Police offer £20,000 reward

A year after the death Omer Jama Abdi in Wembley, police are making renewed appeals for witnesses and offering a £20,000 reward for information on his murder.

On Tuesday, 14th February 2012 at approximately 2.20am officers were alerted a man injured following an assault in St John's Road, Wembley.

He was taken to Northwick Park Hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival. He was 35-year-old Omer Jama Abdi. It is understood Mr Abdi had been involved in an altercation with two men, outside an address in St John's Road, prior to the assault.

.A initial post-mortem examination did not establish a formal cause of death, but following the results of further tests it was established Omer died of coronary heart disease with a causational link to the assault.

It is now one year on since Omer died and his family is still no nearer to seeing those responsible brought to justice. We are still keen to hear from anyone who knew Omer, that hasn't spoken to police and can help us identify anyone that he may have had any altercations with.I hope that following this passage of time that there are people still out there that have information on what happened on the night of his death that now feel they can come forward and share this with police."
