Renewed appeal over murder of Edgware man
Police have renewed an appeal for information in connection to the murder of man two years ago - offering a reward of £20,000.
Adeniyi Lateef Shode (known as Ade or Enda), from Edgware, was found collapsed near the junction of Rowdell Road, Ealing Road and Kensington Road at approximately 8.50pm on Monday May 2, 2011.
The 21-year-old had been stabbed and was taken to St Mary's Hospital where he died of his injuries that evening.
Detective Chief Inspector Andy Partridge, said: "Ade Shode was a young man who was murdered in the prime of his life. Now, over two years on, we continue to investigate his murder and appeal for fresh information.
"We still strongly believe that Ade knew his attacker and that he was murdered due to a previous disagreement between him and the killer.
"I am appealing to anyone who has any information about this senseless killing to come forward and give information to police.
"It may be that as time has passed someone may now feel able to help police bring those responsible to justice for this brutal killing."
Mr Lateef’s mother Antonia Frances said: "All our family thinks about Ade every day. We remember his laugh and smile and he always remains in our thoughts.
"It still hurts us to think that whoever killed Ade is still out there and we pray that it doesn't happen to anyone else's family.
"After two years I'd ask anyone who may be able to help us to speak to the police. If you are not happy talking to the police then please tell someone and get them to pass the information on.
“What is important is that the police can track down whoever took my son from us."
A reward of up to £20,000 is available for any information leading to the identification arrest and prosecution of the people responsible.
Police are calling anyone with any information to get in contact via the 020 8358 0300 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
