London, May 23 (IANS) Michael Adebolajo, a 28-year-old Londoner of Nigerian descent, is one of the two suspects who hacked to death a British soldier in London, a media report said Thursday.
The two terror suspects are being held under armed guard at hospitals in London and one of them has been named by Sky News sources as Adebolajo.
The vicious attack on the soldier took place Wednesday in Woolwich, southeast London.
Adebolajo is a 28-year-old Londoner of Nigerian descent, said the media report.
“He was born in Lambeth, grew up in east London. There are still members of his family living in the area.
“He was a student at Greenwich University, but it is not clear what he was studying there. Already on Facebook there are comments from former pupils say that they went to school with him in east London.”
Police have been searching an address in Lincolnshire believed to be linked to Adebolajo.
The defence ministry said: “As a result of the incident in Woolwich, a number of additional security measures have been put in place. As you would expect, we would not talk about the details of these measures.”
