Harry Uzoka

Fans of Nigerian-born British model Harry Uzoka are still reeling from the news of his tragic death at the hands of 2 rival models.

Nigerian-born models George Koh, 24, and Jonathan Okigbo, 23, were arrested and charged with stabbing the 25-year-old model on January 11 in west London.

Harry was stabbed once in the chest and died before doctors could save him.

Friends say Koh, who walked for Louis Vuitton in runway shows, stabbed Harry in a fit of rage because he envied the young model’s success. It isn’t clear why Okigbo was charged.

Harry was a model with Premier Model Management, and walked in runway shows in London, Milan and Paris. He also appeared in major campaigns for Mercedes Benz and Zara menswear.

“Premier Model Management are shocked and saddened by the devastating news of one of our dearly loved models Harry’s passing,” Premier said in a statement. “Premier Model Management’s thoughts and priorities are with the Uzoka family and friends.”

Another agency, IMG Models, confirmed the agency had not managed Harry in nearly a year, according to ABC News.

Harry’s distraught girlfriend remembered him in an emotional Instagram.com post on Tuesday.
