Daily Mail said that at a brief hearing at the Old Bailey yesterday, Femi(pictured) admitted the manslaughter of Dr Ensink by reason of diminished responsibility and the case was adjourned until October 10 for sentencing.

Dr Ensink, 41, was killed outside his Islington home on December 29 last year. His killing occurred 11 days after he became a father for the first time and had gone out to post new baby cards to inform friends and family of the arrival of his daughter Fleur.dr-esink

The report said Femi approached the deceased(pictured right) in the street and straddled him while stabbing him repeatedly and when witnesses rushed to protect him the killer stood nearby still clutching a large kitchen knife.

It was reported that the 23-year old Nigerian has criminal record and was arrested in May last year, and charged with wielding knives in public and assaulting a police officer.

But the case was dropped after the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) claimed they did not have enough evidence to prosecute him. It was reported that Femi flew back to Nigeria in June for three months, missing his bail appointment in August.

However, he finally appeared in court in October, but was granted bail by magistrates – despite objections from the prosecutor.
