What happened to your daughters Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman?

On June 6, 2020, two of Ms Smallman’s daughters, Bibaa Henry, 46, and Nicole Smallman, 27, were stabbed to death in Fryent Country Park, north-west London.

Their family reported the sisters missing on June 6, 2020, when the UK was in lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The police have been criticized for the way the sisters’ case was handled, especially for the lack of interest in finding them in the first 36 hours.

Bibaa and Nicole’s bodies were discovered during a search by their family, rather than the police, for Nicole’s boyfriend, Adam Stone. After the women were found, Metropolitan Police officers searched the area for evidence.

Last year, speaking in an interview about by Sarah Everard When asked if she thought her daughters’ race meant there was “no urgency” in looking for them after they were reported missing, Ms Smallman said: “Absolutely, I’m convinced.

“I think the notion of ‘everyone matters’ is absolutely correct, but it’s not true.”

He went on to say that the “specific situation of my daughters and Sarah” shows that “they did not receive the same support, the same protest”.

The sisters and their friends had been celebrating Bibaa’s birthday in the park on Friday, June 5, and it was early Saturday morning when they were killed. CCTV footage shared later in court captured the two on their way to the birthday picnic.

Who killed them?

The sisters were killed by 19-year-old Danyal Hussein after he used his own blood to sign a pact with the mythical demon King Lucifuge Rofocale.

In a “campaign of revenge,” the Old Bailey heard, Hussein vowed to kill six women every six months to win the £321 million Mega Millions Super Jackpot and keep killing women for as long as he could.

The note, which was read in court, read: “Settlement for the Lucifuge Rofocale.

“Perform a minimum of six sacrifices every six months as long as you are free and physically able.

“Sacrifice only women. Build a temple for yourself. Do everything I have promised you.

“For me, win the Mega Millions Super Jackpot, to receive fruitful rewards in return for the future sacrifices I make to you.

“The rewards could consist of wealth and power. Never be suspected of any crime by the police and also the police never know of any crime you have committed and will commit.

“Signed by, Me Danyal.”

Prosecutor Oliver Glasgow QC told the jury: “His plan could not be clearer: sacrifice women for personal gain and never be suspected of doing anything wrong.”

On another sinister note, he offered blood to the ‘demon queen Byleth’ so that a girl from his school would fall in love with him.

His killing spree was eventually cut short after he was cut off during the attack on the sisters, allowing the police to track him down through DNA evidence. The day after the murder, Hussein went to hospital with cuts on his hand caused by a knife, claiming that he had been attacked by a group of children.

Hussein first came to the attention of the police when he was just 15 years old out of fear that he was vulnerable to radicalization and violent extremism.

He had been in a deradicalization program between October 2017 and May 2018 after his school referred him to the Prevent program.

After his arrest, Hussein told police that he had Asperger syndrome and memory problems, later refusing to answer questions.

Searches of his bedroom at his mother’s home in south-east London uncovered a book of spells, handwritten demonic symbols and the two blood pacts.

Hussein was charged with the murder of the two sisters on July 2, 2020, and on July 6, 2021, was jailed for life with a minimum sentence of 35 years after being convicted of two counts of murder and possession of a knife.

Why were two police officers accused of misconduct?

PC Deniz Jaffer, 48, and PC Jamie Lewis, 33, were charged with misconduct in the month after Bibaa and Nicole were killed for taking selfies next to their bodies and sharing the photos.

The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) launched an investigation into the actions of the police officers and, after the images were found to have been shared in one WhatsApp group, others were investigated. six officers for failing to question or report the behavior.

At the time, Ms. Smallman said: “This has taken our pain to another place.

“If we ever needed an example of how toxic it has become, those cops felt so safe, so untouchable, that they felt like they could take pictures of dead black girls and send them.

“It speaks volumes to the spirit that runs through the Metropolitan Police.”

The pair were jailed for two years and nine months at a hearing at the Old Bailey in December 2021 after pleading guilty to misconduct in public office.

Judge Lucraft said: “The public rightly expects the highest standards from police officers.

“I am sure there will be many thousands of law enforcement officers in this country and abroad wholly appalled by his actions.

“It is egregious and inexplicable conduct.

“Here, the two of you not only breached the police cordon, with the effect that it had on the scene and the investigation, but then completely disregarded the privacy of the two victims of the horrific violence and their families so there can only be been some cheap thrill, praise, a kick, or some form of bragging by taking pictures and then passing them on to others.”
