AN 18-YEAR-OLD man has been charged with the murder of Catford teenager Kwame Ofosu-Asare.

Nathaniel Okusanya, from Lambeth, will appear at Croydon Magistrates' Court tomorrow (April 2), accused of killing Kwame.

The 17-year-old was found with fatal stab wounds in Adelaide Close on the Moorlands Estate in Brixton, on the evening of March 2.

Kwame and his friend had visited a recording studio in Brixton and were on their way to the friend's relative's house when they were chased by two young men and assaulted, police said.

Kwame, who lived in Catford, south-east London, died in the ambulance which was taking him to hospital.

A post-mortem examination revealed he had died from multiple stab wounds.

Anyone with information or who was in the Moorlands Estate at the time has been urged to call the incident room on 020 8721 4205; or, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
