BBC has done a feature on the death of Alexander Kareem, the brother of a former BBNaija reality TV star, Khafi.
Alexander was shot on Askew Road in Shepherd’s Bush and died after suffering multiple wounds in the chest.
In a statement issued, the family of the deceased expressed heartbreak at their predicament.
“Alex was a loving and caring boy who was loved by so many,” his family said.
“He was so enthusiastic about what he did, he loved IT and computers. His life was tragically cut short by such a senseless act of violence which no one should ever have to endure.
“He will never have the ability to grow up and live the life we all can, he had plans to go to university in September.”
The reality TV star shared the BBC feature on her brother’s murder and accompanied it with a plea begging for information on his death.
“On the 1st of January 2020 I had no idea I would be going into the 1st day of the second half of the year without my little brother,” Khafi wrote, adding, “Almost a month on and the person who has broken my family still has not been found. The hardest thing was not being there for my brother when he cried out for help. I’m praying we can help him now. If you know who did this please come forward. I beg you. #HelpAlex.”
In the BBC feature, Khafi’s family members also begged the killers of her brother to turn themselves in.
“If you did this and you are watching this at home, Please turn yourself up to Police. No mother should go through this. This is everlasting sorrow,” Khafi’s mother said in tears.
