Taofeek Lamidi Bio – Taofeek Lamidi Wiki
Taofeek Lamidi, a young man, stabbed in the heart on New Year’s Eve – two days before his birthday – was killed unlawfully, the East London Coroner’s court has ruled. Friends surrounded Taofeek Lamidi from Lambeth as he died from a “horrific” stab wound to the heart.
Taofeek Lamidi was 20 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
Police have issued an appeal in the hunt for a murder suspect who fled to Kenya after a man was repeatedly stabbed and left to die in a London street.
Taofeek Lamidi suffered ‘horrific injuries’ in the brutal New Year’s Eve attack five years ago.
The 20-year-old was found lying on Memorial Avenue in West Ham shortly after 7.30 pm, but despite the best efforts of medics, he could not be saved, and he was pronounced dead at 8.22 pm.
The Metropolitan Police says it believes his suspected killer, Ahmed Mohamed, fled to Kenya after the killing.
It has called for anyone who knows the 25-year-old’s whereabouts to contact them, adding that ‘Taofeek’s family deserves justice.’
Detective Chief Inspector Wayne Jolley said: ‘Almost five years have passed since this horrific incident that took a young man from his family, and our investigation very much remains ongoing.
‘Taofeek’s family deserves justice, and we will not rest until we locate those responsible and bring them before the courts.
‘If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of Ahmed Mohamed, then I urge you to please do the right thing, get in touch with us.’
He added: ‘Taofeek was repeatedly stabbed and was found lying in the street suffering horrific injuries from which he did not recover.
‘Violent incidents such as this have no place on London’s streets, and we are following up on several lines of inquiry to locate Mohamed.
‘Memorial Avenue is a busy residential area close to West Ham station. I know that people in the area witnessed the incident, and I need them to come forward.
‘Any information provided will be treated with the strictest confidence.’
