Two teenagers arrested over murder of NHS worker whose father had just died

Two teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of murdering an NHS worker in east London, police have said. David Gomoh, a 24-year-old marketing graduate who worked for the NHS, was stabbed to death in Newham just days before the funeral of his father, who died of a coronavirus-related illness. Police added that Mr Gomoh was attacked on Freemasons Road, Newham, at about 10.25pm on Sunday 26 April, just seconds after leaving his home. Detectives added that the evidence so far suggested Mr Gomoh was murdered in a “totally unprovoked attack” as there was nothing in his background which gave any reason for why he was singled out and assaulted. Mr Gomoh was a keyworker helping to keep NHS staff supplied with essential equipment during the coronavirus pandemic. He was apparently approached by a group of men wearing masks and stabbed multiple times in a ferocious assault.” Mr Kirk added: “David and his mother, who have done so much to help the community, now need the public to come forward and tell us what they know.” Anyone with information on the incident should contact police via 101 or via Twitter @MetCC, quoting CAD 8371/26APR, or contact the police incident room on 020 8345 3985.
