£20,000 reward and CCTV released over minicab death

Detectives investigating the death of a minicab driver found dying in a south London street last June are offering a £20,000 reward for information.

Officers have also released CCTV footage of an unknown person who was seen in the area around the time of the death of Michael Okonko-Nwoso, 49.

Mr Okonko-Nwoso, from Plumstead, was found collapsed behind his minicab in Cookhill Road, Abbey Wood, on 19 June.

He was taken to hospital suffering from head injuries and died later that day.

'Vital information'

The doors of his silver Ford Galaxy were open but valuable items such as the Sat-Nav were still in the car.

Det Ch Insp Dave Manning said: "I am now particularly keen to speak to a man captured on CCTV running along the parade of shops between 0442 BST and 0444 BST in Eynsham Drive Abbey Wood, around the time Michael was injured as they may have vital information."

Police said they are also keen to speak to anyone who was in Sewell Road or Cookhill Road anytime between 0400 BST and 0500 BST.

Mr Okonko-Nwoso was married with two young children and was a licensed cab driver for a south-east London firm.
