Babatunde was reportedly stabbed on February 7, 2014 and later died after being rushed to the hospital.

A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as a single stab wound to the heart.

The victim is said to have become the inadvertent focus of an attack by a group after a disturbance on a 155 bus spilled was taken unto the streets.

He had not been on the bus but was waiting at the bus stop when the disturbance spilled out onto the pavement at Stockwell station.

As he attempted to get away from the fracas when he was targeted, he was then chased and attacked by the group.

During the attack one of the attackers was witnessed waving a knife, as Babafemi fell to the ground.

Babafemi managed to run to his car which was a short distance away but, as a result of his injuries, crashed his car into the back of a bus soon after.
