Police said they were called at around 5.30pm to reports of a car colliding with a bus near the south London Tube stop, where officers found the victim with stab wounds inside the vehicle.

Scotland Yard said it believed Femi, full name Babafemi, was stabbed in Clapham Road, some 50 yards from the scene of the collision, before getting into his car and colliding with the bus. Police do not believe anyone else was in the car with Femi at the time of the collision.

Scotland Yard said the incident may be linked to an earlier report of disorder on a bus nearby.

The force is now investigating murder and no arrests have been made.

Last night, Jordan Grace (@JordanGrace123) tweeted: “Something BIG going down in Stockwell... Blood in the road and police vans everywhere.”

Another, Claire Buky-Webster (@ClaireB_W), wrote: “Something BAD has happened in Stockwell. Car under a bus and knives on the road.”

• Anyone with information about the incident should call Scotland Yard’s incident room on 020 8721 4155 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
