Review

Twenty-two-year-old youth worker Kobi Nelson is ferociously attacked, stabbed 14 times after his car is deliberately rammed in a north-London street. We hear his dying words to a 999 dispatcher: “I got stabbed… I’m dead… I’m dead.” Then his brother shouts his sibling’s name over and over before a final, dreadful, “Kobi… no.”

In a desperately sobering, harrowing episode of this excellent series we are pitched into the heart of police attempts, led by Commissioner Cressida Dick, to stem the unprecedented tide of murderous violence, much of it gang-related, that blighted London’s streets last year.

The Murder Investigation Team, led by DCI Luke Marks (pictured) is also called on to investigate a fatal shooting carried out in retaliation for Kobi Nelson’s murder. There’s chilling CCTV footage of a gun-wielding passenger on a moped before he shoots 19-year-old Kelvin Odunuyi. “Why would someone shoot my son in the head?” asks his angry, shattered mother.

Summary

In 2018 the highest number of under 25s were killed in London in more a decade. This documentary follows the investigation into two of these murders in the borough of Haringey. DCI Luke Marks picks up the case of 22-year-old youth worker Kobi Nelson, who was stabbed near his home and died at the scene. Less than five weeks later, 19-year-old Kelvin Odunuyi is shot dead in Wood Green. Kelvin was a good student although his mother believes he was being groomed by local gangs. Was he killed in direct retaliation for Kobi's murder? It's up to Luke Marks and his team to find out.
