TVC N. UK Researcher, Uche Igwe has said the government should always act immediately they get an information, no matter how little it is.
The researcher who works with the University of Sussex U.K. is of the opinion that a lot needs to be done about security. He said during a live interview on TVC News Breakfast Show on (5th of May 2017), that, ‘the police and the intelligence agency cannot continue to keep quiet, they should act on every tip off. They should act proactively and not act only when an attack has taken place.’
An eye-witness who was standing with his wife at the entrance of London Bridge underground station described the attacker and how he “coldly” attacked a man.
He said: “We saw people running away and then I saw a man with quite a large blade, at least 10-inches, stabbing a man three times.
“He was stabbing him quite coldly, and then the victim slumped to the ground.”
Describing the attacker, he added: “I think he was black, dark-skinned, red tracksuit on, with a red hoodie.
“He walked quite boldly along with another guy in the direction of the Southwark Tavern pub.
“Glass bottles and tables were thrown at them, and then we heard gunshots.”
One sobbing woman said: “We were drinking in the Hawksmoor when all of a sudden a group of police ran out screaming at us to get down on the ground.
“We heard there had been an incident but we had no idea what was going on, it was so frightening.”
One terrified woman said she was at a restaurant when police swarmed on the area.
She said police were firing weapons: “We had to run. There was loads of shooting.”
Officers were seen dragging startled diners and revellers out of restaurants and bars and telling them to run.
A witness named Martin said: “There’s been about eight of them stabbed. I ran up to see if they were all right but people were already with them. I was bloody terrified.
“I thought is that real? If we had of been on the other side of the road, it could have been us.”
