An 18-year-old man will appear in court tomorrow charged with the murder of Kwame Ofosu-Asare on Moorlands Estate, Brixton.
Nathanial Okusanya, from Lambeth, was charged by police yesterday over the fatal stabbing and will appear at Croydon Magistrates’ Court tomorrow (Monday).
Police say 17-year-old Kwame, from Catford, was attacked as he walked from a music studio to a friend’s aunt’s home near Adelaide Close on 2 March.
He died in an ambulance of multiple stab wounds.
Members of the public reported a “dark and heavy” atmosphere around Brixton, Streatham Hill and West Norwood in the days and hours leading up to the murder. Police reported seven violent crimes involving knives in and around Brixton in the week before the fatal stabbing.
Earlier in the day of Kwame’s murder another teen, Garfield Stuart, was left blind in one eye after being stabbed 37-time on board a bus near West Norwood bus station.
A 22-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of Kwame’s murder earlier this month was released with no further action.
