A Nigerian teenager, has been stabbed to death in the UK. The victim, Fola Orebiyi, who completed his General Certificate of Secondary Education, GCSE, at Holland Park in London, was studying for his A levels at Chelsea Academy before his death.
He was reportedly involved in a fight in a nearby estate with a gang of youths, who chased him into the busy road where he was stabbed in the neck in front of shocked passersby and tourists. Following the stabbing, he collapsed and bled to death and all efforts by the Police and paramedics to resuscitate him proved abortive.
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has condemned the gruesome murder of another Nigerian teenager in London. She called for full investigation of the incident and urged the UK government to ensure justice prevailed. While condoling the family of the deceased boy on the ugly incident, she prayed God to give the bereaved family the fortitude to bear the painful loss. She said that while Nigeria would not condone crime and criminal tendencies, it took exception to the harassment, killing and execution of its nationals abroad.
