Two arrested on suspicion of murder in 2011 Northolt stabbing

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of murder over the 2011 stabbing of a 21-year-old man in north-west London.

Adeniyi Lateef Shode, of Edgware, was stabbed to death shortly before 21:00 BST in Northolt on 2 May, 2011.

Police said they arrested the men, aged 23 and 24, and from north London, on Wednesday after "fresh information".

No-one has ever been charged over the 2011 killing. A £20,000 reward is still on offer for information leading to conviction of those responsible.

Mr Shode, who was also known as Aden, died that night in St Mary's Hospital.

Det Insp Garry Moncrieff, of the Met Police, said: "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."
