Two major arrest have been made in connection to the murder of Adeniyi Shode in 2011

Police investigating the murder of a young man sometime five years ago has made two new arrests. The arrests today, Wednesday May 4, were made during the investigation in line with the fatal stabbing of Adeniyi Lateef Shode (known as Aden or Enda - pictured above) in Northoit in 2011.


Detectives from the Met's Homicide and Major Crime Command (HMCC) arrested a 23-year-old man and a 24-year-old man on suspicion of murder.

They were arrested at addresses in north London by officers acting upon fresh information regarding the killing of the 21-year-old.

Following this new development, officers continue to appeal for witnesses and information and are offering a reward of up to £20,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person or persons responsible.
Adeniyi, of Edgware, was discovered collapsed close to the junction of Rowdell Road, Ealing Road, and Kensington Road, at approximately 20:50hrs on 2 May 2011.

He had suffered stab injuries. He was taken to St Mary's Hospital and died of his injuries later that night. His mother Antonia Francis said in an earlier appeal: "All our family thinks about Aden every day. We remember his laugh and smile and he always remains in our thoughts.

"It still hurts us to think that whoever killed Aden is still out there and we pray that it doesn't happen to anyone else's family. I would ask anyone who may be able to help us to speak to the police. If you are not happy talking to the police then please tell someone and get them to pass the information on. What is important is that the police can track down whoever took my son from us."

Detective Inspector Garry Moncrieff, from the Homicide and Major Crime Command, said:

"Although five years have passed, officers remain committed to bringing Aden's killers to justice. Allegiances may have changed over this time and those who may know who is responsible for Aden's death may not have the same sense of duty to those involved. We strongly believe that people out there may know who murdered Aden and why. Anyone with any detail, no matter how minor, is urged to contact police. It may provide closure to Aden's family who want to see justice done."

On 6 May 2011 a man [A - 20yrs] and two women [B - 22yrs; C - 18yrs] from the Northolt area were arrested in Berkshire in connection with the murder. On 9 May 2011 a man [D - 19 ys] from the Northolt area was arrested in connection with the murder. They were subsequently released; no one has ever been charged with Aden's murder.
