Harry Uzoka, a 25-year-old male Nigerian fashion model residing in the Uk has been killed near his house in a botched robbery.
Uzoka, a Premier Model Management model, died from a stab wound.
Residents at Old Oak Road, East Acton, reported a shout of ‘hand it over’ in the scuffle with some unknown men.
Uzoka managed to limp into the nearby street next to a housing estate before collapsing.
The area around Ollgar House in Ollgar Close has been sealed off by police on Friday.

We believe that the incident started at Ollgar House, in Ollgar Close and the victim was assaulted and stabbed before staggering and collapsing in Old Oak Road.
“We believe there were a number of people involved, but we are still working to establish the circumstances and a possible motive.
“We have made two arrests and continue to pursue a number of lines of inquiry. We need the public’s help to piece together what happened — who the victim was seen with, the incident itself and the immediate aftermath.”
