Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London joined condemnation of an incident on May 1, which led to the death of a 30-year-old Ghanaian, Johanita Kossiwa Dogbey.

The incident which took place in Brixton was widely reported by the media. 

Johanita was returning home from a shop where she had gone to get a gift when her attacker, one Mohammed Nur attacked her. 

She was pronounced dead by first responders who had been called to the scene. 

“This was an utterly appalling attack – and my thoughts and prayers are with Johanita Kossiwa Dogbey’s family, friends and the wider community in Brixton. 

“The Met Commissioner & I remain in regular contact. A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder & extra police remain in the area to progress this investigation & respond to concerns,” the Mayor posted in a tweet dated May 4.

The attacker was arraigned before a Magistrate Court last week but only his details were taken and is due to be transferred to a higher court next week because of the indictable nature of his offence.
