At around 1.25pm on Sunday 21 February police were called to a house in Cheetham Hill, by paramedics, following reports that a man had been stabbed.

Officers attended and found that a 58-year-old man had been fatally injured. He sadly died at the address a short time later. 20-year-old Adebanjo Adegboye was arrested at the scene on suspicion of murder.

He has been remanded in custody and is due to appear at Manchester Magistrates Court on Tuesday 23 February.

He also went on to add “We will try to update the public when we can with any further details, but this appears to be an isolated incident and there is not believed to be any threat to the wider community. If anyone knows, saw or heard anything that they think might assist police with their enquiries, I would ask them to please go and speak with these officers”.
