Four suspects have been arrested by the Metropolitan Police in connection with the fatal shooting of Nigeria’s Alex Ajanaku in North London.

Detectives investigating the murder said they have arrested four men, on suspicion of conspiracy in the murder of Ajanaku.

According to the police following a series of warrants carried out in east and north London on Tuesday 21 and Wednesday 22 March, two men (both 22 years) and 23-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice, while a 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

The police said all four men had been released on bail until a date in June, saying that Alex’s family had been updated about these arrests.

Alex was 18-years-old when he was fatally shot on the Beaumont Estate in Leyton, E10 at about 01:25hrs on Wednesday, 1 September 2021.

Detectives believe Alex had been at an unlicensed music event on the Beaumont Estate on the evening of Tuesday, 31 August. The majority of people had left the area by the time of the incident, but a small group remained and were sitting on a bench when shots were fired.

The police said the vehicle that is believed to have been used to commit the murder was a black Kia Sportage which had been stolen from Chingford shortly before midnight on Monday, 16 August 2021, saying on 3 September, 2021, it was found abandoned and fire damaged in Walthamstow, E17.

The police added that a reward of up to £20,000 continued to be offered by the Met for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person(s) responsible for Alex’s murder.

Detective Sergeant Fenton Davis, of the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: “We remain as committed as ever to getting justice for Alex and his family. We have not forgotten Alex and we are determined to bring those responsible for his murder to justice.

“I hope with the passage of time, witnesses may now feel able to come forward. At the time of Alex’s murder I said there are people out there with information and I believe that is still true.

“A year and a half is a long time to carry around information about the death of a young man with his whole life ahead of him, please do the right thing and tell us what you know. Alex’s family deserve to know the truth. You do not have to speak directly to police, you can share what you know anonymously with independent charity Crimestoppers.”
