The courageous mum-of-two who stood up toLee Rigby’skillers “doesn’t care” that one of the terrorists is fighting for his life with coronavirus – and says society’s “not going to miss him”.
Michael Adebowale – who is serving a 45-year jail sentence for his part in the Fusilier’s murder – contracted the disease earlier this month.
The 29-year-old was taken from Broadmoor last week and is said to be “in a very bad way” as he receives oxygen, The Sun reported.
He and Michael Adebolajo, 36, ran over Lee, 25, outside his barracks in Woolwich, south east London, before hacking him to death in 2013.
Ingrid Loyau-Kennett, 56, from Helston in Cornwall, jumped off a bus heading through the area after spotting Lee’s body lying in the road.
She then entered into a conversation with Michael Adebolajo moments after the killing in a bid to prevent more violence.
Responding to the diagnosis, Ms Loyau-Kennett told the Daily Star: “I don’t have sympathy at all for any of them, I don’t care.”
Along with Gemini Donnelly-Martin and her mum Amanda, Ms Loyau-Kennett was dubbed one of the "Angels of Woolwich" after the women tended to the soldier’s body.
She believes Adebowale “was not mentally strong enough” to challenge Adebolajo, and has questioned the length of his sentence.
The younger terrorist was believed to have been heavily influenced by Adebolajo.

In 2008, Adebowale turned to drug dealing and was later stabbed by a professional bare-knuckle fighter and crack addict who also killed one of his friends, 18-year-old Faridon Alizada.
The attack left him with post-traumatic stress disorder and he began suffering from delusions.
Ms Loyau-Kennett, originally from France, argued that Adebowale did not have the same “mental capacity” as Adebolajo.
However, asked if she would feel any sympathy if he died from coronavirus, she responded: “No. I mean, if I had to feel something, it would be for the mother – because whatever, it remains her son.”

Ms Loyau-Kennett added: “If he dies, well sorry, that’s called destiny.”
After the attack, Adebolajo claimed he was “a soldier of” Allah and said the killing was an act of war.
However, it was described as a “betrayal of Islam” during their trial.
Lee’s killers targeted him because he was wearing a Help for Heroes hooded top.

The dad-of-one’s army career included tours of duty in Cyprus, Germany and Afghanistan, and Lee would proudly wear his red tunic as a drummer outside Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and the Tower of London.
Adebolajo was given a whole-life term and accomplice Michael Adebowale was jailed for a minimum of 45 years after the murder.
Adebowale has spent three periods in Broadmoor Hospital as of October 2019 last year, and was expected to spend the next "five or 10 years there”, Reading Crown Court heard at a separate trialin which he pleaded guilty to assaulting a nurse .
Ms Loyau-Kennett added: “If he dies of Covid, he dies of Covid. Sorry for the mother, but that’s it…society’s not going to miss him.”
