Ali Harbi Ali Family and Father

Ali Herbie with his family came to the UK from Somalia in the 1990s – where his dad is reportedly a senior citizen to the government in the African nation.

It is not thought to have been known to security services in the past, although the investigation is ongoing and new details could emerge.

However, the man is understood to have been referred to the Government’s anti-terror Prevent programme some years prior, where members of the public are asked to spot early signs of radicalisation.

The Sun exclusively revealed that police said they had discovered Islamist material on his phone following the fatal stabbing.

Ali, who is thought to have been targeted by the Government’s anti-terror Prevent programme, may have lived in Sir David’s Southend West constituency in Essex in the past.

His most recent residence is believed to be in London. Officers have been carrying out searches at three addresses.

The security services are providing assistance to Scotland Yard, which is leading the investigation. Last night, detectives were granted a warrant of further detention, allowing them to keep Ali in custody until Friday.

Police officers were yesterday standing guard outside the North London council house where Ali lives. It is in a street of £2 million three-storey townhouses where neighbours include broadcaster Giles Coren and, formerly, the late actor Roger Lloyd Pack, who played Trigger in Only Fools And Horses.

Sir David, 69, who had been an MP since 1983, met the public every fortnight and advertised the details on his parliamentary website.

Shortly before his killing, one Minister told this newspaper that the Government feared a wave of fresh terror attacks as the country emerged from the Covid pandemic, due to an ‘epidemic’ of ‘bedroom radicals’ who spent lockdown hunched over computers plotting atrocities.

Ali Harbi Ali Know

It is believed David Amess’s killer had been waiting calmly before stabbing the Conservative politician 17 times – only to then sit silently waiting for police to arrive.

Locals had seen the suspect being led away in “jeans and a white top and was completely quiet.”

Police have since searched three London homes that they believe may have a connection to the murder.

Cops are also investigating any possible connection with Islamic terror groups, with The Times reporting he may have been inspired by jihadist group al-Shabaab – an offshoot of al-Qaeda.

Scotland Yard authorities released a statement following the arrest report of the Sir David Amess suspect Ali Harbi Ali.

They said: “Late on Friday, whilst in police custody, the man was subsequently further detained under section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000 and he is now being held at a London police station.

“On Saturday, detectives were granted a warrant of further detention at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, allowing them to keep the man in custody until October 22, when the warrant expires.”

Officials also added that they do not believe anyone else was involved in the attack.

Elsewhere, a statement of condolence signed by many Somali organisations and community leaders said they were “shocked and saddened by the senseless violence perpetrated upon an innocent MP,” report Sky News.

It continued: “We express our deepest sympathy and condolences to Sir David Amess’s family, loved ones and his constituents.

“Everyone who knew Sir David Amess described him as ‘one of the kindest, most compassionate, and a distinguished public servant’ who committed and devoted to serving his community.

“Sir David Amess promoted our shared values of tolerance, love and respect that make Britain so great.”
