Norfolk Constabulary has confirmed a 17-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of murder, following the death of Mr Lawal on Brandon Road earlier this month.

The teenager was arrested by officers from the Metropolian Police in London on Thursday afternoon, October 24, and is due to be brought to Norfolk for questioning.

His arrest sees the total number of people questioned in relation to Mr Lawal's death reach 12, after an 11th person was arrested over the weekend.

Mr Lawal, 25, was fatally stabbed in the neck and chest area in an incident on Brandon Road, Thetford, on Thursday, October 3.

Police are still keen to hear from anybody with information concerning the incident, who can contact the Norfolk and Suffolk major investigations team on 101, quoting Operation Petersfield.
