A 15-year-old Ghanaian boy in the U.K has died after he was stabbed to death in a knife attack.
Baptista Adjei died Thursday in the London Borough of Newham.
Knife attacks have become a staple crime in London in recent times but little did we expect it would touch such a young Ghanaian.
Baptista, who was an up and coming footballer, died following an apparent stabbing attack.
Police were called to the scene of a knife crime outside Stratford Broadway near Tramway Avenue on Thursday.
Adjei was found on the scene with critical injuries, dying shortly after.
A second 15-year-old boy also sustained injuries but survived.
Police have since arrested another 15-year-old boy, who turned himself in on Friday.
In response to his passing, Adjei’s former club Mindset FC released this statement: “Dark day at Mindset as a former player sadly went to sleep tonight due to knife crime.
“This is becoming all too normal these days and humble young people are getting pushed into situations they don’t need to be in. Our thoughts and our prayers go out to your family.”
Condolences to the heartbroken Adjei family.
