The police in the United Kingdom has offered a whopping amount to anyone who would give reliable information concerning fatal shooting of a lawmaker's son in the country.
Six months on from the fatal shooting of 26-year-old Abraham Badru in Hackney, officers continue to appeal for help from the public in catching his killers and piecing together details of Abraham’s life.
The graduate son of House of Representatives member, Hon. Enitan Dolapo Badru, representing Lagos Island, was shot dead near his family’s London home.
Abraham Badru shot near his home in the UKA £20,000 (over N9.5 million) reward remains on offer for anyone with information leading to the arrest and prosecution of those responsible for the murder.
Police were called on Sunday, 25 March to Ferncliff Road, E8, following reports of gunshots heard. Abraham, a personal trainer, was found suffering from shotgun injuries. He died at the scene from a shotgun wound to the chest.
Moments after the shooting, a black male believed to be wearing a black Puffa-type jacket made off from the scene on foot, before getting on a bicycle; he had rucksack on his back. The bicycle is described as white and didn’t have any lights.
Detectives investigating the murder have taken 163 statements, followed up over 600 lines of inquiry and viewed 200 hours of CCTV footage – this has been a challenge in itself with some video formats taking hours to view 10 minutes of footage.
Officers believe there are still a number of witnesses to be traced and they have released a timeline of Abraham’s final movements in a bid for them to come forward.
Abraham Badru, 26, who was given a police bravery award as a teenager for saving a woman from a sex attack, was gunned down in the street.
His mother said the murder of her  only child was a revenge for stopping the gang rape of a girl child when he was just 14. The devastated mother said Late Abraham feared for his life after he gave evidence to convict and jail nine boys who gang r-ped a 14-year-old schoolgirl.
Relatives of the rapists threw eggs at the Badrus’ home and made threatening phone calls to terrify Abraham, then 16, because he had imprisoned their loved ones.
