Nigerian Lawmaker’s Son Shot Dead In London

Abraham Badru, the son of a House of Representatives member, Dolapo Badru, has been shot dead in the United Kingdom.

The deceased, 26, was killed late in the evening on Sunday, March 25, 2018.

He was murdered close to his family home in Dalston, Hackney. His death is the latest in a list of killings in London.

Reports of gunshot in the area had attracted the police who found him lying on a pavement. He was later confirmed dead minutes later.

According to the Evening Standard, young Badru earlier received a recognition for his heroics in the year 2015, “for saving a woman from a sex attack.”

He worked as a football coach after earning a Master’s degree in the same year.

Like most people who recognise the deceased, his father Dolapo offered an inspiring opinion about his late son.

“A few years ago a girl was raped on the estate and Abraham fought them off. He went to court to testify against them and the police gave him an award,” says the proud dad.

No arrest has been made, but Larry Smith, detective chief Inspector from Scotland Yard’s murder squad is appealing for information so they can establish the circumstances which led to Badru’s death.
