Djodjo Nsaka, from Streatham, was stabbed to death neat Middlesex University student halls in Fulton Road, at around 1.15am.

The 19-year-old, who was a business studies student at the university, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A second man, aged 20, suffered minor injuries.

A gofundpage launched yesterday by his partner aims to raise £2,000.

It said: “Hi all, Please help raise funds for the funeral of Djodjo so he can have the best send off possible.

“He was loved and respected by everyone that knew him and touched the hearts of many people and left a real imprint in many of our lives.

“He didn’t deserve this, please help to raise money to make this transition easier and to support his family.

“He loved many and cared for many now it’s time for us to show him how much we appreciated him for that.”

Mr Nsaka is believed to be the first teenager to be murdered in the capital this year.

A spokesman for Middlesex University said: “We are fully cooperating with all relevant authorities on this matter.

“The University and Unite, who run the halls, are providing support for all staff and students affected.”

Detectives from the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command are leading the investigation and enquiries are ongoing.

A 20-year-old who was arrested on Friday morning has since been released with no further action.

Anyone with information should call police on 101, tweet @MetCC or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
