The two men accused of murdering soldier Lee Rigby on May 22 have both been remanded in custody after making separate court appearances.


Michael Olumide Adebolajo, 28, appeared before Westminster magistrates on June 3 while Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale, 22, who appeared at the Old Bailey via video link and will next come before the same court on June 28.


The pair, accused oF Rigby’s murder, were both shot by police before they were arrested.

Adebolajo, from Romford, east London, was charged after spending nine days in hospital.


He and Adebolajo were charged with the attempted murder of two police officers and possession of a firearm.


Adebowale, of Greenwich, south-east London, who spent six days in hospital, was remanded in custody by Westminster Magistrates’ Court on May 30.


A friend of Adebolajo was arrested by counter-terrorism officers on May 24, after telling the BBC Adebolajo was tortured in Kenya and harassed by MI5, who had asked him to spy for them.


Nusaybah was arrested under terrorism legislation minutes after finishing recording his interview for BBC Newsnight.


Counter-terrorism officers turned up at reception at the BBC’s central London headquarters as his interview was being recorded an hour before it was broadcast.


In the interview, Nusaybah in part attributed Adebolajo’s radicalisation to his alleged ill-treatment in Kenya.


According to The Guardian Adebolajo went to a lawyer to complain of harassment by MI5.


Police are continuing to hold a 10th person in connection with the murder. On May 27 a 50-year-old man was arrested in Welling, south-east London, on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder.
