Gambian teenager Sait Mboob, 18, was stabbed to death after a mass fight broke out in Moss Side an inner-city area of Manchester, England on Tuesday evening
Sait was fatally injured during the ‘mass fight’ at around Crosshill Road on Tuesday night. Sait, who used to go to Loreto High School in Chorlton, suffered stab wounds and was rushed to hospital but died shortly afterwards. A murder investigation has been immediately launched following the brawl.
One of his relatives wrote on Facebook: “Today is a day that our entire family will never forget but we give everything back to God. If God needs him we have no choice but to have faith and give all back to him. Rip Sait, we all love you and I know that you are in a better place. RIP.” An aunt of the late Sait, Aminata Correa, also took to Facebook to express her shock at the teenager’s brutal death : “I am devastated by the news of your loss. My nephew Sait Mboob’s life has been cut short. I don’t want to believe it. May Allah give your mum, grandma and the entire family the strength to bear this loss. Rest in peace my boy.” While Assan Jarju commented: “Rest In Peace my boy my friend sait Mboob”. Tributes keep on flooding on the social media.
Sait Mboob had hopes of playing for Man City – and was comforted by a professional footballer pal before he died.
If there was dispute that led to Sait’s death, police are looking to establish whether it was personal, whether it involved people he was with, or whether, as many believe, he fell victim to a conflict he had no part in.
