The Kenyan government has extradited two British nationals who were arrested in Kilimani on Jan 26 to the UK to face trial over murder.
Monteiro Tariq Kennedy Mangal, 21, and Mohamud Siyad Abdihakim, 24, are the prime key in the murder of a 16-year-old boy identified as Alex Smith, from Wembley, in north-west London following an attack on August 12, 2019. The two were arrested following an international arrest warrant which was issued against them.
Kenya’s DCI stated that the suspects stabbed the deceased twice before fleeing the United Kingdom.
The statement read;
“Smith was attacked on August 12, 2019, in Munster Square, by a rival group of six men who were driving in two stolen vehicles, a Ford Fiesta and a Seat Leon.
“Metropolitan police who have been looking for the suspects believe that one of the two arrested fugitives carried out the actual stabbing, while the other one was driving one of the stolen cars.
“The two had been hiding in Nairobi’s upmarket Kilimani suburbs while on the run, in an attempt to escape justice back in the U.K.During the arrest, Tariq was found in possession of a Somali identification card in the name of Abdulahi Abshir Mohamed and a dagger.”
Yusuf Yusuf and Arif Biomy, are already serving their sentences in England in connection with the murder incident.
