Police investigating an attempted murder in Rotherhithe have released CCTV footage in an effort to trace a second suspect.

Officers wish to speak to 29-year-old Igho Ejeta following the incident at Plush Barbers at Rotherhithe New Road last year, for which a man is already serving a life sentence.

Ejeta is described as a black man, 5ft 11in of proportionate build and has a long scar that runs across his face and across the bridge of his nose.

He was last known to have black cropped Afro hair and has links to Lewisham and the south London area.

DC Jo Ross, from the Trident and Area Crime Command , said: “Although we have one man safely behind bars, we urgently need to trace Ejeta in connection with this incident.

“We would ask anyone with information to come forward in the strictest confidence and help us find this man.”

Igho Ejeta is wanted for questioning in relation to the incident

On Friday, May 8 2015, a 38-year-old woman was shot in the leg while she was sitting in the shop alongside other customers and children.

She was an innocent bystander who was caught up in a violent altercation between several men that began outside the shop.

The fight continued inside and 27-year-old Joel Johnson, of Baildon Street, London, appeared in the doorway and produced a handgun before opening fire.

The bullet passed through the woman’s leg and was later found on the floor. She was taken to a south London hospital where she was treated for her injuries.

Johnson was convicted by a jury at the Old Bailey in December 2015.

Anyone with information about Ejeta’s whereabouts should contact officers on 020 8247 4863 or via 101. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
