On Wednesday 22nd May 2013, the machete wielding suspects savagely attacked a man who has been identified as a serving British soldier.
In the full view of the public, the victim was struck multiple times and according to several media outlets, the victim was “beheaded”.
The suspects were eventually shot by Police officers and are presently being monitored in secure hospitals in London.
The Daily Mail and UK Sun Newspaper are reporting that one of the attackers has been identified as Michael Adebolajo.
According to the Daily Mail, “A house in a Lincolnshire village has been raided by Met police officers investigating yesterday’s alleged terror attack in Woolwich.
Officers swooped on the detached house as the name of one of the suspects was revealed on internet forums and Twitter as Michael Adebolajo.
He has been identified as the alleged killer seen ranting on video shortly after the murder of the soldier in Woolwich.
It is understood the men, who are being treated in separate hospitals while under arrest, are most likely to be British citizens of Nigerian descent who have converted to a radical form of Islam.
However, they are not thought to have links to terror groups based in Nigeria, such as the jihadist militant organisation Boko Haram.”
This is tragic.
