STABBED: Sunny Eze.

TWO 999 callers told police I saw blood and someone was stabbed on the night of a brutal murder. Police have released the emergency phone calls

TWO 999 callers told police "I saw blood" and "someone was stabbed" on the night of a brutal murder.

Police have released the emergency phone calls made on the night Sunny Eze, 33, was stabbed to death in a ground-floor flat in Woolwich to appeal for the witnesses to come forward.

Mr Eze was stabbed to death last Wednesday (March 4) at a flat in Vyvyan House in Campbell Close at approximately 7pm.

Police have not made any arrests and are urging two male callers who alerted the emergency services on the night to contact them.

The first call was made by a man from a phone box at the junction of Woolwich Common and Nightingale Place at 7.51pm.

He told the operator about a fight on 'Morden Road', which doesn't exist, and hung up saying he was going to check the spelling but never did.

At 10.17pm another man called from a public phone outside the Arsenal café in Plumstead Road, where a woman is believed to have been with him.

Detective Chief Inspector Damian Allain, who is leading investigation, said: "These two callers were clearly uncomfortable with what had happened to Sunny and despite being scared were keen to ensure he received medical attention.

"I would appeal to them directly to come forward and ease their conscience. They are likely to have vital information that could help convict those responsible.

"We would also like to hear from anyone who recognises the voices or who saw were in the areas the calls were made from at the time."

Police are clueless as to whether Mr Eze lived in the flat or was visiting.

He was identified him from fingerprint records taken when he applied for a visa in Lagos last year.

Two black men seen in the area on the night of the murder are wanted for questioning.

The first is black, approximately 6ft, of medium build and in his early 20s. He had short afro hair and wore jeans and a dark jacket.

The second man was also black, approximately 6ft, of medium build, wearing a light grey coat and a grey woollen 'beanie' hat pulled down.

Anyone with information should call 020 8721 4805 or to remain anonymous Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
