A hefty reward has been offered to track down two men wanted over a fatal stabbing in Ilford after a third man was jailed for the killing.

Jermaine Ahenkorah, 30, of Cumberland Road in Plaistow, was sentenced to eight years’ imprisonment at the Old Bailey yesterday (November 22) in connection with Ricardo Fuller's death after he was stabbed outside an Ilford nightclub in 2020.

He was found guilty of manslaughter at an earlier hearing.

The Met Police say Ahmed Sesay and Abubaker Tarawally fled the country following the incident.

They were among five charged with murder in April 2020.

Police said they are believed to be in West Africa and have now offered £20,000 for information on their location so they can be extradited back to the country.

Emanuel Tamwesegire, 31, of Wyemead Crescent in Chingford, and 32-year-old Edmund Tucker, of Vincent Road in Dagenham, were sentenced to life imprisonment at the Old Bailey for murder earlier this month. They were given a minimum term of 25 years.

The fatal stabbing of 24-year-old Ricardo took place on March 7, 2020, near the former Discoteca No Problem club in High Road, Ilford.

Police said CCTV footage of the incident showed five men, including Ahenkorah, pursuing Ricardo and stabbing him three times.

Ricardo sustained two stab wounds to his back, but a third wound to his neck severed the artery.

The court had heard that there was a “longstanding animosity” between Ricardo and at least one of the group of men who attacked him.

Emergency services were called but he died later that morning.

Officers spoke to witnesses and reviewed hours of CCTV to identify the attackers.

By the time the men were identified, police said they had left the country but three were tracked down.

Det Ch Insp Kelly Allen said: “While three men have now been convicted and sentenced, there is still work to be done as two others remain at large having fled abroad.

“We know that these men will still be in contact with family and friends in the UK. There are people in the very community where Ricardo was killed who will know where those responsible are hiding.

“They cannot hide forever, and I would urge anyone with information, however insignificant they think it may be, to get in touch with us.”

Officers have urged people with information on Sesay and Tarawally to call the incident room on 20 8345 1570, quoting Operation Sandside.
