THE sentencing date for a mother whose son was jailed for his involvement in the murder of Raheem Hanif has been moved.

Bintu Conteh, of Approach Close in London, was found guilty of lying to police in attempts to protect her son – Shekuh – after the murder of Raheem.

Twenty-six-year-old Raheem was stabbed in the chest at about 6.55pm on Saturday, February 6, 2021 in Dulnan Close, Tilehurst.

Four people were jailed for his murder including Shekuh, who was 17 at the time. He was imprisoned for four years in prison for manslaughter and grievous bodily harm without intent.

Conteh, 39, reported her iPhone 11, that her son frequently used, as being stolen on the day of the murder.

She called 999 on February 8, two days later, and claimed three men approached her in Basingstoke and told her to hand the phone over or they will ‘take her head off’.

However, a jury at Reading Crown Court dismissed her claims of her phone being stolen and was found guilty of one count of perverting the course of justice in May this year.
