The man accused of murdering a lecturer outside his home in Hilldrop Crescent was remanded in custody this morning, as his case was adjourned.

Femi Nandap, 22, of Pett Street, Woolwich, has been charged with the murder of Dr Jeroen Ensink, 41, in Hilldrop Crescent last Tuesday. A post-mortem examination found he died from multiple stab wounds.

He appeared via video link from HMP Pentonville at the Old Bailey for a mention hearing today, and is scheduled to return on April 22.

Nandap was named as Timchang by police last week, but was named in court as Femi today.

Married Dr Ensink was senior lecturer in public health engineering at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, in Gower Street.

He was reported to have become a father just 10 days before his death.

Dr Ensink had been leading a study in the Democratic Republic of Congo to understand how improvements in water supply could control and prevent cholera outbreaks.

Prof Peter Piot, director of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, where Dr Ensink had worked for nearly 10 years, paid tribute to his former colleague.

He said: “Jeroen will be greatly missed by all the staff and students who had the opportunity to know and work with him, and the legacy of his work will continue in Asia and Africa. Our deepest condolences go to his family and friends.”

A full tribute to Dr Ensink will be in the Ham&High, on sale on Thursday.
