Alfusaine Jabbi: Hunt continues for faith healer’s killer

Almost a month after a spiritual healer was stabbed and beaten to death in an “almost ritualistic killing” in Luton, murder investigators are still searching for clues about his killers.

The body of 22-year-old Alfusaine Jabbi was found in Leagrave Park car park off Sundon Park Road, early on Saturday, April 29.

Mr Jabbi, from the Gambia, was known by close family and friends as Abdula and Mohammed Ali, and also worked as a spiritual faith healer called Mr Wahib from a flat in Bury Park Road, Luton.

His body was formally identified by his twin brother who flew to Luton from the Gambia last week.

Posters asking questions about the victim are being put up around the town at key locations such as Leagrave Park car park and also Pembroke Avenue, where police say he may have been some time after 9pm the night before he died.

It also asks if anyone rented a room to Mr Jabbi or used his services.

Det Supt Keith Garwood, leading the investigation, still believes Mr Jabbi was murdered in Luton.

He is keen to speak to anyone who may have seen him either on foot or in a vehicle on the Friday night before his death or Saturday morning.

He said: “While we do not know exactly where Mr Jabbi met his death, I do want to speak to anyone who saw him in Pembroke Avenue on Friday night, April 28, or elsewhere between 2.30am and 6am on Saturday, April 29, which was the time his body was found in Leagrave Park car park.”

He added: “We’ve been to Bradford following a number of lines of inquiry, all of which have been very useful, but the focus of this investigation is definitely in Luton.
“The clues to his killer or killers are here in this town, now we need people to tell us why this man was murdered.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Operation Monarch incident room, in confidence, on 01582 394272, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
