Ahmed’s uncle described him as “humble” and “kind”
His uncle James Beker, who lost his 17-year-old son Josiph Beker, to a stabbing on the same street in September 2019, said the family is “devastated”.
Ahmed’s cousin Josiph, an economics student at City of Westminster College, was stabbed to death in a “sudden and brutal” attack outside a KFC on Edgware Road, less than 100 meters from Friday night’s tragedy.
James, 52, Ahmed’s father’s brother, told My London: “I’m so shocked and devastated. It hurts. It reminds me of what happened. It’s the same thing again.
“My brother is devastated. I’m afraid for him. He can’t understand it. He doesn’t understand what happened. He won’t believe it.”
He added: “We’re not at war. How can they do that? How can they carry a knife to kill people? It’s incredible.”
‘SHOCKED AND DEVASTATED’
James described his nephew Ahmed as “humble”, “kind” and “quiet”.
He said he was called by a relative after the attack and rushed to the scene, where he found ambulances and police officers.
The victim’s uncle said he saw paramedics trying to rescue Ahmed, but then they covered up his body and he was pronounced dead.
James said he still has pictures of his son on his phone, but looking at them really hurts him – and he believes Ahmed’s death will have the same effect on his father.
He added: “We will never be healed from it.”

“They found a 19-year-old male who had been stabbed.
“Despite the best efforts of the emergency services, he was pronounced dead on the spot at 10pm. His closest relatives were informed.”
Two people were arrested while the police were conducting an investigation.
A spokesman for Essex police said: “A 31-year-old man from Westcliff and a 19-year-old man from Rayleigh were arrested on suspicion of causing serious personal injury.
“They remain in custody for questioning.”
Police said officers would be in the area over the weekend and urged people to talk to them if they saw what happened or recorded footage.
