MORE than 30 well-armed police officers in uniform and plain clothes yesterday watched the funeral of reputed gang leader Selwyn “Robocop” Alexis, who was gunned down on Sunday while at his grocery and car wash in Enterprise, Chaguanas.
Leader of the Jamaat-al-Muslimeen Yasin Abu Bakr, who was present at yesterday’s funeral, said: “I didn’t notice (the police). I did not make a headcount.”
He said the National Security Ministry should do something to keep children on vacation occupied or they might get into trouble.
