Years after gang violence in the city of London subsided, teenagers in England’s capital city have begun a new wave of stabbings that some on the front-line of the killings claim is motivated by a new game and ranking system called ‘Scores’.
According to Daily Mail, Scotland Yard has launched 55 investigations into suspected murders in London this year already.
At least 35 of those killed were stabbed to death.
On Thursday, April 5, 2018, the city saw six stabbings within the space of 90 minutes. One of them left a 13-year-old left fighting for his life after an attack in Newham, east London.
The rising wave of stabbings has all of England and most of the world worried, partly because all of this has happened before.
The Nigerian side to this story is not lost on us.
