Investigation Explores Theory Abdul Ezedi, Suspected in Clapham Chemical Attack, Might Have Died Post Last Known Appearance

The ongoing search for Abdul Ezedi, the suspect in a distressing chemical attack, has taken a grim turn as police consider the possibility that he may have met a fatal end by falling into the River Thames. This theory emerges amidst the backdrop of an intensive investigation marked by the last confirmed sighting of Ezedi on Southwark Bridge at 9:50 pm on a Wednesday, as disclosed by detectives.

Ezedi became the focus of a major police manhunt following the attack on a 31-year-old woman and her two children, aged three and eight, with an alkaline substance. The incident, captured in grainy CCTV footage, occurred approximately two hours post-attack, showing Ezedi in proximity to the Thames. The trail of his movements led to the last transaction with his bank card at Tower Bridge station at 9:33 pm, after which he was seen crossing the river, told The SUN.

Despite exhaustive efforts, including the review of extensive CCTV footage, law enforcement has yet to locate Ezedi, leading to speculation about his current status. Commander Jon Savell has articulated two primary theories under consideration: Ezedi is either deceased or being concealed by someone to evade capture. The lack of recent sightings and the absence of any interaction with the public have fueled these hypotheses, pointing to either a tragic end or deliberate hiding.

The allegations against Ezedi are severe, involving not only the chemical attack but also an attempt to run a woman over and violent actions towards her three-year-old daughter. The attack took place near the Clapham South Belvedere Hotel, where the victims were staying, resulting in severe injuries for the mother, including the potential loss of sight in one eye, while her daughters were discharged from the hospital after receiving treatment.

In response to the gravity of the situation, the police have announced a £20,000 reward for information leading to Ezedi’s capture. However, Det Supt Rick Sewart, who is at the helm of the manhunt, cautioned that locating Ezedi might be a protracted process, especially if he is being sheltered.

The search operation has mobilized a hundred specialist officers, underscoring the seriousness with which this case is being treated, akin to a major murder hunt or a counter-terrorism operation. Authorities have issued a stern warning against approaching Ezedi, emphasizing the danger he poses and the legal consequences for those assisting him.

The investigation has also uncovered details about Ezedi’s background, including his arrival in the UK, his initial failure to claim asylum, and subsequent acceptance after converting to Christianity. The complexity of Ezedi’s case, coupled with the severity of the attack, has left the community and law enforcement in a state of heightened alert as the search continues.
