KPG (Kurdish Pride Gang) four set for July trial on murder conspiracy charges

December 14, 2007


NASHVILLE, Tennessee, -- Four members of the Nashville-based Kurdish Pride Gang who are also under investigation by federal authorities are now set to go to trial in Nashville in July on state charges that they conspired to kill a rival drug dealer and also attempted to kill a Metro Parks Police officer.

Assistant District Attorney Rob McGuire, the lawyers representing the four KPG members, and Criminal Court Judge Cheryl Blackburn agreed Thursday to begin the murder conspiracy and attempted murder trial on July 14.

Also scheduled to go to trial with the KPG four — Ako Nejad, Aso Nejad, Delosh Ahmed and Nechirvan Yahya — is Cedric Wicks, a fifth defendant included in the original state indictment but who fled to Michigan and who was apprehended later.

According to Metro Police and the District Attorney’s Office, the Nejad brothers, Ahmed, Yahya and Wicks lured two Nashville drug dealers to Edwin Warner Park on the night of Aug. 4, 2006, under the guise of engaging in a drug deal but with the intent of killing both dealers and anyone who might be with them.

Metro Parks Officer James Spray came upon the parties, and took fire while pursuing one vehicle attempting to flee the scene, according to the indictment. Spray was not injured.

While Metro Police and the District Attorney’s Office were building their case against Ako Nejad, Aso Nejad, Ahmed, Yahya and Wicks, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Nashville attempted to strike a deal with an associate of the four KPG members, according to documents included in the state’s case.

Metro Police have since indicated publicly that they are working the case against the KPG in Nashville along with the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
