Fourth Arrest Made in 2020 Murder of Rapper Tamba Momodu

Telford police have made a fourth arrest in connection with the October 2020 murder of 20-year-old rapper Tamba Momodu. The 24-year-old man was taken into custody on suspicion of murder and arson.

Why this matters: The arrest highlights the ongoing efforts of law enforcement to combat violent crime and bring perpetrators to justice, ensuring that communities feel safe and protected. This case also underscores the need for continued cooperation between authorities and the public to solve crimes and prevent further violence.

Momodu was fatally shot six times in the head and body on October 13, 2020 while visiting a gym at Bridges Business Park in Horsehay, Telford. He lived in Donnington, Telford but grew up in London.

The recent arrest follows the earlier charging of two other men in the case. Deria Hassan, 32, of Watford, and Mahamud Tarabi, 32, of Glasgow, were charged with murder and arson earlier this month in relation to Momodu's killing.

In 2021, Crimestoppers offered a £10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for Momodu's murder. "This was a young man who had his whole life ahead of him, and it was cut short by this brutal crime," said Detective Inspector Lee Holehouse at the time.

The 24-year-old man arrested this week remains in police custody for questioning. Authorities continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the shooting death of Tamba Momodu as they work to bring all those involved to justice.
