GANGLAND murder carried out by a former Huddersfield man could not have been prevented, a top-level inquiry has found.

13:18 | ,

The investigation into the shooting of Eccles shopkeeper Nasar Hussain, in July 2009, was launched after a court case into his death.

And the independent Police Complaints Commission has ruled that the killing of Mr Hussain, an innocent shop worker in a gang drugs war, could not have been prevented by police or the Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca).

Mr Hussain was serving customers at an off-licence in Eccles, Greater Manchester, when Simeon Henderson strolled in with a sub-machine gun concealed in a paper bag. He shot the shopkeeper in the chest and stomach.

Mr Hussain, 27, was not the intended target and was not involved with the dispute between the two gangs in Bolton.

Henderson, 28, formerly of Hollin Avenue in Marsh and Woodville Place in Bradley, pleaded guilty to murder.

He received a life sentence with a minimum of 15 years, when he appeared at Manchester Crown Court in February.

Four other men: Mohammed Hafiz, 43, of Cheetham Hill; Arfan Rafiq, 26, of Oldham; Ryan Manning, 22, of Higher Ince and Akmal Afzal, 25, of Bolton were also jailed for their part in the incident.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission ordered a probe after it emerged that Soca had received intelligence beforehand that an armed robbery was set to take place at the shop.

The inquiry found the agency was first made aware of a potential armed robbery in the Greater Manchester area two days before the killing.
