Murder investigation: Two arrests today as £20,000 reward offer renewed

Detectives hunting the killers of a 21 year-old man who was found dead with stab wounds five years ago have made two new arrests – with a £20,000 reward still on offer.

The police revealed this evening that they apprehended the suspects, aged 23 and 24, today, in connection with the murder in Northolt.

Adeniyi Lateef Shode (known as Aden or Enda) died in 2011. Four people from Northolt were arrested in the same year but were subsequently released and no one has ever been charged with Aden's murder.

A reward of up to £20,000 is on offer for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the person or persons responsible.

Detective Inspector Garry Moncrieff, from the Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: "Although five years have passed, officers remain committed to bringing Aden's killers to justice.

"Allegiances may have changed over this time and those who may know who is responsible for Aden's death may not have the same sense of duty to those involved. We strongly believe that people out there may know who murdered Aden and why.

"Anyone with any detail, no matter how minor, is urged to contact police. It may provide closure to Aden's family who want to see justice done."

His mother Antonia Francis said in an earlier appeal: "All our family thinks about Aden every day. We remember his laugh and smile and he always remains in our thoughts.

"It still hurts us to think that whoever killed Aden is still out there and we pray that it doesn't happen to anyone else's family.

"I would ask anyone who may be able to help us to speak to the police. If you are not happy talking to the police then please tell someone and get them to pass the information on. What is important is that the police can track down whoever took my son from us."

The arrests for suspicion of murder were today at addresses in north London by officers acting upon fresh information regarding the killing of the 21-year-old.

Adeniyi, of Edgware, was discovered collapsed close to the junction of Rowdell Road, Ealing Road, and Kensington Road, at just before 9pm on 2 May 2011.

He had suffered stab injuries and was taken to St Mary's Hospital and died of his injuries later that night, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Incident Room at Hendon on 020 8358 0300; if you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
