Hunt for wanted men with links to Manchester after teen stabbed to death

Four men with links to Greater Manchester are being hunted down by police after a teenager was fatally stabbed.

A murder probe was launched after Jamie Meah was stabbed in an attack in Armley in Leeds on Friday, March 31. The 18-year-old tragically died in hospital as a result of his injuries.

Detectives at West Yorkshire Police are now hunting for four men as part of the investigation. All four suspects are wanted on suspicion of murder.

Aquade Jeffers, Caleb Awe, Enham Nishat - all aged 20 - and 21-year-old Ranei Wilks are all from Leeds. They also have links to areas in Greater Manchester and Merseyside, with 'enquiries being actively carried out' in the regions.

The four men should not be approached, police said. Anyone who spots them is urged to call 999 immediately.

Senior Investigating Officer, Det Chief Insp Damian Roebuck, said: "Jamie’s death was a tragedy in which a young man with his life ahead of him was needlessly cut short. We would like to speak to these four males who are wanted for his murder.

"These men are believed to have links to the Leeds, Liverpool and Greater Manchester areas and enquiries are actively being carried out in those areas. I would urge anyone who thinks they may have seen any of these four males, or knows of their whereabouts to please contact us with those details."

Sightings should be reported by calling police on 999, and quoting West Yorkshire Police crime reference 13230180255. Information can also be given online to the force via a Major Incident Public Portal at Public Portal (mipp.police.uk)

Alternatively, call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
