UK Sierra Leonean Man Stabbed To Death In Row Over A Jacket

Father-of-one Kabba Kamara, 23, was slashed across the stomach with a broken bottle


MURDERED: Kabba Kamara

A MURDER investigation has been launched after a young father was stabbed to death after a “trivial” row over a jacket at a City restaurant.

Devestated family and friends have paid tribute to Kabba Kamara, 23, who was slashed across the stomach with a broken bottle after leaving Caravaggio in the Square Mile at 3am on Sunday (Dec 6).

He was taken to the Royal London Hospital but died there 24 hours later, theEvening Standard reported.

Kesha Skky, the mother of his toddler son, posted on Facebook: “Rest in peace Kabba. I will love you always. I will never let our son forget the amazing father you grew to be.”

Kamara had been at an R&B night held monthly in the Italian restaurant near the Leadenhall Building with his older brother and a small group of friends. Witnesses said he was followed outside and attacked in the street 300 yards away following an argument in the cloakroom.

Friend Richmond Kissi, 24, said: “It’s tragic this has happened, a huge shock. I heard it all just started over a jacket.

“He was with friends and one of them picked up the wrong jacket and it went from there. It wasn’t his fight, he would have been the peacemaker trying to break it all up.”

A witness, who asked not to be named, said it was “a trivial row” in the cloakroom as two men bumped into one another and “words were exchanged”.

He said Kamara was not involved. It is understood he tried to calm the situation but was attacked outside as he left with two girls.

The witness added: “He tried to walk back towards the venue where his friends were and collapsed about 150 yards away. They slashed a bottle across his stomach.

“He was at the party with his older brother. He would never usually go out. He wasn’t that type of person.”

A relative at the family home in Deptford have called for Kamara’s killers to be brought to justice and said: “We are devastated and haven’t really begun to process it.”

Friends also paid tribute to Sierra Leone-born Kamara, who was an Arsenal fan and a talented footballer who played for Lewisham and Southwark College when he studied for his A-levels.

One, Dankole Koroma, said: “He always put a smile on everyone’s face… he loved making people laugh. We are just in shock, because he was such a nice guy.”

City of London Police have launched a murder investigation after arresting four men aged 24 to 28 near the scene. They have now been bailed.
