‘NIGERIAN MUSLIM CONVERT’ HELD BY POLICE AFTER NORTH LONDON BEHEADING
The man believed to have ‘decapitated‘ 82-year-old Palmira Silva in a suburban garden in North London has been informally identified by locals as a 25-year old recent ‘Muslim convert’, with one neighbour saying: “He was a black man young about 25 to 30 wearing all black, black t-shirt and jeans, about 5’10” and looked like he went to the gym”.
Police disabled and arrested the man on Nightingale Road in Edmonton, London after he rampaged through back gardens with a large, curved blade that has been described as a ‘machette’. A taser weapon was discharged, and a number of police officers received injuries including a broken wrist and cuts during the operation to safeguard locals and arrest the suspect.
The Daily Mail reports that locals claim the killer is known as “Fat Nicholas”, a heavily tattooed Nigerian with “a big belly and tattoos and he walks the streets sticking his fingers up at people like Somalis”.
As Homicide and Serious Crime officers are in the process collecting evidence, speaking to the family of the deceased and waiting to speak to the suspect who is under guard in a North London hospital, official details have been sparse and the police have not been willing to speculate on the motive.
A police commander speaking at a press conference yesterday said: “based on what we know, we do not believe this was a terror related incident”
So what is it? Ignorance? Cowardice? If you can’t even name the enemy, you certainly can’t defeat him. ~ TD
