Two men have been arrested in connection with the fatal stabbing of Shaun Akanbi in Kilburn.

The suspects, aged 19 and 20, were detained in Harrow and Camberwell respectively yesterday afternoon. They remain in custody at south London and north west London police stations.

Fashion designer Mr Akanbi, the founder of the Billy Boyce clothing line, was found with multiple injuries at a property in Cedar Lodge, Exeter Road on December 22.

A post-mortem examination gave his cause of death as multiple stab wounds to the torso. Any witnesses or anyone with any information should contact 020 8721 4868 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A 21-year-old man arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods has been bailed to return in January.
