Sabina Nessa Glasgow keeps watch as teacher killer hunt rages on

A vigil is underway in Glasgow in honor of the “murdered” primary school teacher Sabina Nessa.

Sabina, 28, was taking a five-minute walk to meet a friend at The Depot bar in Pegler Square near her home in Kidbrooke, south-east London, on September 17 around 8:30 p.m. when she was assaulted.

His body was found the next day.

Reclaim the Streets Glasgow hosted a vigil in George Square in Glasgow this evening from 7-9 p.m.

Scots have been called on to come forward to “recognize the life of Sabina and every woman who has lost her life at the hands of a violent man”.

The organizers also expressed their condolences to Sabina’s grieving family.

A statement read: “Please join Reclaim the Streets Glasgow tonight in George Square to unite and recognize the life of Sabina Nessa and every woman who has lost their lives at the hands of an abusive man.



The 28-year-old teacher was on a date at a pub just a five-minute walk from her London home.

“Sabina’s story is poignant, the increase in violence against women and especially women of color cannot be ignored.

Please bring candles, flowers, signs and anything else you want to show your respect.

“If you want to write letters, we’ll be in George Square to pick them up.

“As before, make sure you have a safe route home, ideally with someone you trust.

“Wear a mask and don’t come if you have symptoms of COVID.

“We are devastated to hold another vigil, gender-based violence is serious and deadly.

“Our hearts go out to Sabina Nessa’s family and to all who loved and knew her.

“We share your rage and your grief.”

Sabina’s sister Jebina Yasmin Islam collapsed as she addressed the crowd at the vigil in London on Friday.

She said: “I just want to say thank you to everyone who came out today to show their support for my sister.

“We have lost an amazing, caring and beautiful sister who left this world far too soon.”

She added: “Sabina loved her family.

“Words can’t describe how we feel, we feel like we’re stuck in a bad dream and can’t get out of it – our world is shattered, we’re just lost for words.

“No family should go through what we are going through.”

A 38-year-old man arrested in connection with the murder has been released under investigation, Metropolitan Police said.
