Police arrest Nigerian man for stabbing mother to death in London

by Salami Azeez

Police in the UK have detained 28-year-old Nicolas Aina for stabbing his 64-year-old mother Caroline Adeyelu on Sunday in Dagenham, east London.

Aina was accused of killing his mother and attempting to kill a woman in her 30s whose identity has not been made public.

After an alleged attack, Adeyelu was declared dead at the scene after police were called to a residence in Auriel Avenue shortly after 9:30 on Sunday night, according to Evening Standard.

The second woman, who also had stab wounds, was taken right away to the hospital for additional care. Her condition was not thought to be life-threatening.

On Monday, Aina went at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court, where he was sentenced to a day in jail with a Thursday appearance at the Old Bailey.

On Sunday, police in Dagenham, east London, looked into the home where the alleged assault occurred.

The incident was described by police as “really disturbing,” and a neighbor told how screaming could be heard on Sunday night.

Detective Superintendent Richard Vandenbergh of the East Area Command unit commented on the incident after it occurred on Sunday. He said: “This is a truly shocking incident that has resulted in one woman dying and a second suffering serious injuries and will understandably cause concern within the local community.

“A man has been arrested and remains in custody and it appears this was an isolated incident confined to a single address.

“Residents will have woken up this morning to find a large police presence in the area.

“I want to reassure people that this is standard practice when dealing with such a serious incident so specialist officers can gather evidence as quickly and securely as is possible.

“You will also see local officers in the area; if you have concerns or information that could help then please speak to them.”
