Blessing Adebolajo, sister of Michael Adebolajo, the terror suspect accused of hacking a soldier to death, smiled yesterday as she was escorted from her home and got into a police car.
Blessing, 32, was led from her property yesterday morning just hours after her brother Michael, 28, was filmed ranting with blood on his hands yards from the body of the murdered soldier in Woolwich. She was carrying a bag full of clothes as she got into an unmarked police vehicle outside her flat in Romford, Essex, at 8.10am.
It is understood she was not arrested, but police will undoubtedly want to question her about her brother who neighbours said was seen regularly at the house.
A woman purporting to be Adebolajo’s sister told the Romford Recorder newspaper yesterday: ‘We didn’t know he was going to do this.’
Blessing – who has also gone by the surname Daniels – lives on the top floor of the property and used to share the home with her terror suspect brother, neighbours told The Times.
