Ipswich: New police appeal over gun death of Zest clubber

ipswich: Detectives hunting the gunman who murdered Jimoh Plunkett today issued an appeal for information – four years on from the shooting.

The 24-year-old Londoner was killed on December 9, 2006 at Zest nightspot in Princes Street.

Mr Plunkett, from New Cross, is believed to have been an innocent victim after shots were randomly fired into a group of people.

A large contingent of clubbers had come up from London for a garage music event. But despite a widespread investigation, which has included appeals and inquiries in south London, detectives have so far drawn a blank.

Today, a spokeswoman for Suffolk police said: “The investigation is still open and still ongoing. We would like to renew appeals for information and would welcome anybody who would like to talk to Suffolk police about the case.”

Since then police have made numerous arrests but the perpetrator has never been brought to justice. Previously Mr Plunkett’s sister, Sandra Obahor, told of her family’s determination to see her brother’s killer brought to justice.

“We, the family, are not looking for revenge or payback – all we want to see is justice,” she said.

n Anyone with information about Mr Plunkett’s murder should telephone 01473 613500 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
