Police arrested the man this morning over the murder of Abdul Basith Mohammed who owned a Kuraby restaurant.

He died on the front lawn of his property.

The arrest follows a lengthy investigation by local detectives and the homicide squad.

Mr Mohammed was known by many as Abdul Basith.

The Courier-Mail previously revealed there were issues between Mr Basith and relatives after he took his brother's stepdaughter as his bride, despite already being married.
