British-Nigerian model Harry Uzoka was stabbed to death in East Acton, West London on Thursday in what has been described as a “robbery gone wrong”.

According to Evening Standard, “The 25-year-old was found collapsed on a pavement suffering a knife wound to his chest in west London on Thursday afternoon. He is understood to have staggered through a nearby estate before falling to the ground in front of horrified passers-by in Old Oak Road, East Acton.”

One woman told Evening Standard that her husband saw some teenage boys apparently mugging a man less than 20 yards from where Harry collapsed.

One woman said teenage boys had been seen apparently mugging a man less than 20 yards from where the victim collapsed.

“My husband was walking our child home from school. They walked past three teenage boys who were shouting and ran past the garages. The three teenage boys then pinned a guy up against the garage holding him by the neck.

They were shouting they were going to kill him. My husband said he heard them shouting to give them something. It sounded like they wanted something from him,” the woman said.

Efforts by the medics to to save him proved futile as he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigations are ongoing and no arrest has been made.

We pray for strength for the family at this time.

    Truly sad, even without guns in the UK, people are still being killed ruthlessly. Guns in yankee and machetes in Naija. May his soul rest in peace.

    These troubled teenagers are demons. With security cameras on every corner in London, these murderers will surely be caught and brought to justice. Unfortunately, Uzoka is gone forever

    RIP to this young man, however my bone of contention is with Mr passer by who conveniently witnessed all that went down but could do little about it, just a bunch of knife yielding kids and an adult male who couldn’t yell or call for help???well he was escorting his own child, tomorrow let’s pray it’s not his own child suffering the safe fate in this same unsafe streets of London.

      You are focusing on the wrong person. The passersby didn’t commit any crime neither are they the police. You might think that it would have helped if they interfered but that might just have led to their death too.
