A ‘dangerous’ murderer with links to Ilford is still on the run after escaping from a secure mental health unit in October.
Redbridge Police say they urgently need to find Lerone Boye, who is also known as Junior Mohammed Balogun, with Detective Superintendent Ellie O’Connor describing him as a “dangerous man who needs to be found and arrested as quickly as possible.”
Twenty-seven-year old Boye was jailed for 28 years for murdering 17-year-old Kelvin Chibueze on August 15 in 2011.
He attacked the teenager at the Arteflex Club in Ilford High Road, Ilford with glass and broken bottles.
He was jailed for life last December but escaped from the John Howard Centre in Homerton, east London, on October 16.
