Detectives investigating the murder of Tairu Jallow in Kettering have arrested a man in Birmingham in connection with the incident.

Mr Jallow (pictured), 29, died on Sunday, January 14, 2018, after being stabbed in his home in Havelock Street.

Four men have been charged with his murder.

Now a 22 year-old man has been arrested (Monday, 28th January), on suspicion of murder and he remains in police custody.

The arrest was the result of a joint operation between Northamptonshire Police and West Midlands Police.

Detective Chief Inspector Ally White, of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit Major Crime Team, said:

“While Mr Jallow’s murder took place a year ago, our investigation remains ongoing.

We hope news of this arrest may jog the memory of anyone in the area at the time he was killed. Anyone who remembers something which may be helpful to our investigation is asked to call 101 and ask for the Operation Network team.”
