The latest added to the ‘wanted’ list is Ismail Mohamoud Adan, who was named in court as a man alleged to have been involved in the killing of Jordan Marples-Douglas in Sheffield last year.

Jordan, aged 23, was stabbed to death 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 after a trial.

Adan left the UK the day after the murder after his girlfriend booked him a flight to Dubai.

He is then believed to have flown to Somalia.

Detectives are still keen to trace a man wanted over the murder of 21-year-old Kavan Brissett in Sheffield in August 2018.

Four men were sentenced for the parts they played in a drug deal which led to an altercation in which Kavan, who had gone to the scene with the men, was fatally stabbed.

Kavan was knifed in his chest near to Langsett Walk and was taken to hospital but died four days later.

Ahmed Farrah, who is believed to have been injured in the same incident, is wanted for questioning over the murder.

Farrah, who is also known as Reggie and has links to Broomhall, was captured on CCTV at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, where he was treated for facial injuries, on the night that Kavan was stabbed.

Farrah’s passport has never been recovered.

Abdi Ali is wanted over the murder of Shaun Lyall

Sheffield man Abdi Ali is wanted for questioning over the murder of 47-year-old Shaun Lyall, who was tortured and battered to death in his home in Cleethorpes in July 2018.

A man was jailed for life over the murder but jurors in his trial were told that he did not act alone and Ali was also involved.

The 30-year-old, who is also known as Mohammed Ismail, Black Johnny, Gulaid and Madman, was born in Somalia but brought up in Sheffield, where he lived until he moved to the east coast in the summer of 2018.

He has links to Shirecliffe and Pitsmoor and has been described by detectives as a ‘significant suspect’.

Mr Lyall was battered with weapons including golf clubs, screwdrivers, a knife, scissors and a length of wood.

The motive for the attack is said to have been missing drugs and cash that Mr Lyall was supposed to have been looking after.

Four other men from Sheffield have been evading arrest since the murder of Jordan Thomas, 22, who was shot dead in December 2014.

He was shot through the window of a car he was travelling in, with detectives believing the assassination on Derek Dooley Way to be a revenge attack in a feud between two gangs.

A man was jailed for 36 years for Jordan's murder but it could never be proven that he was the gunman who pulled the trigger and he was convicted on the basis that he was part of a pre-planned plot to kill.

Four others believed to hold vital information remain at large over six years later.
