Police issue new appeal for man wanted over So Solid Crew gig murder 13 years ago

Marcus Hall, 18, was stabbed outside one of the garage collective's shows in 2001 in Luton

Police have issued a new appeal to find a man wanted in connection with a murder which happened outside a So Solid Crew gig 13 years ago.

Five men were jailed for life over the killing of 18-year-old Marcus Hall in Luton on March 21, 2001, but Bedfordshire Police still want to question Adebayo Ekun, now 37, reports BBC News.

Hall was attacked near Luton’s Atmosphere nightclub after travelling to the show with a gang known as The Peckham Boys. However, they arrived too late to enter the venue. As the punters left the venue later, violence broke out and Hall – who courts heard in 2002 had a baseball bat on him – was stabbed nine times in the back and his skull fractured and later died. Seven men were jailed for life, but two convictions were later quashed.

£5,000 has been offered for infomation leading to finding Ekun, who has also used the names James Dalvin, Arron Hall, Lavell Holder, Gary Edwin Plumber, Adebayo Kekere, Mulatib Kekere Ekun and David Bell in the past. Det Insp Tim Redfearn said: “The £5,000 is payable on his arrest, we do not have to wait for him to be convicted to pay this reward. We have the full support of the Crown Prosecution Service and can proceed to court the moment he is in custody.”
