Two men were tried for his murder but acquitted.
One of the men that was tried for his murder was later stabbed to death in Warham Street, Camberwell in August 2018. Two men were tried for the man's murder but acquitted after it was heard that they had acted in self-defence following a robbery. The man that was acquitted of Abdirahman Mohamed's murder and who was later stabbed to death in self-defence during the robbery had been friends with Rhyhiem Ainsworth Barton who was a rapper who was shot dead in Warham Street in May 2018 and whose murder is also currently unsolved.
Abdirahman Mohamed's post mortem, which took place at the Greenwich Public Mortuary concluded that his cause of death was a stab wound to the chest.
Abdirahman Mohamed was from Camberwell. It was claimed that he had been stabbed for laughing at someone after they had been caught by police with a samurai sword. It was noted that he was the brother of a member of the Zone 2 gang from Peckham.
A witness who worked at the Tesco supermarket and who had been near the scene said 'I saw him shout ‘help me, help me’' and that Abdirahman Mohamed then collapsed. The Tesco supermarket worker additionally said, 'Two people were with the young man, a white lady and a black boy. I thought they were joking around at first. Then I saw blood on the floor. And his friend was saying ‘talk to me, talk to me’. I saw people park their cars and a bus driver stopped to come and help. People tried to resuscitate him. However, he said that he didn't see who had stabbed him.
The Tesco supermarket worker said that Abdirahman Mohamed was a regular in the supermarket and that he had seen him in there only four or five hours earlier.
The two men that were tried for Abdirahman Mohamed's murder had been in the Moscow17 gang.
Abdirahman Mohamed was from Somalia.
