The Metropolitan Police is appealing for the public’s help in tracing a 25-year-old Nigerian man, Oluwamayowa Akinola in relation to an alleged serious assault in London.
Akinola is wanted for grievous bodily harm after he failed to appear at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court in relation to the serious assault which took place in June 2019 at Brunel University, in Hillingdon.
Akinola is listed among 11 other high harm offenders who are wanted for a range of offences such as robbery and grievous bodily harm (GBH)
The suspects are classed as ‘high harm’ as they are either wanted in connection with violent offences or they are known to have a violent background.
Superintendent Claire Smart, of the Violent Crime Taskforce, said: “With Christmas less than few days away we are increasing our efforts to arrest these individuals and apprehend them for their crimes. Since July, we have arrested more than 850 high harm offenders and that number is steadily increasing.
“Our message is clear – we will not stop looking for you until you are arrested. Do the right thing and hand yourself in at your nearest police station to prevent Christmas being ruined for your family and friends. You won’t be able to evade justice forever.
“We are always carrying out arrest enquiries and bringing offenders to justice so that we can keep everyone safe, but we also need the help of the public. If you know where any of these offenders could be, or happen to see them while you are out and about then I urge you to pass any information to us as soon as possible,”
“These offenders have caused harm and destruction and it is our priority to arrest them to prevent them from causing further damage.”
