Tributes have been paid to a 21-year-old male who died after being stabbed in south-east London. Rukevwe Tadafe was found with knife wounds on Molesworth Street in Lewisham on the evening of 30 April. Tadefe, known as Ruke or Peanut to his friends, was taken to a south London hospital but died of his injuries six days later.

While no formal identification has been made by police, the 21-year-old was reportedly known in the local community for his work at the Adventure Playground youth club in Deptford.

Kenny Allstar, 22, told the Evening Standard: "He was a happy guy with a heart of gold. I'd visit to do a bit of DJing and he'd always be the one to come up and ask how I was doing. He was a happy guy, enjoying his life and he loved his friends. His friends and family were number one to him.

Several people have also paid tribute to Tadafe on social media following his death.

A murder investigation has since been launched but no arrests have been made. Police are asking any witnesses or anyone with any information to contact the incident room on 020 8345 3775 or to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
