Detective Chief Inspector Jim Shirley said: "While it is positive that we have made three arrests today, the hard work does not stop here. We are continuing to appeal for witnesses to come forward. Takayo was stabbed to death in broad daylight in front of a huge crowd of people.


"I am confident that there are people out there who have not yet spoken to us, for whatever reason that may be. "If you saw something and have not yet spoken to us, please do so as a matter of urgency.


"Don't do it for me, do it for Takayo's family who are still trying to come to terms with their terrible loss."
