THE FAMILY of a man, aged 21, fatally stabbed in Coventry has released a heartbreaking tribute to a ‘loving father and son’.

Emmanuel Lukenga was discovered with a serious leg injury in Franklin Grove, Tile Hill, at just after 2.30pm on Wednesday (June 13).

The Coventry man was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

A tribute from his family said: “Emmanuel was a loving son, loving brother, loving father and a caring friend who always looked out for everyone.

“He helped all of his friends, he wasn’t perfect but he did enough to make sure everyone is alright.

“He always put others before himself and that is why he will truly be missed.

“Him and his sister had an unbreakable bond and were each other’s best friend.

“He truly loved his family and always put a smile on everyone’s faces.”

Detectives arrested a 41-year-old man on suspicion of murder yesterday afternoon and he has been bailed pending further enquiries.

Enquiries continue and anyone with information is asked to contact West Midlands Police via Live Chat at west-midlands.police.uk, call 101 any time, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
