Hackney murder: Police facing 'wall of silence' around popular personal trainer's death in east London

Detectivesinvestigating the murder of a “hugely popular” personal trainer are facing “total silence” with even his friends failing to speak to police.

Abraham Badru, 26, was shot dead on March 25 near his home in Hackney as he went to get a drink from the boot of his AMG Mercedes - writes standard.co.uk

Six months on and despite a £20,000 reward, no arrests have been made and “there are big gaps in his life”, Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh said.

Mr Badru received a police bravery award in 2009 after stopping a gang rape and giving evidence, despite receiving death threats.

His family believe he may have been killed as revenge but his love life and business interests are also being investigated.

Detectives are probing whether visits he made to two women in the 48 hours before his death are linked to his murder
