Following the murder of Former BBNaija housemate, Khafi Kareem‘s brother, Alexander Kareem, seven suspects have been arrested.
Five men, aged 18 to 24, a boy, 16, and a woman, 34, were arrested in suspicion of the murder, and are in custody
Mr Kareem’s sister Khafi Kareem, a Met Police officer, said her brother’s life had “mattered”. Alexander had just been to a shop and was riding a scooter to a friend’s home when he was killed on Askew Road.
A white Range Rover, which had been seen speeding away from the crime scene, was later found burnt out.
Det Ch Insp Wayne Jolley said the arrests were a “significant development.”
I believe this murder to have been a case of mistaken identity, perpetrated recklessly and with no regard whatsoever for human life.
“We will continue to work hard to make sure those responsible are brought to justice.”
