The officers of the Metropolitan Police have arrested seven suspects in connection with the murder of BBNaija star, Khafi Kareem’s younger brother, Alexander who was shot dead in West London some weeks back.
The suspects include five men, aged 18 to 24, a boy, 16, and a woman, 34, who were nabbed in London and presently in police custody, according to multiple news reports.
The arrests came a few weeks to the burial of the deceased, whose sister, Khafi, a Met Police officer, had said that her brother’s life “mattered”.
Speaking on the development, Wayne Jolley, a detective chief inspector, 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,” the chief inspector said.
