A 16-year-old boy has been charged with the murder of 15-year-old Nigerian rapper, Jordan Gbolade Jaiyeola.
The youngster is accused of killing the 15-year-old, popularly known as Jordan Doherty, who died when he was beaten and stabbed by more than five attackers near a community centre in Romford in London on Saturday, reports Mirror UK.
The 15-year-old, who performed drill music under the name Young Valenti, was attacked three times in a matter of seconds amid violent scenes after 200 teenagers had gone to the party and some had been asked to leave because the venue was filled to capacity.
The 16-year-old – who was arrested at an address in Newham on suspicion of murder – will appear at the Old Bailey on Friday.
A post-mortem examination found that Jordan, from Grays, Essex, died from hypovolemic shock caused by a stab wound to the left ventricle of the heart.
Metropolitan Police Chief Inspector Larry Smith said: “We believe that this birthday party was advertised on social media, resulting in a large number of people attending.
“A number of people were escorted out of the community centre and this led to a fight breaking out, and, tragically, Jordan receiving fatal injuries.
