Glasgow attack: Knifeman’s family ‘shocked’ and hope the injured recover soon
The family of an asylum seeker who stabbed six people before being shot dead by police are “shocked” at his actions and hope the injured will be back with their families soon, Sky News has learned.
A friend of Badreddin Abadlla Adam, 28, said such an attack is not the “mentality” and “moral nature” of his community in Sudan.
Adam, who was killed in Glasgow on Friday afternoon, had been “miserable” and was suffering from “mental issues” and health problems, the friend, Almadi, added.
He also claimed Adam had been treated “improperly” at the Park Inn Hotel on West George Street, where he had been staying, and the food was of “bad quality”, causing Adam to suffer “abdominal disturbances” and “vomit every time”.
Adam was also kept in his room for a whole month, Almadi said, badly affecting his mental health.
Six people, including an officer, were injured during the knife attack there.
Almadi told Sky News that Adam arrived in the UK seven months ago, staying initially in Northern Ireland before being moved to Glasgow, and had been at the hotel for three months.
