Boney M singer’s Muslim convert brother is jailed for life for hiring a hitman to kill Syrian preacher

Iraqi war veteran Leslie Cooper, 37, executed Abdul Hadi Arwani, 48, with a MAC-10 machine gun as he sat in his Volkswagen Passat in Wembley, northwest London.

The hit was ordered by mosque ‘ruler’ Khalid Rashad, 62, the brother of singer Liz Mitchell, who fronted the 1970s chart-topping disco band.

Rashad had been locked in a legal battle with Mr Arwani as he tried to oust him from the An-Noor Cultural and Community Centre in Church Road, Acton.

Cooper and Rashad – both Jamaican-born Muslim converts – were jailed for at least 32 years each for the murder earlier this year after a trial.
