Girlfriend Salma Begum, 19, has paid tribute to Hosam Eisa who died in hospital after suffering a stab wound in the shopping centre’s car park on Thursday.

Salma was with her boyfriend of about nine months when he died.

She said: “It’s going to sound all cliché and cheesy but honestly there are no words to describe him.

“He was an amazing person to so many people, a great brother and son to his family, a helpful and kind friend.

“Most of all, he was an amazing boyfriend who I loved with all my heart, the first person I learned to love and learned a lot about life from him.

“He’d always be there when I needed him and was always by my side.

“Now that he’s not here, I feel so empty and lost without him.

“The pain is unbelievable and the memories are still so raw and fresh in my mind it hurts.

“I couldn’t do anything about it except just watch him dying in front of me.”

Hosam, originally from Egypt, moved to Mantova, Italy, in 2002 with his parents and five brothers before they moved to Dagenham last year.

Friends have also taken to social media to pay tribute to him, describing Hosam as “funny” and a “good brother”.

Elisa Facchini said: “I will always remember your contagious smile and your sense of humour” while Oscar Shah said “When someone close to you gets killed for no reason it hurts so much! May Allah grant you Jannah”.

Gjergji Hoco said: “Hi my friend Hosam Ali Eisa, news of your death was a shock for everyone who knew you.

“I’m proud to have known you and be your friend.

“I’ll always remember you with your contagious smile and the joy that you brought to everyone with your kindness and desire to make everyone smile.

“Miss you so much but I will never forget you.”
