I warned him - Mom of Nigerian teenager shot dead in U.K

The mother of a privately-educated Nigerian teenager shot dead outside a cinema, has revealed how she warned him against going out.
According to EveningStandard, Kelvin Odunuyi, 19, was gunned down as he stood with friends at the entrance of the Vue cinema in Wood Green, at just after 12.30am on Thursday.

Witnesses described seeing two masked men on a moped ride past before one opened fire. Mr Odunuyi, a rapper who performed under the name DipDat and was also known as Lampz, was pronounced dead in hospital two hours later.

The killing, the first fatal shooting of a teenager in London in 2018, is thought to be part of an escalating “postcode war” between gangs in Wood Green and nearby Tottenham.

It was claimed that Mr Odunuyi was not a gang member, but socialised with people who were. His mother, Afishetu Oniru, said he was in the “wrong place at the wrong time”.

She said: “He was a lovely jovial boy. He was clever and loved by all who knew him...he had everything going for him.”

Oniru said relatives, including his father who runs a property business in Nigeria, had paid her son’s fees at the prestigious £26,000-a-year Fulneck School in Pudsey, West Yorkshire, and that he had ambitions to work in the oil industry.

She said: “I have always lived in London but when we moved to Wood Green for a short time I got scared for my family. We now live in Harrow and I told him not to go back to Wood Green to see friends.

But he did and now he is dead after being shot dead in a random attack. Police said it was wrong place at wrong time. I am devastated. I knew he would be safe at home with me but he went there and now he is dead.” There have been no arrests.
