LONDON (SD) – The father of the man suspected of killing UK lawmaker has spoken for the first time since the MP was murdered.
Sir David Amess, 69, a senior Conservative Member of Parliament of Southend West was stabbed to death last Friday by a man suspected to be a British national of Somali origin.
Boris Johnson has spoken of his shock and sadness at the loss of “one of the kindest” people in politics.
Harbi Ali Kullane, who once served as the senior communication advisor to former Prime Minister Omar Abdirashid Sharmarke is the father of prime suspect of the lawmaker who is identified as a 25-year-old, Ali Harbi Ali.
“I’m feeling very traumatized. It is not something I expected or even dreamt of,” Kullane told The Sunday Times on Saturday from his sister’s North London home.
Ali is being taken into custody and his case is handed over to the anti-terrorist Scotland Yard, according to Kullane visited the suspect.
Sir David, 69, had been an MP since 1983 and was married with five children.
He is the second serving MP to be killed in the past five years, following the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox in 2016.
