A man has been charged with double murder after the shooting of a mother-of-nine and her nephew.
Obina Ezeoke, 24, is accused of killing Annie Besala Ekofo, 53, and her nephew Bervil Kalikaka-Ekofo, 21.They were gunned down at a flat in East Finchley, north London, on Thursday shortly after 6.30am.
Scotland Yard said Ezeoke, of no fixed address, is to appear in custody at Hendon Magistratesâ€™ Court in north west London on Wednesday.
Four other people, including a child, who were also inside the address at the time were not harmed.
A post-mortem examination into Bervilâ€™s death was conducted last week at Northwick Park Hospital Mortuary, concluding that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head. The 20-year-old man remains on bail until a date in late October.
Bervilâ€™s mother, Maymie Botamba, who lost two family members in the shooting, paid tribute to her â€œperfectâ€ son.Â â€œHe was my friend, my best friend, my everything,â€ she said.
