19-year-old Nigerian, Eniola Aluko shot dead in London

Eniola Aluko, 19, was on Friday shot dead at Plumstead, London.

According to UK’s Metropolitan Police, Aluko, who is from Thamesmead, died after sustaining gunshot wounds to the neck and chest.

Metropolitan Police said they were called to the scene, a car park on Hartville Road, just before 5:00 p.m. on Friday.

Aluko was found with critical injuries and died at the scene.

A post-mortem examination held on Saturday gave the cause of death as a gunshot wound to the neck and chest.

Four other people, all teenagers, who were 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.

Already police have arrested an 18-year-old man on suspicion of murder.

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

Metropolitan Police has revealed that they had informed the next-of-kin of the deceased.
