A man has been convicted over the “senseless” stabbing of a Dutch man in Camden Lock in 2016.
Zekeria Jama Quabdid has been found guilty of manslaughter over the death of Romeo Nkansah, 37,
The Holloway man died after being stabbed in Greenland Road after a night out in Camden on May 29 2016.
Det Insp John Marriott, said: “This was a senseless attack on a man who had been enjoying a night out with friends. Our thoughts remain with Romeo’s family.”
After the attack Quabdid, 29, fled the country by boarding a Eurostar train from St Pancras and then flying to Kenya. However, in February this year he resurfaced in Norway, and the Met Police were able to have him extradited to the UK.
