Man (38) arrested in connection to murder of Sabina Nessa in London.

A 38-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of teacher Sabina Nessa, London’s Metropolitan Police have said.

The suspect was arrested at an address in Lewisham on Thursday and is being questioned in custody.

The force also issued CCTV images of an unknown second man walking in Pegler Square, Kidbrooke, on the evening Ms Nessa was attacked, as well as an image of a silver vehicle they believe he has access to.

Investigators urgently want to speak to the man, and are asking anyone who recognises him or the vehicle to contact them immediately.

Ms Nessa (28) had been walking to meet a friend at a pub in Kidbrooke, southeast London, on Friday, on a journey that should have taken just five minutes when she was fatally attacked near Cator Park.

Her body was found near the OneSpace community centre at Kidbrooke Park Road in the Royal Borough of Greenwich at about 5.30pm on Saturday.

This is the second arrest London’s Metropolitan Police has made in connection with the attack.

On Saturday, detectives arrested a man in his 40s on suspicion of murder, who was then released under further investigation.

‘Inconsolable’

Ms Nessa’s cousin Zubel Ahmed said previously her parents are “inconsolable” after their loss.

In an interview with the BBC, he said: “We are all truly devastated. Her parents are absolutely shocked, they’re inconsolable still and understandably so, to hear of their daughter being taken away from them by some cowardly man is just horrific.

“She honestly was the most caring person, kindest, sweetest girl you could meet. Sabina’s heart was as good as gold, she never had a bad word to say about anyone. Her sister is going to miss her so much.” – PA
