Police Nab 4 over Nigerian Teen Knifed to Death in London

Detectives in the UK have arrested four men, all in their 20s, over their alleged role in the murder of  Nigerian teenager, John Ogunjobi.

16-year-old Ogunjobi was stabbed in South London on 5 November 2018 and later died from the injuries sustained from the wounds.

The police have since made some arrests and brought four men, aged 22, 20, 21 and 23, into custody at south London police stations for questioning.

Cops were initially called to Greenleaf Close, Tulse Hill, shortly before 11pm on the day of the stabbing, finding the teenager collapsed in the street with stab injuries.

A post-mortem examination held on Thursday, 8 November, at Greenwich Mortuary gave the cause of death as a stab wound.

An investigation is underway by detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command, led by Detective Chief Inspector Richard Vandenbergh.

“I am appealing to anyone who has information that could assist this investigation to come forward and speak to police,” Vandenbergh said.

“We believe the victim was attacked by a number of suspects and the altercation would have undoubtedly drawn the attention of those who were in the vicinity.

“Did you see or hear anything? If so, no matter how insignificant you think it may be, please call – your information could prove to be crucial.”

Metropolitan police officers have also appealed to anyone who may have captured footage or images of the incident on their mobile phone to come forward.
