London Sword Attack: FG Consoles Daniel Anjorin’s Family

The Federal Government has expressed condolences to the family of 14-year-old Daniel Anjorin, who tragically lost his life in a sword attack that occurred in London on Tuesday.

The Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, on Thursday, described the incident as “unfortunate, sad, and gruesome.”

Dabiri-Erewa, in a statement signed by the spokesperson of NiDCOM, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, condoled with the family of the deceased and the Nigerian communities in the UK, while “praying unto God to rest the soul of young Daniel whose life was cut short on Tuesday.”

She maintained optimism that decisive actions would be taken to ensure that the culprit, who is already in police custody, receives appropriate punishment, the statement added.

Anjorin is a student at Bancroft’s private school in Woodford Green.

The suspect, Marcus Aurelio Arduini Monzo, appeared before the court facing charges related to Anjorin’s murder.

Monzo faces multiple charges, including two counts of attempted murder, two counts of grievous bodily harm, aggravated burglary, and possession of a bladed article.

Four individuals, including two Metropolitan Police officers, were injured in the incident on Tuesday.

Monzo, aged 36, appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today and was remanded in custody this morning.

He is set to remain in custody until his appearance at the Old Bailey, scheduled for Tuesday unless a hearing is arranged for Friday.
