Ismail Mohamoud Adan was named in court as a man alleged to have been involved in the killing of Jordan Marples-Douglas, aged 23, in March last year.

Jordan was killed in a knife attack in his Woodthorpe home when two men were said to have confronted him over a drug debt they were to ‘enforce’.

One of the men, Ben Jones, 26, formerly of Archdale Road, Manor, was found guilty of murder and jailed for life in April after a trial.

Jordan Marples-Douglas was stabbed to death in his home in Woodthorpe, Sheffield

He was ordered to serve a minimum of 21 years behind bars before he can be considered for parole.

One month on from the sentencing hearing, Adan remains at large.

He was identified as a suspect during the police probe into Jordan’s death but went to ground before officers could arrest him.

He left the UK the day after the stabbing after his girlfriend booked him a flight to Dubai.

Using his partner Dina Aweimrin’s bank card at Dubai airport, Adan then booked himself a flight to Somalia, where he is believed to be evading arrest.

Aweimrin, 22, was jailed for three years for her actions after being found guilty of assisting an offender.

South Yorkshire Police said: “We have strong reason to believe the outstanding suspect is in Somalia and enquiries are ongoing, including discussions with the Foreign and Commonwealth office. The images have been circulated with the relevant border agencies and authorities.”
