A reward of £10,000 has been offered by police for information leading to the whereabouts and arrest of convicted murderer Lerone Boye who has been on the run since October 16.
Lerone Boye, 27 was sentenced in December 2012 to 28 years for the murder of 17-year-old Kelvin Chibueze in Ilford on August 15 2011, but absconded from the John Howard Centre in Kenworthy Road, Homerton last month.
Kelvin Chibueze was repeatedly stabbed with a foot-long blade in a brawl at Arteflex nightclub, off High Road.
Police have charged Dean Ablakwa, 29, from north London, a worker at the Hackney mental health unit where Boye disappeared from, with conspiracy to assist an offender escape from custody.
Boye is described as a black man, 5ft 10ins tall and of slim build. He has a distinctive horseshoe shape scar on his right cheek and a gold tooth in his upper row of teeth.
He was last seen wearing a grey/blue sweatshirt with a grey vest over the top and grey jogging bottoms.
Police believe he may be in the east London area but is also known to have links to Barking, Newham and Ilford.
The public are advised not to approach Boye but to call 999 if seen.
Anyone with any information about Boye’s whereabouts can also call police on 020 8358 0100 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
