17 Year Old Nigerian Boy Stabbed To Death In Notting Hill, West London [PHOTOS]Tuesday, July 05, 2016
A 17-year-old Nigerian boy Fola Orebiyi, was attacked in Portobello Road by a gang of youths who chased him on bicycles.
A teenager, who wished to remain anonymous, said:
'I know what happened, he was protecting a friend over a silly beef which turned violent.'
A mother-of-one said she watched police resuscitate the teen after he collapsed. The woman, who asked not to be named, said:
'It was traumatising.
'It took half an hour for the ambulance to arrive even though there are hospitals all around.
'I spoke to the person who called the police and he said it took them so long to get here.
'The police were all on him trying to resuscitate.
'All I could see were his feet and lots of blood.
'I'm a mum, for me this is so sad, that's someone's child. That's someone's baby.'
Fola was studying for his A Levels at a nearby school, and was stabbed in the neck in front of shocked passersby and tourists, while drinkers in the Portobello Star pub rushed to try to help him.
'People saw him fall down and try to get to his feet again,' witness Mark Gettleson told the Evening Standard. 'Police and paramedics tried to resuscitate him for a long time, they did everything they could.'
A 15-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of murder....Sad, may his soul rest in peace.
