Three more charges in connection with the murder of a man in West Kensington

Three more people have been charged in connection with the murder of a man in west London.

Janayo Lucima, 21, was found with a gunshot wound by emergency services on Comeragh Road, West Kensington, at around 10.15pm on April 1.

He was treated by paramedics but pronounced dead 40 minutes later.

On Tuesday, police confirmed that a 16-year-old man had been charged with murder after being extradited from Spain.

Issa Siteri, 18, from west London, voluntarily returned to the UK from Morocco last Saturday and has been charged with murder.

Yusuf Muhudin Abdi, 18, from west London, also voluntarily returned to the UK from Morocco on Saturday and has been charged with murder.

On Tuesday, all three suspects appeared in custody before the Central Criminal Court, where they were remanded in custody to appear before the same court on June 26.

Five other people have been charged in connection with the murder, including 21-year-old Khuedr Al-Jurdi, 22-year-old Muktar Said and three other teenage men whose names cannot be revealed because they are under 18.

All five will appear before the Central Criminal Court for trial in February 2025.
