Abdulkalaq Hussain Ali was stabbed three times outside a house.
A Somali man was tried for his murder but acquitted.
Abdulkalaq Ali was stabbed three times in the chest, with one stab wound piercing his heart and one going through the back of his neck.
It was said that the man tried for his murder had accused Abdulkalaq Ali of spreading malicious sexual gossip about his tribe. However, in court the man said that whilst he was at the scene of the murder, it wasn't him that stabbed Abdulkalaq Ali.
The court heard that Abdulkalaq Ali had told people that the man's clan had raped some men after no women turned up at a party they had held in Mogadishu, Somalia. It was heard that Abdulkalaq Ali had brought dishonour to the man tried by spreading the gossip and that he had attacked him because of it.
The man tried and Abdulkalaq Ali, along with others, had been socialising at a house in Haydn Park Road that was frequented by Somali ex-pat's where they would chew khat. However, it was said that they started to argue and that the man tried then confronted Abdulkalaq Ali about the gay slander that he was said to have been spreading. It was said that there was then a scuffle outside during which Abdulkalaq Ali was stabbed.
