Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Anowar Tagabo Anowar Tagabo

A MAN arrested by detectives investigating the murder of Bradford student Anowar Tagabo has been released on bail while officers conduct further enquiries.

Officers made the arrest on Saturday and the 24 year old suspect was held overnight before being released.

Anowar, aged 25, died on June 3 after being injured following a confrontation with a group of men while on a night out.

He had been in Sheffield celebrating a wedding before becoming involved in an incident on Carver Street which left him with a serious head injury on May 25.

He had just finished his first year at Bradford University, on a peace studies course.

Now his two cousins, Monsour Kitar, aged 34, and Bakheet Modeen, 25, who both live in the Burmantofts area of Leeds, have joined police in appealing for information about what happened that night.

They said: “Our cousin and friend Anowar was a typical 25-year-old.

"He was a kind, friendly and peace-loving young man.

“He came to the UK for a better life for himself, away from all the war and unrest in his home of Sudan.

“Anowar worked very hard. He learnt English and went to Bradford University to study and because of his former life in Sudan, he chose to study Peace and Development.

“Anowar’s dream was to return to Sudan with knowledge that he could use to find a solution to the conflict.

“On Saturday, 24 May, Anowar came to Sheffield for a wedding party. Afterwards he went out to town to meet a friend. We know he left Embrace nightclub with an unknown friend and a short time later he was savagely attacked by a group of people.

"He sustained a serious head injury in the attack and later died as a result of his injuries.

“Our family is devastated. His mother in Sudan is in pain and anguish at what has happened to her son.

“Anowar escaped from the ongoing war in Sudan. He left his mother and brothers and had chosen this lovely country to live and study Peace and Development.

“He loved people and was always looking to help the vulnerable. Therefore, being attacked and killed in such circumstances is unthinkable and beyond pain for us."
