Alexander Kareem, younger brother of former Big Brother Nigeria (BB Naija) housemate, Khafi Kareem has been shot dead in Shepherd’s Bush, West London.
The 20-year old was shot while walking home from a convenience store. The culprit(s) are yet to be identified.
However, Khafi has been putting on brave face on her social media. This morning (Saturday 13 June, 2020) as she streamed live on YouTube as part of her #KhafiPrays sessions, she disclosed to her fans that she “she is not ready to talk about it” but they should “keep her family in prayers”
According to The Sun (UK), Khafi’s brother was shot in the early hours of Monday. The publication also revealed that Alexander “screamed out “help me” as he lay dying in the street at 12.40am. The Sun reveals, passers-by tried to give him CPR before paramedics reached the scene – but Alexander was pronounced dead a short time after. Police are appealing for information about a white Range Rover driven by his killers which was found burned out three miles away in Ealing, London.”
Many fans and friends have poured in their condolences on social media.
