Murdered sisters’ mother vows ‘they will not let him out – I will not let them’

The mother of two sisters who were murdered by a Satanic teenager has vowed to stop him ever being released from prison.

Mina Smallman said justice had been done for her “beautiful girls” Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman as their “deluded” killer was locked up for at least 35 years.

Mrs Smallman had looked on while Danyal Hussein sat with his back to the court as he was jailed for life via video link from Belmarsh prison on Thursday.

Speaking outside the Old Bailey, in central London, Mrs Smallman condemned the 19-year-old, who had stabbed her daughters to death after making a pact with a devil.

On his behaviour in court, she said: “It’s all a performance. There is nothing wrong with him. He’s just an obnoxious human being.”

She went on: “He is a broken human being who, if he had not been caught, four other families may have been suffering what we have.

“Well he ain’t out there now and I think he is so deluded, come 35 years’ time they will not let him out.

“I will not let them.”

Mrs Smallman went on: “There will be no celebrations here but justice has been done.”

She called for a review of the law, after the court heard that Hussein could not be handed a whole life order because of his youth.

She praised the Metropolitan Police for bringing Hussein to justice, saying she did not “cast a whole organisation by one particular sort of incident”.

But in the wake of a critical police watchdog report on the handling of the sisters’ missing persons report, she said there was an “underground that has infiltrated and is growing in our Metropolitan Police”.

She also thanked the media who had followed the case, saying: “Everybody is worth knowing about.”

On her daughters, she said: “They were beautiful, beautiful girls.

“Bibaa left behind a daughter who has given birth to a son in the last year and I am a great grandmother.”

She said Ms Henry had been an “amazing” social worker but she grieved for her younger daughter Ms Smallman more because “she had 20 years less than Bibaa”.

She added: “Good girls – I’m really proud of them.”
