Three suspects charged in murder case

Three teenagers have been charged with the murder of a Chingford teaching assistant who was stabbed to death as he tried to sell his laptop through Gumtree.

The deceased, Michael Adegbite

Montel Ajayi, of Fowley Close in Waltham Cross, Isacc Owen-Brady of Blossom Lane, Enfield and Christopher Nzeh of Fountain Row in Hitchin, all 18-years-old, have been charged with conspiracy to rob and the murder of Michael Adegbite on Sunday July 19th.

Nzeh has also been charged with possession of an offensive weapon.

All three have been detained in custody and are due to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court today at 10am.

The deceased, Michael Adegbite, 28, who worked as a fitness instructor at Leyton Leisure Centre and a teaching assistant at Heathcote School in Chingford, was attacked after he advertised his laptop on Gumtree.

The University of East London graduate  in and friend were confronted by three men when they went to meet the buyers in Enfield.

Police believe Mr Adegbite was lured to Auckland Close in a bid to steal from him.

But Mr Adegbite and his friend managed to snatch the Macbook laptop back and the suspects ran off.

Police say that a short time later, a second friend joined the victim and the three men set out to look for the group.

A confrontation took place with a group of men afterwards, and Mr Adegbite was stabbed once in the chest in Lackmore Road, Enfield, at about 6.55pm.

He died at the roadside 30 minutes later.
