A£15,000 cash reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrests of three men following a fatal drive-by shooting in Roydon.

In the early hours Saturday, June 13, Robert Powell was shot to death outside rental bungalow in Water Lane following a party.

A group of men drove up to the address and fired several gunshots at a group of people outside the house before driving off, Essex Police said.

The 50-year-old from Grays died in hospital the next day.

Two women in their 20s were also injured in the incident but survived their wounds.

Crimestoppers are offering three £5,000 rewards for anonymous information that leads to the arrest of three men who are wanted in connection with the killing.

Anybody with information concerning Israar Shah, 36, from Brentwood, Nana Oppong, 40, and Temitope Adeyinka, 36, both from Stratford, should contact the charity online or by calling 0800 555 111.

Nana Oppong is 5ft 6ins tall and has a proportionate build. He is also known as ‘Enz’ and has links to several areas in east London.

Temitope Adeyinka is 5ft 8ins tall and has a medium build. He is also called ‘Limo’ and has links to east London, including Bow.

Israar Shah is 6ft 1ins tall and has a slim build. He also goes by the name ‘Slick’ and has links with east London and Romford.

Phil Breckon, Crimestoppers eastern regional manager, said: "“This is a shocking incident that should never happen. Our charity believes in safe streets and safe communities and we hope that these rewards and our appeal will help to bring about justice.

“We are appealing to anybody with any information on the whereabouts of Nana Oppong, Temitope Adeyinka and Israar Shah to do the right thing and to tell our charity what you know, 100 per cent anonymously. What you tell us can make all the difference in keeping others safe from harm and no information is too insignificant to tell us.

“Crimestoppers has been taking crime information since our charity was formed over 32 years ago. Every day over a thousand people contact us online and over the phone. We have always kept our promise of anonymity to the millions of people who have trusted us. Nobody will know you contacted us, only you and you may be eligible for a reward.”

It is a possibility that these wanted men may have left the country.
