“I am urging anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious to please come forward and speak with us,” said Neil John, a detective inspector with the metropolitan police.

“We are working hard to build a timeframe to establish what has happened. Were you woken up by a disturbance, or did you see anyone running from the area? I would ask that you check any private CCTV or dash cam footage to see whether you captured anything that might assist us.

“Another family has been left grieving and we are doing everything we can to find answers to their questions and locate whoever is responsible for this murder.”

Following the British-Nigerian’s murder, Tottenham’s Premier League fixture against Nottingham Forest went ahead as planned.

In a post on its official X handle, the football club later extended its condolences to Iweha’s family members.
