In February, Adebowale was jailed alongside Michael Adebolajo after the pair ran over Fusilier Lee Rigby in a car before attacking him with knives and a meat cleaver.
22-year-old Michael Adebowale was given a 45-year minimum term for murdering the soldier in Woolwich last year in that attack which shocked Britain.It was confirmed this morning that he has been given the right to appeal against his life sentence after he was transferred to Broadmoor Hospital due to mental health problems.
Adebolajo was given a whole-life sentence, which means he will never be released from prison.
Adebowale had been serving the first months of his prison term at Belmarsh high-security prison in south-east London. But he was moved to a mental health unit at Broadmoor two weeks ago after reportedly ‘hearing voices’ and suffering ‘psychotic episodes’.
Late Lee Rigby’s family has regarded the news as “a joke”.
