Senie Emmanuel, a former Baptista football coach, said he was "completely devastated" by the death of the promising athlete.

Senie is responsible for the development of Mindset FC where Bap played in the U15 team until last December.

He said: "I am completely devastated, everyone is still in shock. He was ready for a trial with Ipswich. He was about to do it.

That's why he left our club. He's a nice boy to work with, no problem at all. But I am a father and I know that you often only see what the children are when they are with you.

Senie must meet Josephine, the mourning mother of Bap, later in the evening.

His aunt told the Evening Standard that he phoned his mother, who lives in Canning Town, to tell him that he was going home.

She had offered to pick him up at school because the Extinction rebellion had ended the DLR, but he had decided instead to go to the Stratford Center with a friend.

Paying homage to her, she said, 'He was a cheerful boy, very popular in churches, everyone in the street knew him. He would come and put his arms around you. He would always make you laugh.

A police cordon is in place on the Brandon Estate in Camberwell in the early hours of this morning.

DCI Chris Soole said that only a person who has lost a loved one in similar tragic circumstances could quantify their loss and face months of heartache in front of them.

"The boy's family is naturally disturbed," revealed DCI Soole. Unless you have lost a loved one in these circumstances, no one can ever quantify how much grief they are currently experiencing.

"The long journey they will undertake from here to begin this process of closure, I can not imagine and I do not think anyone who has not been in the same situation can do it."

The detective repeatedly urged witnesses of this horrible double-blade attack to make themselves known and tried to allay their fears of frequent stabbing around the Stratford Mall.

He said: "We are doing everything in our power to dispel the fears that knife crime is at the center of concern outside the Stratford Center."

"I am completely devastated to learn that two teenagers were killed in our streets: a 15-year-old boy in Stratford and an 18-year-old man in Southwark. My thoughts are with the loved ones of the two victims in this incredibly difficult time.

"Knife crimes rob the future of our youth – and they devastate our communities. It must stop.

"That's why, despite the government's massive budget cuts, we are funding specialized agents to fight violence, while focusing on the causes of crime, investing in youth and services. of prevention.

"I urge anyone who has information about these incidents to call the police at 101 or to contact Crimestoppers anonymously at 0800 555111. There is no honor in keeping quiet."

"I could clearly see him bleeding from the heart. He had been stabbed in the chest. I am 100% sure.

"I and other guests tried to go to the boy, but the door was locked. We all wanted to open the door but we could not. So I found myself on the other side of the glass.

"He did not say anything. I thought that only God could save him. I started thinking about the boy's mother.

"The security guards at the mall came with two ladies passing by.

"They were leaning on his chest, saying," please, speak to us "and" open your eyes ".

The woman found a gray sweater covered in blood when she came out this morning.

She said, "I left my house this morning and saw a gray sweater with blood on it during the garbage dump.

"He was just lying on the floor. I do not know at all how it happened, you need a keychain to enter our building.

"I told the police officer and he came up with a brown bag and said it was blood.

The woman said there have been several stab wounds in the area, which have a history of gang-related violence.

She added, "For me, this is just the beginning: you stab a gang and they come back to stab you. It's gang rivalry, that's what it is.

Others said he had been warned not to approach the area and people had heard screams saying "you should not come here" after his move and he will not come back.

A friend, who did not want to be named, rushed to the boy's rescue and said, "Wake up! Wake up!' as he tried to keep his eyes open and saw that he had been stabbed.

'His eyes were open but he was not blinking. I was trying to keep the flash there. I kept saying, "wake up, wake up." I was just trying to help him. He was stabbed in the stomach.

"I had just come from the cooperative and my neighbor told me he had seen someone with a big knife. She said 'hurry up and go into the house.'

I was just confused. I looked around and saw the commotion and went to see what was happening – that's when I saw it.

"It was three or four minutes later, it was so cool. There were neighbors who were trying to squeeze the wound and do the CPR.

"He was a good boy. He was in his own way to do his own thing. He was very independent. Nobody wants to be at the end of the sword.

The young victim's friends huddled under the police cordon in the rain.
