A 21-year-old man has been charged with the murder of Badri Issa in Moss Side
He is due to appear at Manchester Magistrates Court today.
A 21-year-old man has been charged with the murder of Badri Issa in Moss Side last week, it has been confirmed.
Greater Manchester Police (GMP) has confirmed today that the man – who has been named as 21-year-old Raami Mohamed, of Fairly Lane in Manchester – has now subsequently been charged following his arrest, and has been remanded into custody.
Mohamed is due to appear at Manchester Magistrates Court today (31 October).
His charges come after police were called to a report of a man with a serious stab wound on Moss Lane East in Moss Side just before 8pm on Wednesday last week (25 October), and when officers and accompanying emergency services arrived at the scene, they found Badri Issa with “life-threatening injuries”.
Issa, aged 22, was taken to hospital shortly after, but despite the best efforts of all involved, the young man sadly died later that evening.
Speaking as a man has been charged with Issa’s murder, Detective Chief Inspector Andy Naismith, of GMP’s Major Incident Team, said: “Even though a man has been charged with the sad murder of Badri Issa, this investigation is still very much ongoing and I continue to encourage further witnesses or anyone who has any information to please come forward.
“We arrested a second man on suspicion of murder yesterday, who remains in police custody and the team of detectives are pursuing lines of enquiry, and a third man, aged 21, who was arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice was bailed last night for further enquiries.”
DCI Naismith has also encouraged the Greater Manchester public to continue coming forward with any information they have in relation to this case.
He continued: “We understand that coming forward with information is nerve wracking, but we urge you to do the right thing so we can provide answers for Badri’s family.”
