Armley: Police renew appeal over 18-year-old’s murder

Victim: Jamie Meah.

Detectives have renewed their appeal for information to help trace four men wanted over the murder of an 18-year-old man in Armley. 

Jamie Meah died in hospital after being stabbed and fatally wounded in an incident in Hall Lane, Armley, on March 31 this year. A 16-year-old boy was also stabbed and seriously injured in the attack.

Detectives from West Yorkshire Police Homicide and Major Enquiry Team launched a murder investigation and identified four suspects. 

Aquade Jeffers, Caleb Awe, Enham Nishat, all aged 20, and Ranei Wilks, aged 22, all from Leeds, are believed to have left the UK shortly after the murder, before they were identified as suspects.

Enquiries showed they had initially travelled to Liverpool before leaving the country and were shown on CCTV.

Detectives are continuing to carry out extensive enquiries to locate them and are liaising with the Crown Prosecution Service.  

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Damian Roebuck said: “Jamie’s family remain completely heartbroken at his death in such sudden and violent circumstances, and we are determined to get them the answers they need and to see that those responsible are brought to justice. 

“Information from the public is vital to those efforts and we continue to appeal for anyone who knows anything that could assist the investigation, particularly anyone who may have knowledge of their current whereabouts abroad, to contact us.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact HMET via 101 quoting Operation Plunket, reference 13230180255, or online. Information can also be given online via the Major Incident Public Portal and can be given anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
