14-Year- Old Nigerian Brutally Murdered With Sword In London

A 36-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder.

Anjorin attended Bancroft’s, the same independent day school as Grace O’Malley-Kumar, one of the victims in the Nottingham stabbing incident.

In an official statement, the Metropolitan Police reported that the suspect rammed his van into a property on Laing Close, resulting in a collision that injured a 33-year-old man.

Subsequently, the suspect physically assaulted the victim, causing a wound to the neck.

Additionally, a 35-year-old man sustained lacerations to his arm during an assault within a neighbouring residence.

Following these, the suspect proceeded to attack Anjorin.

It’s with great sadness that one of those injured in this incident… has died from their injuries,”

“He was taken to hospital after being stabbed and sadly died a short while after,” Chief Superintendent Stuart Bell from London’s Metropolitan Police told reporters at the scene.

According to Buckingham Palace, King Charles III expressed his disbelief at the stabbings and commended the bravery of the emergency services.

Following the murder of one of its former students in Nottingham less than a year ago, Bancroft’s School on Wednesday mourned the loss of another student, Daniel Anjorin, killed in a sword attack in London.

The independent school attended by Anjorin said in a statement on Wednesday that they had been left in “profound shock and sorrow” at the pupil’s death.

“He was a true scholar, demonstrating commendable dedication to his academic pursuits. His positive nature and gentle character will leave a lasting impact on us,” Bancroft’s in Woodford Green, near Hainault, said.
