Second Woolwich killer identified as Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale

The other Woolwich killer has been identified as Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale, 22, of Greenwich, southeast London (Pictured left). Like Michael Adebolajo, he's also a British citizen of Nigerian descent, though not much is known about his family. More info about Michael Olumide Akinbiyi Adebolajo (pictured right). He was born on December 10, 1984, at Kings College Hospital in Lambeth, South London. His Nigerian-born father, Anthony Adebolajo was a student at the time, and went on to become an NHS nurse. His mother, Tina, the niece of a university law professor in Benin, West Africa, was a housewife but she too dedicated herself to public duty by becoming a social worker. He has three younger siblings: a brother named Jeremiah and two sisters named Blessing and Christiana. Michael was born into a Christiam family but embraced Islam around the age of 16. He attended the University in Greenwich, South-East London, and was once locked up for violent behavior.The dramatic moment police shot the two Woolwich terror suspects has been caught on video. New footage shows the two men brandishing weapons and charging at officers in a car as they arrive at the scene. One of the men runs straight at the car as police shout "drop it". Just inches from the door of the vehicle the man is blown off his feet by a shot from an officer in the back of the car. Two shots ring out. Officers run from the car to cover him as he lies prone on the ground, his legs are moving. During his charge, his accomplice runs alongside on the pavement armed with what appears to be a gun, which is pointed at officers. Four shots are fired by SO19 marksmen and the second man is felled. A further two shots sound out as the men lie on the ground being tended by officers. The whole sequence is over in seconds. In the footage screams can be heard above the helicopter whirring overhead and people can be seen running in panic as the shooting starts. Police officers shout at those around to "get back" as they can be heard calling for an ambulance. IT repairman Zac-Samanachi Qadir, 35, who filmed one of the pieces of footage, told The Sun: "The police opened fire, they had no choice. "The guy in the brown coat had the revolver. His thumb was hanging off his hand. It could be his gun had backfired." For more than 10 minutes after they allegedly hacked to death 25-year-old soldier Lee Rigby, the men waited for police to arrive, inviting people to film them, with their hands covered in blood clutching blades. The suspects, Michael Adebolajo, 28, originally from Romford, Essex, and Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale, 22, of Greenwich, southeast London, are being treated for non life-threatening injuries under police guard at separate hospitals. The men, who are of Nigerian background, but born in Britain, were both known to the security services , but were assessed by MI5 as not posing a threat requiring "immediate intervention", Government sources said.
