A SECOND man has been charged with the murder of Abdullahi Hassan in South Hampstead.

Mohammed Mahir Miah, 20, of Lancefield Street in Westminster, was charged on Saturday with murder of 20-year-old Abdullahi and attempted murder of another man.

He will appear in court today (Monday).

Amil Choudhury, 20, of Walterton Road in Westminster, was charged last week with murder and attempted murder. He is next due to appear in court in October.

Tributes were paid last week to Abdullahi who was remembered as the “biggest character” in his family.

He was stabbed on the Alexandra and Ainsworth Estate on July 25 before dying in hospital. His cousin was also injured.

Abdullahi’s older brother, Mohamed Hassan, 22, told the New Journal: “He was a bubbly person. He was always honest and he would tell you how it is – that’s one of the things I always love about him.”

Three other men – all aged 23 – have been arrested on suspicion of murder as part of this investigation and all bailed pending further enquiries.
