Hitman guilty of double murder

A hitman who shot dead an innocent mother-of-nine and her sleeping nephew is facing life in prison after it took five trials to convict him of the double murder

Image

Obina Ezeoke, 28, snuck into the East Finchley home of Annie Ekofo, 53, in the early hours of the morning and shot dead student Bervil Kalikaka-Ekofo, 21, as he slept.

Ezeoke then turned the gun on Mrs Efoko when she rushed out of her bedroom to investigate the disturbance.

The drug dealer was first put on trial over the September 2016 double murder in 2017, but the case had to be aborted due to the judge being struck down with chronic back pain.

Juries in the re-trial and a third trial were deadlocked on their verdicts and a fourth trial was ordered, but that was then abandoned when the coronavirus crisis struck.

At the Old Bailey this morning, a fifth jury finally delivered guilty verdicts against Ozeoke, condemning him to two mandatory life sentence.

The court has heard that the shooting may have been a revenge hit after footage of Ezeoke was shared on social media, but the intended target is believed to have been Ms Ekofo's son Ryan Efey. Ezeoke insisted in his defence case that he was not the gunman.

Mark Heywood QC described how “an assassin crept noiselessly into a second-floor family home” as six occupants slept.

He said: “The killer moved to his left and into a bedroom. There ahead of him was a young man, sleeping on a thin mattress on the floor under a duvet.

“For the killer this was as good a target as he could expect – a young man of the house of just the right age.

“He crept forward, gun in hand. He raised the muzzle and placed it almost against the back of the sleeping, dreadlocked head.

“And then, with a deliberation and purpose that was as much cowardly as it was murderous, he pulled the trigger.”

After Ezeoke had unleashed “hell”, Mrs Ekofo went into the hall, dressed only in her underwear, jurors were told. Instead of waving his revolver to scare her off, the killer pulled the trigger for a second time, the court heard.

Mr Heywood told jurors that “cowardly” Ezeoke had gone to the flat deliberately to kill one of the teenage boys in the family as “part of a vendetta of violence”.

He said: “His hate was such that he did not falter when confronted by a second person – he simply took her life as well.

“In fact both lives were innocent. The young man he killed was a cousin, visiting at short notice, for one night only.”

Ezeoke had admitted dealing in Class A drugs, and said he was the victim of a serious assault in 2014, after which he switched to dealing cannabis instead.

The key evidence against him centred around firearms residue found in Ezeoke’s car, which was used in the getaway, and on his top recovered from a female friend’s home.

Ezeoke told successive juries that he had an alibi for time of the shootings.

He claimed his Vauxhall Meriva had been leased from a man who took it back the day before the murder.

He attempted to explain the presence of the gunshot residue saying the vehicle, which was registered under false details, must have been used in a previous shooting.

The fifth jury to try the case deliberated for 41 hours over eight days to find Ezeoke of Cambridge Heath, east London, guilty of two counts of murder.

Mrs Justice Cutts remanded him in custody until sentencing on October 1.

Sgt Ratana's murder

Four crime scenes being 'painstakingly' searched over Sgt Ratana's murder

Police are "painstakingly" searching four crime scenes in connection with the killing of an police officer in Croydon on Friday (September 25).

Sergeant Matiu Ratana died after a 23-year-old gunman opened fire inside the Croydon Custody Centre in the early hours of Friday, while the suspect - who was handcuffed at the time of the shooting - remains in a critical condition.

Image

Giving an update on Saturday evening, deputy assistant commissioner Stuart Cundy said investigators have CCTV from the custody suite and body-worn video from the officers.

The suspect has not been spoken to yet due to his condition, he added.

The four locations where detailed searches are taking place are:

    Croydon Custody Centre, where the shooting occurred

    An area of London Road, Pollards Hill where the suspect was initially arrested by officers

    An address on Southbrook Road, Norbury

    A second address on Park Road, Banstead, Surrey, where local police officers from Surrey Police are assisting.
Enquiries at these locations include "rigorous forensic searches" which are expected to take days to complete.

Speaking outside New Scotland Yard, Cundy said the four crime scenes which were being "painstakingly" searched, adding: "We have recovered the gun from the custody suite where Matt was shot and that gun is being forensically examined.

Investigations are continuing into how the suspect, who had been detained in an area of London Road, Pollards Hill for possession of ammunition and possession of class B drugs, was able to access the weapon.

Deputy Assistant Commander Cundy, who is leading the investigation, said Friday was a "dark and sad day for the police family" and offered his thoughts to Sgt Ratana's partner, family and colleagues.

He added: "Everyone working on this investigation, from the forensic specialists to the local officers holding the cordons, does so with a heavy heart but a determination to find justice for our colleague and his family."

Tributes have poured in for the popular officer, who was also head coach at East Grinstead Rugby Club.

Sgt Ratana, known as Matt to family and friends, thought working in the custody suite was his "safest option" as he neared the end of his lengthy police career, friend Neil Donohue said.

He told BBC Breakfast: "He thought it was his safest option just to see him through to his retirement and no-one expected this to happen - certainly not within the police cells."

He described the officer as "the most nicest, generous man you could meet", and said he was "just a really genuinely nice guy".

Met Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick described Sgt Ratana as a "talented police officer" and said he was "big in stature, big in heart, friendly, capable, a lovely man and highly respected by his colleagues".

The suspect also shot himself during the incident at about 2.15am on Friday and is in a critical but stable condition in hospital.

Image

No police firearms were fired and the case is not being treated as terror-related.

He was not regarded a subject of interest by security services, the PA news agency understands, but reports suggest he may have previously been referred to the anti-extremism Prevent programme.

Following the shooting investigators from the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) watchdog attended the scene.

Young man gunned down in West London

Shakur Hassan, 23, died after being shot just yards from Hayes town centre at 10pm on Tuesday

Image

A 15-year-old girl was among the bystanders who tried to save his life .

A burned out car believed to have been involved the killing was found three miles from the scene of the shooting.

Two men, aged 31 and 21, were arrested in connection with the incident. They were taken to a west London police station and subsequently released with no further action. A post-mortem examination is yet to be held.

Detective Inspector Katherine Goodwin, who is leading the investigation said: “Firstly, my thoughts are with Shakur’s family and friends. I want to reassure them and the wider community that my team and I are working hard to piece together the circumstances that led to this tragic outcome.

“The investigation is very much in its early stages and we continue to follow all lines of inquiry and remain open minded as to who was responsible. I am keen to hear from anyone who was in the vicinity of Austin Road at the time of the incident. Did you see anything suspicious? Do you have footage or information that could assist my team? Please share anything you saw with either the police or Crimestoppers, no matter how insignificant you may think it is.”

A witness at the scene said: “I was with my 15-year-old daughter and we saw the young man on the ground. He was not speaking he was in a terrible way. My daughter phoned the police.

Some people brought a towel and tried to stop the blood. My daughter was traumatised. She was not even able to go to school the next day.”

Flowers, candles and balloons were left at the crime scene on Austin Road by friends and family. One card said: “RIP Bro forever in my head. The kindest soul fallen. Rest in eternal peace.”

Another said “sleep tight” and a third “Love you always.”

The Black on Black attacks continue but are seldom reported unless they result in death. This is one of the worst incidents:

Two year old boy shot in head

The grandmother of a two-year-old boy who survived being shot in the head "by sheer chance" today appealed for people to speak to police as they offered a £20,000 reward

Lillian Serunkuma said the attack on the child, who survived after the bullet missed an artery by just a millimetre, had “perplexed” her and she worried that someone who would do that “is a risk to the community”.

She has appealed for people with information to “do the right thing” and come forward to help police after the shooting in Harlesden on Wednesday, June 3.

The boy’s mother was also hit multiple times as she tried to shield the boy inside a car outside the family home.

Along with offering the reward for information that leads to the conviction of those responsible, Scotland Yard also released CCTV of a moped they believe was involved in the incident.

Lillian Serunkuma is urging people with information to come forward with information over the attack

Two young men in their late teens were also wounded in the attack in Energen Close at around 9.45pm by a gunman it is believed left on a moped. Two other children were present in the car but were unharmed.

Detectives believe a man carrying a hand gun fired a shot at one of the teenage men and then fired into a car containing the boy, his mother and the other teenage male.

The injuries sustained are expected to have a long-lasting impact on the victims, police said.

It was the second tragedy to strike the family of Ms Serunkuma, whose son Quamari Serunkuma-Barnes, 15, was stabbed to death walking home from school in January 2017.

Ms Serunkuma said: “This situation has had me perplexed by the actions of the person who did this and as much as I appeal to those who have any information I also understand their reluctance to say anything, however I urge them to do the right thing as this could have happened to anyone.

“The perpetrator chose to do this to innocent victims, therefore this is not a person that should be free if anyone knows something. I worry that someone with that mind-set is a risk to the community. This is something no family should have to deal with. The fact that an innocent child was also a victim, it’s important that people acknowledge this should never happen and any information however insignificant at the time may be important now.”

Detective Chief Inspector Pete Wallis, Specialist Crime North, who leads the investigation, said: “This was an appalling attack that left a little boy fighting for his life and, by sheer chance, did not end in a fatality. We have worked around the clock to try and find those responsible but we need the public’s help. We are now offering a £20,000 reward for information that leads to the conviction of those responsible for this attack.

Six people have previously been arrested in connection with the investigation.

A 19-year-old and two men aged 20 were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

Three men aged 23, 29 and 37-year-old man were all arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender. The 29-year-old was later arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

They have all been released under investigation.
