Police believe four or five male suspects were involved in the attack, who, along with Mr Azeez, were seen to run into Samos Road from Grace Mews.

After the attack took place, the suspects fled in one direction and Mr Azeez went in the other before collapsing.

A post-mortem examination is scheduled to take place later.
