At around 4:30 a.m. on Saturday, December 22, 2007, the Windsor Police Service (WPS) responded to an emergency call in an alley behind the Box Office Bar, in the 500 block of Pelissier Street, in the downtown area of Windsor, Ontario. A fight had broken out and a man was shot multiple times. The victim, Luis Acosta-Escobar, later succumbed to his injuries, leaving behind his family, partner and then 19-month old son.
Mohamud Abukar Hagi is wanted by WPS on a Canada-wide warrant for the murder of Acosta-Escobar. Hagi has been actively evading arrest since 2007. He has since reportedly been seen in Windsor, Toronto and Edmonton. He has been known to disguise himself as a woman to evade the authorities.
Anyone offering Hagi assistance in evading arrest may be considered an accessory after the fact. Section 240 of the Criminal Code of Canada states that “every one who is an accessory after the fact to murder is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for life.”
