Three men are charged with murder over fatal stabbing of prisoner, 25, at Wormwood Scrubs

The Metropolitan Police have confirmed that three men have been charged with murder, following the fatal stabbing of 25-year-old Khader Saleh at HMP Wormwood Scrubs, on Wednesday, January 31.

A fourth man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and has been released under investigation.

All four men have been confirmed to be prisoners at Wormwood Scrubs.

The three charged with murder appeared at Willesden Magistrates court today.

They are now due to appear at the Central Criminal Court on Tuesday February 6.

The men are Ahmed Khyre and Kalif Dibbasssey, both 21, and Enton Marku, 20.

Khader Ahmed Saleh, 25, was found with a number of knife injuries on Wednesday afternoon at the prison in west London.

He was pictured in a final Snapchat with his wife who he shares a child with.

Saleh, who moved to the UK from Somalia 13 years ago, was being held in the prison before being sentenced next month.

He was married to Salma Hassan, 20, and lived in Tower Hamlets with their two-year-old son.

His mother Amina Dualeh, 58, previously said: ‘He should have been safe.’

She told the Evening Standard: ‘I cannot believe his life has been taken while inside a prison. It is unacceptable. I have lost my son and he is never coming back. Who has the responsibility? I am so sad.’

Mrs Hassan added: ‘It is appalling. He should have been safe in the prison. Officers should be held accountable.’

It is thought that Saleh was targeted by a gang inside the Category B prison – just a month after inspectors warned of ‘high levels of serious violence’ inside the jail.

‘The prison has now introduced body-worn cameras, additional CCTV and patrol dogs, and will be recruiting 120 extra officers to further improve safety.’We are working with the police on their investigation and it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.’

The victim’s brother, Said Yousef, said he had warned his family about problems with gangs and violence inside the prison.

He told BBC Radio London: ‘I was just in a shock position since the time that I heard

‘I wouldn’t believe it because someone was inside the jail and got murdered in this way, it was really shocking for me.’

He added: ‘He said there’s a lot of gangs inside and that guards are not doing anything about it.

‘It’s basically they let it go if fight happen.’

He also said that the killers must be brought to justice for their crimes.

He added: ‘I’m talking on behalf of our family and saying they have to get the highest sentence in the prison for the horrible things they have done.’

Mr Saleh’s family have asked for his body to be released by the coroner said that he can be buried in accordance with Islamic tradition.
Duale Yousef, a community worker who is helping to support the relatives, said: ‘The police told us the coroner will held another 28 days – Islamic way it has to be allowed for Muslims to bury their deceased ones.’

He said the community is in shock and added: ‘It’s sad because I think Khader has been neglected and wasted his life and the killers, we don’t know who they are and how has been killed.

‘What we looking for today is for justice and that justice must be served for Khader.’

He added: ‘Khader has left as well a son and this young boy has lost his father today, he is fatherless.

‘He will know one day who murdered his father.

‘But the reality is we feel unjustice (sic) – the way Khader has been treated in prison was absolutely shocking.

‘I have heard that he has been beaten before his death and nothing has been done.’

Police and paramedics were called to the prison at just before 3.20pm.

A post-mortem examination will be held in due course. Enquiries into the incident continue.
