Sisters of Man Shot in PeckhamLondon Last Year Appeal for Help in Catching Those Responsible[Photos+VIdeo]
Rukie Ware and Zainab Raji made their emotional plea as the Met police offered a £20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of those responsible for 21-year-old Ola Raji’s death.
Ms Raji said: "To many people Ola was just another boy or statistic but to us he was so much more, so much more.
"He is a son, brother and grandson and very much the heart of this family."
Ms Ware said: "We still don’t know what happened so if anyone does know anything that could help to give us a tiny fragment of peace that would be much appreciated, any knowledge they may have no matter how small they think it is."
Ola Raji was cycling onto the East Surrey Grove Estate in Peckham at about 10.30pm on April 21 last year when he was confronted by two men.
That confrontation resulted in the 21-year-old being shot and falling to the ground where he was stabbed.
Detective Chief Inspector Will Reynolds, who is leading the investigation said: "Ola left his home at 10.15pm that night. He was shot at 10.30pm. It would have taken him a maximum of two minutes to get to East Surrey Grove on his bike so where was he? Did he meet anyone en route? Those 15 minutes are critical. I need that information and am desperate for someone to come forward to tell me.

IGP Solomon Arase launched it today in Port Harcourt, and said; “The concept of Supernumerary Police draws from Sec. 18 of the Nigeria Police Act which provides guidelines for their establishment and also grants them the powers, privileges and immunities of police officers,

In essence, therefore, SPY Police are engaged for specific security functions within a restricted jurisdiction or operational space.”…. and unlike d regular police, they r nt ur friends

"The hardest thing in the world to do is to keep quiet when your friends are going through something," she began.

Mavins First Lady and African Pop Diva, Tiwa Savage reportedly filed for divorce from husband Tunji Balogun last week Monday, citing irreconcilable differences and infidelity as cause for the suit, a source with knowledge of the matter authoritatively disclosed to The Herald.
The source stated, “When Tiwa fired Teebillz last year, she found out he was spending from the company account to keep up with his flashy lifestyle. He also sold his Rolex and his benz.”
The most significant of the three stages is the engagement proper which is often conducted under the Yoruba Cutomary Marriage Act.
The Act states that the children of the union between a husband and a wife belong to the father and if the father dies, the children belong to his immediate family. Tiwa's husband has all the rights over their child, according to the Yoruba culture and tradition, which are laws in Yorubaland.
Tiwa Savage's marriage crisis with Teebillz started long ago before a public manifestation that shocked their fans. Tunji Balogun a.k.a Teebillz’s outburst Thursday, opening more cans of worms about his marriage to popular singer, Tiwa Savage, may be the last straw that broke the camel’s back.
But before the public meltdown, there has been a deep crack in their marriage. It would be recalled that their three-year-old marriage has been having problems since last year when the celebrated singer sacked her husband as her manager.
Since then, there have been whispers of things falling apart between them. Also, in 2014, it was rumoured that their marriage had crashed.
A pointer to this, was when Tiwa failed to wish her husband a happy birthday on her social media page as it was part of her tradition.
