33-year-old Rebecca Ikumelo, from Newham, died in hospital on Saturday (December 17).

Newham Recorder:

A 21-year-old woman is still fighting for her life in hospital.

The Met says detectives from its Specialist Crime Command are working to establish exactly what happened.

Chief Superintendent Colin Wingrove, policing commander for Lambeth and Southwark, said: “It is devastating news that a second person has lost their life following the events on Thursday. I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to Gaby’s family at this unimaginably difficult time.”

Officers are reviewing CCTV, phone footage, speaking to witnesses and conducting forensic examinations.

An online page for the submission of photos, videos and information has been set up.

Police say there were around 4,000 potential witnesses present and are urging any members of the public with information to come forward.

The Met has referred itself to the Independent Office for Police Conduct as is standard national practice following all incidents where police have been in attendance and members of the public have died or been seriously injured.

Asake, whose real name is Ahmed Ololade, was recently nominated for BBC Radio 1’s Sound of 2023 award – for artists breaking through in the UK.

Ahead of the gig, he urged fans not to go to the venue without a valid ticket.

The concert was the third of three sold-out dates at the 4,921-standing capacity venue and concluded a run of UK dates.

Academy Music Group, which owns and runs music venues across the UK, previously said in a statement: “All at O2 Academy Brixton and Academy Music Group are deeply saddened by the news of the tragic death of Rebecca Ikumelo.

“We send our heartfelt condolences to Rebecca’s family and friends, and our thoughts are with everyone affected by this devastating news at this extremely difficult time.”
