Abdul Ezedi: 'I am absolutely, entirely and utterly convinced Ezedi is dead' says policing expert

Tuesday 13 February 2024

Clapham alkaline attack suspect Abdul Ezedi died after going into the River Thames, according to a former Scotland Yard detective.

Speaking to TalkTV, Peter Bleksley said: "I'm absolutely entirely and utterly convinced that Ezedi is dead, and that he went into the Thames."

Detectives believe Ezedi may have gone into the river after he was seen on CCTV leaning over the railings of Chelsea Bridge on the night of the attack.

The Metropolitan Police said on Friday its main working hypothesis was the 35-year-old had “gone into” the Thames, adding Ezedi’s body may never be found due to the speed of the river's current.

But detectives have been criticised for failing to catch Ezedi, prompting speculation that their theory he went into the Thames is false and an attempt to cover up their handling of the search.

Peter said: "Many people will not believe what the Metropolitan Police are saying. On social media, there are thousands if not millions of people that refuse to believe the police.

"That is indicative of how far the reputation of that organisation has basically tanked in recent years. There is a refusal by people to accept the police's narrative."

The bodies of two men were found in the river on Saturday – but neither are that of Abdul Ezedi.

One body was found at 10.13am on Saturday near to HMS Belfast and another at 10.39am in Limehouse the same morning, the Metropolitan Police said.

Both deaths are being treated by the force as “unexpected pending further enquiries”.

It is understood the bodies were not found as a direct result of the search operation.

Detectives believe Ezedi may have gone into the river after being seen on CCTV leaning over the railings of Chelsea Bridge in west London on the night a woman and two young girls were attacked with a corrosive substance in Clapham, south London.

The force said on Friday its main working hypothesis was the 35-year-old had “gone into” the Thames.

However, police admit that Ezedi’s body may never be found due to the speed of the current in the river.

Ezedi, from the Newcastle area, is accused of pouring a strong alkali on his ex-partner, and injuring her two young children, aged three and eight, on January 31 in Clapham.
