Killer Michael Adebolajo is said to have told inmates he regrets killing soldier Lee Rigby
One of the two jihadists who murdered soldier Lee Rigby has admitted his guilt in a jail confession, it has been reported.
Michael Adebolajo is said to have revealed his ‘regret’ and plans to write to Mr Rigby’s family to apologise for the horrific slaying opposite the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, London, in 2013.
The 33-year-old is understood to have expressed his remorse to fellow inmates and prison staff.
He is even said to have admitted he ‘misinterpreted’ the Koran having cited the Islam’s holy book moments after the attack, which he carried out with accomplice Michael Adebowale, now 27.
A source told The Sun on Sunday: ‘Adebolajo is widely regarded as one of the most dangerous extremists in the prison system.
‘A month ago he approached a fellow inmate and a member of prison pastoral staff to say he finally regretted the murder and acknowledged he took an innocent life.’
According to other inmates Adebolajo now wants to apologise to Lee’s family.
The killer is currently serving life behind bars in high-security HMP Woodhill, outside Milton Keynes.

Lee’s mother Lyn Rigby is said to be repulsed by Adebolajo’s change of heart and will never forgive him for killing her son five years ago.
She told The Sun on Sunday: ‘To hear his killer say that Lee was innocent and that he regrets killing him is the ultimate kick in the teeth.’
The 51-year-old, from Middleton, Greater Manchester, has battled depression since the death of her son.
