Man jailed for murder of 22-year-old Badri Issa

The man who killed 22-year-old Badri Issa as he tried to calm an altercation, has been sentenced to prison.

On October 25, 2023, Badri and his friend were heading to their gym class in a car, when they noticed a white car trying to get their attention.

The driver, Raami Mohamed (pictured) signaled for them to pull over. Both cars stopped on Moss Lane East.

Issa’s friend got out of the car and was confronted by an agitated Mohamed.

Issa tried to de-escalate the situation but was stabbed by Mohamed (22) of Fairy Lane, Salford.

Despite Issa collapsing, the violent assault continued on his friend in broad daylight, with passersby and commuters attempting to intervene.

Mohamed was sentenced to a minimum of 18 years in prison after being found guilty of murder at Manchester Crown Court.

Another man, Kevell Blake, who was found guilty of manslaughter, will be sentenced at a later date.

Detective Chief Inspector Andy Naismith of Greater Manchester Police stated that Mr. Issa “paid the ultimate price for trying to de-escalate a situation.”

He added: “The car that Mohamed and Blake were in was soon located by one of our neighbourhood officers in a car park on Arrow Street, Manchester, and was recovered for the forensic examination. During this, blood was detected near the gear stick. The blood was identified as the blood of the victim, Badri Issa.”

Detective chief inspector Andy Naismith said: “Badri Issa was so young when he lost his life in the most tragic way. Having just graduated from university, he was on the cusp of starting a new life, a new career, and reaching new milestones. He paid the ultimate price for trying to de-escalate a situation. 

“Since day one, Badri has been at the heart of our investigation, and we have had teams of officers working around the clock to find answers for his family.

“I know that no outcome will ever lessen the pain his family feel, but I hope that today’s sentencing goes some way to giving his loved ones some comfort knowing that his killers are behind bars.”
