Ten people charged over Coventry city centre disorder which led to the fatal stabbing of Fidel Glasgow

TEN PEOPLE have been charged over violent disorder which broke out in Coventry city centre in September 2018 and resulted in the death of Fidel Glasgow.

Fidel was stabbed during the trouble near to Club M on Croft Road in the early hours of September 1, 2018, and died in hospital just hours later.

A 23-year-old man was also stabbed in the disorder and taken to hospital with serious injuries, from which he later recovered.

In spite of an intensive investigation, several arrests and appeals for information, no-one has been brought to justice for Fidel’s murder but the police have continued their tenacious investigation in the search for his killer.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has now authorised charges against ten men for wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm to the 23-year-old, violent disorder and possession of offensive weapons.

The following will appear at Coventry Magistrates Court on April 28.

Brendon Gama, aged 23 of The Coppice, Stoke – wounding with intent, two counts of violent disorder and possession of an offensive weapon.

Jiguael Botamba, aged 21 of Little Duke Street, Nuneaton – wounding with intent, two counts of violent disorder and possession of an offensive weapon.

Pa Gaye, aged 23 of Harnalls Lane East, Stoke – wounding with intent, two counts of violent disorder and possession of an offensive weapon.

Mohammed Amadu, aged 20 of Walsgrave Road, Ball Hill – wounding with intent, violent disorder and possession of an offensive weapon.

Michael Mistouflet, aged 24 of James Galloway Close – wounding with intent, two counts of violent disorder and possession of an offensive weapon.

Andrea Boadi, aged 21 of Lansdowne Street, Ball Hill – wounding with intent and two counts of violent disorder.

Adil Naseer, aged 24 of Park Street, Foleshill – wounding with intent, two counts of violent disorder and possession of an offensive weapon

Harrison Asiedu, aged 27 of North Street, Stoke – wounding with intent and violent disorder.

Brian Kamau, aged 33 of Chandos Street, – violent disorder.

Meidel Dange, aged 24 of Hornsey Close, Wood End – wounding with intent and violent disorder.

Det Insp Michelle Allen, from West Midlands Police’s homicide unit, said: “We are still actively investigating Fidel’s murder and these charges are a significant step forward in our search for his killer.

“Fidel’s family have been fully updated with these latest developments and we remain in close contact with them.

“We continue to ask anyone with information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, to come forward.”

Fidel’s mother, Melanie Staple said: “Fidel is missed dearly by his family and close friends. All our lives will never be the same.

“I miss his voice round my house and his infectious personality, for what?

“Whoever stabbed my son – it may have been an accident, but covering it up is intentional.”
