Renewed appeal over west London stabbing

KILLED: Adeniyi Lateef Shode

A YEAR after the death of 21-year-old Adeniyi Lateef Shode, detectives have renewed their appeal for information to catch those responsible for his murder.

Adeniyi, known to friends as Edna, was fatally stabbed in Northolt, west London, on May 2, 2011 – he later died in hospital.

The 21-year-old’s mother, Antonia Frances, said: "All our family thinks about Ade every day. We remember his laugh and smile and he always remains in our thoughts.

"It still hurts us to think that whoever killed Ade is still out there and we pray that it doesn't happen to anyone else's family."

Police are offering a £20,000 reward for any information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person responsible for his murder.

Detective Inspector Andy Manning, the officer leading this investigation, said: "Ade Shode was a young man who was murdered in the prime of his life. It is suspected Ade knew his attacker and he was murdered because of a previous disagreement between him and the killer.

"I am appealing to anyone who has any information with regard to this senseless killing to come forward and give information to police. In particular I am keen to speak with anyone who has any knowledge as to who killed Ade, why he was killed and who else was present during this unprovoked and violent attack.”

There have been four arrests in connection with the murder. They have been bailed to return on dates in June pending further enquiries.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Incident Room at Hendon on 020 8358 0300; if you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
