ELEVEN people arrested in connection with the shooting of a man inside an Ipswich nightclub will face no further action, police revealed today.

But detectives investigating the killing of 24-year-old south Londoner Jimoh Plunkett, who died in December 2006 after a night at Zest in Princes Street, revealed another arrest had been made.

A 20-year-old man from South Norwood in London was arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of conspiracy to murder and was subsequently interviewed by officers.

Police said a search following the man's arrest revealed a shotgun and cartridges, although these are not thought to be linked to Mr Plunkett's murder.

Mr Plunkett died in the early hours of Saturday, December 9, 2006 after being shot inside Zest.

He had travelled to the Ipswich club, which is now closed, to attend a garage music event.

Three others suffered gunshot wounds on a night of violence, while another man was stabbed.

Since then police have made numerous arrests and conducted thousands of enquiries to trace the offenders - but no one has yet been charged.

Last month, Mr Plunkett's sister, Sandra Obahor, told of her family's determination to see her brother's killer brought to justice.

“This has been a year of much grieving, much feeling of emptiness, pain and heartfelt memories of a son and brother,” she said.

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