Five youths have been arrested on suspicion of the murder of an 18-year-old man, police have said.

The youngsters, aged between 14 and 17, were detained alongside an 18-year-old man over the death of Clinton Evbota, who was stabbed to death in Brandon Estate, Camberwell, on October 10.

The six males - one 14-year-old, two 15-year-olds, two 17-year-olds, and an 18-year-old - were all detained on Friday, accused of killing Mr Evbota, and then bailed on Saturday.

Mr Evbota died at the scene near a nursery school, an hour after emergency services were called last Thursday.

Police said the teenager had been chased by a group of men who then set upon him on the ground, inflicting fatal injuries.

Evbota was the second murder in the capital in one day, as five hours before his death, Baptista Adjei was knifed to death outside a shopping centre in Stratford, east London.

His aunt, Aretha Adjei, told the London Evening Standard: "He had just finished school. He spoke to his mum on the phone about coming home after popping into McDonald's with a friend.

"Twenty minutes later he was stabbed to death."
