Did MI5 Help Lee Rigby Killer Escape Kenyan Jail Before He Murdered Soldier?
DAILY MAIL – The Security Services are facing demands from MPs to answer ‘deeply troubling’ claims that they left one of Lee Rigby’s murderers free to kill by helping him escape jail overseas.
MPs have been told by senior Kenyan officials they wanted to lock up Michael Adebolajo for terrorism offences when he was caught trying to join a notorious Islamist group.
But it is claimed that MI5 intervened and insisted Adebolajo be set free.
He was allowed to return to Britain, and last year he mowed down and hacked to death the soldier outside Army barracks in Woolwich, South-East London.
It is the first time politicians have discussed publicly the shocking claims, which British diplomats have tried to deny.
Now the Commons Home Affairs Committee, which uncovered the evidence during private meetings in Kenya, is demanding that the Security Services provide answers about their involvement in the case in Africa four years ago – and what opportunities they may have missed to avoid the killing of Drummer Rigby, 25.
