Friend of Adebowale said he had converted to Islam and then 'changed' from fun-loving Christian schoolboy to violent fundamentalist...
Adebowale gave up alcohol and began distributing radical leaflets near his mother's home in Greenwich, south-east London.
Neighbours said his Nigerian-born mother, Juliet Obasuyi, was a probation officer and a ‘hard-working' Christian woman who raised Adebowale alone after separating from his father.
Police raided her flat and a property linked to Adebowale's father, Adeniyi Adebowale, in Holloway, North London.
Plain-clothes officers were seen carrying six plastic bags full of video cassettes and audio tapes from the Holloway flat.
The videos appeared to be labelled as football matches but one line of inquiry for police is likely to be whether Adebowale was interested in the type of jihadi videos watched by the July 2005 London bombers.
The four bombers were linked to an extreme bookshop in Leeds which distributed videos of terrorist acts, exhorting followers to emulate them.
