Nigerian youngster stabbed to death in London

A Nigerian teenager, Israel Ogunsola who resides in London has been stabbed to death. His death, together with the death of a man in his 50s, takes the London capital’s suspected murder toll to more than 50 in just three months. Isreal died in the shadow of a railway bridge on Link Street at the junction with Morning Lane in Hackney at 8.24pm, about half an hour after being stabbed and despite the efforts of police officers, paramedics and a trauma doctor from London’s air ambulance.

“He was a young boy from the community. I literally saw him riding past every single day, every day I saw him from the balcony and I see him riding past just going about his business.”

The Metropolitan police said officers on patrol on Morning Lane found him at 8pm after they were flagged down by a driver who told them there had been an incident nearby.
