The victim of last Thursdays fatal stabbing at Camberwell, South East London has been identified as Clinton Evbota
Described as a happy smiling pure hearted boy, the 18 year old was murdered near his childhood home on the Brandon Estate, Camberwell after being chased into a green area by some residential addresses by a group of males, who then set upon him after he fell to the ground. The group inflicted fatal injuries before fleeing.
Close sources informed us that his family had moved out of South East London to Dartford in order to keep the teenager away from the target of dangerous local elements, but he kept sneaking back into London.
Acting Detective Chief Inspector Jo Sidaway, investigating, said: “Upon police arrival at the scene a large crowd had gathered. While we have spoken to several people already, I believe there are many more who have not yet spoken to us but may have crucial information that would benefit our investigation.
“If you are worried about telling the police what you saw, I would tell you that any information you have would be treated in the strictest of confidence. Please do the right thing and contact us, or use Crimestoppers anonymously if you so wish. All that matters is that you tell us what you saw.
“We are in the early stages of our investigation and retain an open mind as to what the motive could be for this horrendous incident.
Clinton was described by friend Ojo as a “pure hearted boy who never hurt anyone and who was never involved in knife crime or anything like that”
His killing came just hours after the fatal stabbing of schoolboy Baptista Adjei on a bus in Statford.
The 15 year old, from North Woolwich, was found critically injured on Stratford Broadway on Thursday afternoon.
He died just minutes later.
