Police in London have arrested seven people in connection with the killing of Alexander Kareem, brother of Khafi, a 2019 Big Brother Naija housemate.
The 20-year-old Alexander was shot dead on June 8, 2020 along Askew Road, Shepherd’s Bush in West London, United Kingdom, on his way to a friend’s house around 12:30am. He was was said to have been riding a scooter when his assailants attacked him.
The BBC said investigators from the Metropolitan police arrested five men — aged between 18 and 24 — a 16-year-old boy, and a 35-year-old woman on suspicion of being involved in the murder.
Speaking on the development, Wayne Jolley, a detective chief inspector who leads the investigation, said it is likely the murder is a case of mistaken identity. He urged anybody with information to assist the police in finding the killers.
It is understood that all the suspects have been taken into custody in London while a white Range Rover thought to be linked to the shooting was found burnt 25 minutes after the police were called.
