Friends and family have been paying tribute to Anowar Tagabo, a 25 year old student who has died following an incident in Sheffield. Anowar had been visiting the city for a family wedding when he was attacked in the city centre. He was taken to hospital and died nine days later. Police are treating the incident as murder.
Anowar’s cousin Mansour described the student as “a kind, friendly and peace loving young man”. He added: “Anowar worked very hard and learned English and went to Bradford University to study Peace and Development…. Anowar escaped from the ongoing war in Darfur and chose this lovely country to study peace and development, because he love peace and was always looking to help vulnerable people. Being attacked and killed in such circumstance, we are as a family beyond pain.”
Our thoughts are with Mansour and his family.
