Abdirahman’s parents issued the following statement after the conviction of Mucaad Ali Farah today (Friday 10 November):
“Abdirahman was our son. He was also a dearly loved brother and will be missed by the family and all that knew him.
“Abdirahman was only 22 years old. He has lost his life in such tragic circumstances. He had his whole life ahead of him. As a family, we are trying to be strong and support one another with the support of the wider community.
“At this extremely difficult and harrowing time, we would ask that our family is left to grieve for the loss of Abdirahman in peace.”
