ALI: 'I TOLD THE DOCTORS I AM NOT SAFE'

BLACKHEATH A paranoid schizophrenic who axed his housemate to death after walking out of hospital left a note on the body saying: 'I told doctors I am not safe'. Ahmed Ali, 39, told medics at the scandal-hit Oxleas Hospital Trust he had stopped taking his medication just days before killing Abdullah Barre Jama, 45, in a frenzied axe attack. He confessed to feeling tired and 'persecuted' and was due to be transferred to a psychiatric unit for further treatment. Ali had a 15-year history of mental health problems, including violent urges towards himself and others, and Mr Jama himself told doctors his flatmate was 'crazy'. But Ali walked out of hospital on April 30, 2009, and repeatedly stabbed Mr Jama in the head, neck and arms at their flat in Blackheath, southeast London, on May 3, 2009.
