A 16-year-old girl has been arrested on suspicion of murder five days after the fatal stabbing of a man in Anerley.

Ayodeji Habeeb Azeez, 22, was murdered in broad daylight in Samos Road on November 4 after being attacked by a group.

Detectives arrested the teenage girl this morning (November 9).

She is the third to be questioned after two men, 19 and 21, were released under investigation.

Mr Azeez was stabbed multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene just before 1pm.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Cranwell: "It goes without saying that this incident would have stood out in what would normally have been a quiet environment.

"It appears that four or five male suspects were involved in the attack; both they and Ayodeji were seen to run into Samos Road from Grace Mews. By this point Ayodeji had been attacked. The suspects fled in one direction while Ayodeji went the other way before he collapsed.

"I am appealing to anyone who was in the area on Sunday afternoon and saw this attack, or the events surrounding the attack, to come forward and speak to police. This includes trying to establish if anyone was with Ayodeji when he was attacked.

"My officers are making progress as to why Ayodeji was in the area, why he came to be attacked and who was responsible for his murder, but we need information from the public to assist us in keeping the momentum of this investigation moving forward."
