He was living in Cleethorpes at the time of the murder.

A post mortem examination revealed that Mr Lyall died of multiple injuries caused by a number of weapons.

It is believed that a number of people were involved in the attack, which is thought to have been connected to drugs.

Ali, who is known as 'Madman,' 'Johnny' and 'Gulaid' has a distinctive gold front tooth, which detectives suspect may have been removed or covered with a veneer to help disguise his appearance while he is on the run.

He may also have stubble or a beard.

In addition to his links to Sheffield, he also has connections to Lancashire, Merseyside, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Lincolnshire and Cleveland.

Four arrests have been made so far in connection with the murder.

Anyone with information should call Humberside Police on 101 and quote incident number 517 of July 17.
