A 25-year-old Nigerian Born London Based model has been stabbed dead, in what Police described as a “robbery gone wrong”.
Sources close to the family have confirmed to IBTimes UK that Harry was the victim. The Met Police is yet to formally confirm the identity of the victim. Uzoka worked as a model for Premier Model Management.
Uzoka suffered a knife wound to his chest and reportedly staggered through an estate before collapsing on the pavement in Old Oak Road, East Acton.
The incident unfolded shortly before 4pm on Thursday afternoon (11 January) and the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
“This is another tragic murder with a young male victim who has met a violent death,” said Met Police Detective Inspector Beverley Kofi.
“We believe that the incident started Ollgar House, in Ollgar Close and the victim was assaulted and stabbed before staggering and collapsing in Old Oak Road. We believe there were a number of people involved, but we are still working to establish the circumstances and a possible motive.
Kofi confirmed that two men, aged 27 and 28, were arrested nearby on suspicion of murder and remain in custody.
