FOUR men accused of stabbing a 15-year-old boy to death denied murder at the Old Bailey on Monday.

Sunday Essiet died after being found with fatal knife wounds in Invermore Place, Woolwich.

At the time he was the fifth teenager to be killed in London this year.

Miles Maddy, 18, with Sikuru Doherty, Adeniyi Oloyede and Ifedotun Gbadeo-Araoye, all 19, spoke only to confirm their names and deny murdering Sunday on February 19 this year.

Gbadeo-Aroaye of The Heights, Charlton alone also denied a count of robbery, namely that he robbed Ibrahim Ajidagba of a gold chain on the same date. Judge Stephen Kramer, QC, ordered the four men to stand trial on February 9 next year.

The trial is estimated to last six weeks.

Maddy and Oloyede, both of Corraline Walk, off Lensbury Way, Thamesmead; Doherty, of Swetenham Walk, Woolwich and Gbadeb-Aroaye were all remanded in custody.
