In an emotional interview with the Standard, the victim’s mother called for justice for her son’s death.

She told the newspaper: “Our children are being killed and nothing is being done. It happens in broad daylight, every day they are being attacked. They are dying like dogs. It’s making our lives a living hell.”

A post-mortem examination took place yesterday at Greenwich mortuary and gave thecause of death as “multiple incised wounds”.

In February another young man, 20-year-old Dwayne Simpson, from Stockwell, died in hopsital after being found stabbed in St John’s Crescent Brixton. Earlier the same month Babafemi Junaid, 18, was killed by a single stab wound to the chest. He was found slumped in a car near Stockwell Tube Station.

Police are asking anyone with information which may help them to contact the incident room on 020 8721 4054 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.



  1. This is just to sad, known him nearly all his life. My heart goes out to his family, stay strong.

  2. I have known this young man’s father for many years as I was a regular at his restaurant.
    Alim’s Dad is a smashing bloke, my daughter went to the same primary as his youngest. He has my heartfelt sympathy at this time.

    This tragic story makes me glad that I have moved out of Brixton and London recently after living there for nigh on 2 decades; my daughter does not to grow up with this shit. NOT A PLACE FOR KIDS.

  3. This is just too much , when your son or brother steps out you fear for thier life. It’s so hard to live in south London it’s terrible. It’s about time parents step up too, some parents/guardians know or have a feeling what thier kids are up to but choose to ignore it , it’s about time they step up , the police can’t do it alone.
