A man will appear in court today in connection with the death of Omer Jama Abdi, who died in Wembley more than a year ago.

Osman Ahmed Mahdi, 28, of Avonmore Road, Kensington, was arrested after attending a north London police station on Tuesday.

He was subsequently charged with murder and will appear in custody at Hendon Magistrates’ Court.

Mr Abdi, 35, died of coronary heart disease with a causational link to an alleged confrontation in St John Road on February 14, 2012. Police recently appealed for information into the incident.
