After one year of the painful murder of John Ogunjobi, 16, in Tulse Hill, Uk police have continuously call out for anyone with useful information leading to the murder to come forward.
The British police further offered a £20,000 cash reward to be given to whosoever to gives useful information leading to the arrest of the perpetrators of the heinous crime.
The UK police were notified of the incident going on at Greenleaf Close, Tulse Hill at 10:53 pm, 5 November 2018. The police hurried along with the London Ambulance Service (LAS) and found John collapsed in the street with stab injuries.
The paramedics struggled to revive the 16-year-old but finally announced him dead when all efforts to keep him alive proved futile at 11:41 pm. Thereafter, a post-mortem examination that was carried out at Greenwich Mortuary revealed the cause of death as a stab injury.
“One year has passed since John was fatally attacked, but our determination to find those responsible and bring them to justice has not diminished.
“John Ogunjobi, was just 16-years-old and his life had barely begun. We believe he was attacked by a number of suspects, and know that the altercation was witnessed by a number of people, some of whom have still not come forward to tell police what they know. It is also quite likely that some of John’s own friends may hold vital information, but are yet to talk to us.
“I am all too aware that some young people may be reading who want to engage with us but are afraid that someone might find out. If that is you, I want you to know that we can work together, in the strictest of confidence. Or, if you prefer, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, 100% anonymously, and tell us what you know that way.
“It cannot be right that a young man’s murderer is walking around free while his devastated family still wake each day, not having properly begun to mourn yet. Work with us and we can get the justice John’s family to deserve.” Supt Richard Vandenbergh, investigating said.
Detectives are asking ”anyone who may have seen a black Audi Q5 car in or around the Tulse Hill area at the time of the incident to come forward and speak to them.
“Anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room on 020 8721 4961 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111,” said Met Police.
