The Metropolitan Police in UK has confirmed the death of Eniola Aluko, a 19-year-old Nigerian , who was on Friday shot dead at Plumstead, London.

The police were called to the scene, a car park on Hartville Road, just before 5:00 p.m. on Friday, but Aluko was already dead from gunshot injuries to his chest and neck.

While 18-year-old man has been detained on suspicion of murder, other teenagers arrested in relation to the crime have been granted bail pending the start of trial in early July.


Detective Inspector John Marriott, said, “I am continuing to appeal for anyone who was in the area at the time, who saw or heard anything suspicious to contact police.

“The shooting took place not far from Plumstead Railway Station and I would urge anyone who was commuting to or from this station to come forward. It was also sunny at the time and a number of people would have been enjoying the weather in the area of Plumstead Gardens; I need you to come forward.

“Although we have now made five arrests I am continuing to ask for your help to progress this investigation.”
