The arrest was the result of a joint operation between Northamptonshire Police and West Midlands Police.

Detective Chief Inspector Ally White, of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit Major Crime Team, said: “While Mr Jallow’s murder took place a year ago, our investigation remains ongoing.

“We hope news of this arrest may jog the memory of anyone in the area at the time he was killed.

“Anyone who remembers something which may be helpful to our investigation is asked to call 101 and ask for the Operation Network team.”
