Three teenagers were on Monday in London charged with the murder of Temidayo Ogunneye 15, a Nigerian school boy in the UK.
Kieron Carew-Donaldson, 18 of Brixton, Darius Kwakye, 18 of Camberwell and a 17- year old girl who has not been named, also faced a two-count charge of robbery.
A statement from the London Metropolitan police quotes Chief Inspector John Mcfarlene, who is leading the investigation as saying that Ogunneye was the fifth teenager to be stabbed to death this year in the city.
He said the deceased was earlier attacked and robbed of his Blackberry mobile phone.
â€œIt is believed that Ogunneye returned to the area to confront the robbers and tried to recover the phone. He was stabbed in confrontation with the large group of youths on Wednesday,â€ Mcfarlene said.
He said more arrests were expected to be made in connection with the case and appealed to witnesses to come forward and testify.
