Nigerian Man Stabbed To Death Outside Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

A Nigerian man, Okechukwu Iweha, was stabbed to death outside Tottenham Hotspur stadium before the North London club’s Premier League clash with Nottingham Forest on Sunday, Daily Mail reports.

Police and paramedics were called to Northumberland Park on the outskirts of the stadium just before 6am, where Iweha was found dead with a number of stab injuries.

CPR was administered on the 46-year-old but despite the efforts of paramedics, he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Although formal identification is yet to take place, the Met Police confirmed late Sunday night they believe the man killed was Iweha, who lived in the local area.

His next of kin have now been informed and are being supported by specialist officers. A post-mortem examination will be held at Haringey Mortuary later this week.

Detectives investigating the murder probe have issued another plea for witnesses to come forward following the incident.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, from the Specialist Crime Command, leading the investigation said: “I am urging anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious to please come forward and speak with us.

“We are working hard to build a timeframe to establish what has happened. Were you woken up by a disturbance, or did you see anyone running from the area? I would ask that you check any private CCTV or dash cam footage to see whether you captured anything that might assist us.

“Another family has been left grieving and we are doing everything we can to find answers to their questions and locate whoever is responsible for this murder.”

Chief Superintendent Caroline Haines, in charge of policing in Haringey, added: “Our thoughts remain with the family who are having to come to terms with his life being taken in such a violent way.

“I would like to reassure the local community that we are working around the clock to assist specialist detectives with their investigation.

“We are grateful to residents for their patience and understanding while we go about this crucial work. The crime scenes and forensic work will have caused disruption but it is imperative that we gather any evidence that might prove vital in leading to an arrest.

Meanwhile Spurs said they were doing their utmost to accommodate the investigation.

“Following an incident in which an individual has lost their life, we are doing everything to accommodate the ongoing Police investigation, which is of the utmost importance,” the club stated on X.

“This afternoon’s (Sunday) Premier League fixture against Nottingham Forest will go-ahead as scheduled, however the whole of Northumberland Park Road and Vicarage Road, as well as the north end of Worcester Avenue, will remain closed throughout.

“We shall update supporters as and when we can, and ask for fans to be patient and allow extra travel time. Our thoughts are with the victim’s family and all those affected.”
