Four teenagers have appeared in court charged with the murder of a 16-year-old schoolboy who was stabbed to death in London.
Kodjo died from a single stab wound to the heart
Kodjo Yenga, of Portland Road, west London died from a single stab wound to the heart in Hammersmith on Wednesday.
The four youths, two aged 13, one aged 15 and a 16-year-old, were all remanded in custody to appear before a youth court on Wednesday.
Five other youths have been given bail by police in connection with the death.
The teenagers did not enter pleas when they appeared before Judge Susan Williams at West London Youth Court.
In a statement released through the police, Kodjo's mother, Ladjua Lesele, said: "I miss Kodjo and I will miss him forever.
"My life with my boy was fantastic. We loved each other. We were really inseparable. I will miss him all my life."
His mother later joined some 30 other members of his family on a visit to the scene of the death.
Police sealed off the road to allow the family to mourn privately at the site.
Kodjo's uncle Lubi, who made a statement to reporters at the scene, said: "His loss is a big tragedy to our entire family. Right now, we are inconsolable and we can only turn to God for our comfort."
