sayyaf personalities wanted by the United States government, which had earmarked a 1 million reward for his neutralization. The Philippine government had also placed a 7 million bounty on his head.[3]

Armed Forces of the Philippines units composed of Philippine Marines clashed with Abu Sayyaf forces in Jolo, killing Parad and five others on 21 February 2010.[4]
