Two men arrested in connection with the fatal stabbing of Mohamed Kakay outside a church in Camberwell have been re-bailed, whilst detectives continue their investigation.
Two males from south-east London – aged 20 and sixteen – were arrested on July 11, on suspicion of murder.
They were due to attend a south London police station on a date in mid-August. But a Met Police spokesman said the bail term has been extended until “a date to be confirmed”.
A total of seven people have been arrested as part of the investigation, called when Mr Kakay was found wounded outside St Giles’ Church, in Camberwell Church Street, on November 19 last year.
A 20-year-old man, arrested on suspicion of murder in December 2016, is also due to return from bail in August. Three other men were released and ruled out of the case.
On police were called to the scene by the London Ambulance Service at 9:15am. Officers found Mr Kakay, 33, from Bromley, suffering from stab injuries. He died in hospital later that afternoon.
It is believed that Mr Kakay had entered the grounds at the back of St Giles’ Church at around 9am. He was stabbed in his abdomen but managed to stagger along the path at the side of the church to the front and out onto Camberwell Church Street, collapsing near Wilson Road.
