Yaya Mbye Sankareh

Yaya Mbye Sankareh was stabbed to death on the George Downing Estate in Stoke Newington at approximately 23:30hrs on 28 January 2018.

Enquiries since his death suggest Yaya was stabbed several times after being chased by a group of three or four young men dressed in dark clothing.

The suspects are believed to have left the scene in a silver Mercedes estate car which was later found to have been destroyed.

A post-mortem examination held at Poplar Public Mortuary on 30 January 2018 gave Yaya’s cause of death as a stab wound to the stomach.

Despite an extensive investigation by the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, the case remains unsolved and those responsible for Yaya’s death are yet to be brought to justice.
