Detectives investigating the murder of a father-of-three are offering a £20,000 reward for information that leads to the prosecution of those responsible for his death four years ago.

Bulent Kabala, 41, was shot on February 12 2018 in Cockfosters when he got out of his taxi after being hit by a van.

Mr Kabala was shot a number of times at close range, including in the head and chest, in Mount Pleasant and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Detective Inspector Matt Denby, who is leading the investigation into Mr Kabala's killing, believes the taxi driver was targeted.

The Metropolitan Police say CCTV showed he was trailed by a dark blue Ford Transit van into Mount Pleasant at around 11.45pm. As Mr Kabala, who lived in Enfield, entered a roundabout at the junction with Edgeworth Road, he was hit by the van.

Mr Kabala, who was on his way to pick up a customer, got out of his silver Mercedes to assess the damage and it was then that he was shot.

The van, on stolen plates, fled and was found abandoned two days later in Pilgrims Close in Palmers Green.

Since that fateful day, four people have been arrested in connection with the Turkish-born taxi driver's death. However they have all been released with no further action at this time, police said.

DI Denby said: "This murder occurred four years ago but any information regarding the incident may still be as relevant now as it was then.

"The circumstances surrounding Bulent’s murder suggest that he was actively targeted and killed. There are individuals with information relating to this killing and its planning who have not yet come forward. For the sake of Bulent’s family and the community, I implore them to do so."

The detective says Mr Kabala's wife Sevitch and their children have been left "completely heartbroken" by what happened and the family, along with officers, are "pleading" for those with information to come forward.

A £20,000 reward is being offered for information which leads to the arrest and prosecution of those responsible for Mr Kabala's murder.
