A 15-year-old Nigerian boy identified as Jordan Gbolade Jaiyeola, has been stabbed to death in a fight after a birthday party at a community centre in east London.
Three teenage boys have been arrested on suspicion of murder and have been taken to separate police stations for questioning. The teenage drill rapper known locally as Jordan Douherty, was found with knife wounds and died at the scene.
The Met Police said they were called to the centre in Romford on Saturday night after fighting broke out after up to 100 youths mobbed the event. Jordan is the youngest victim to be fatally stabbed in London this year. More than 80 murder investigations have now been launched across London this year alone.
The aspiring rap star appeared in a number of YouTube videos with the group C17 under the alias Young Valenti. Their lyrics reference gang and knife violence, rapping about using “skengs” and “shanks” (knives) to “dip” and “splash” (stab) their “opps” (gang rivals)
