Arsenal Pay Tribute To Nigerian Teenage Schoolboy Killed In Sword Attack In London

Arsenal paid tribute to Nigerian teenage schoolboy, Daniel Anjorin, who was killed on Tuesday in a sword attack in London on Tuesday, during their home game against Bournemouth on Saturday.

Anjorin, 14, a boyhood Arsenal fan, died in hospital after being attacked on a suburban east London street in Hainault while walking to school.

One Marcus Arduini Monzo, 36, has been charged with Anjorin’s murder.

Arsenal were given permission by the teenager’s family to pay their respects and applause rang round the Emirates Stadium after 14 minutes.

Fans at the Premier League match also held up a banner with ‘RIP Daniel’ written on it.

Anjorin was a pupil at Bancroft’s School, who described him as a “true scholar” who had a “positive nature and gentle character”.

Meanwhile, the 36-year-old suspect appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Thursday accused of Anjorin’s murder along with two counts of attempted murder, two counts of grievous bodily harm, aggravated burglary, and possession of a bladed article.

Four others were injured during Tuesday’s 22-minute rampage, including a female police officer who almost lost a hand.

    So they’ve started attacking each other with swords now? We’re back in the medieval times!
    Hope they lock him up and throw away the key.
