Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Andy Shearwood said: “I am making a new appeal today to any witnesses or anyone with information to contact the police as soon as possible.

“A number of people have already come forward to provide information and I am very grateful to them. However, there are other members of the public who were present at the Atesh Bar at the time of the incident and have not yet provided evidential accounts. 

“I would urge anyone with information to think about the family of the murder victim, Nagiib Maxamed. Naglib’s family deserve to know what happened to him, therefore if you do have any information please come forward and help us to provide justice and closure for them.

“You can contact Thames Valley Police by calling 101 or visiting our website, quoting reference 43210581126.

“If you do not wish to speak to the police, you can report anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111 or visiting Crimestoppers online.

“The force’s murder and attempted murder investigation has led to the arrest of six individuals. At this stage of our investigation, we are not linking any other suspects to these most serious of offences.”
