A video has surfaced online that appears to show a convicted murderer from Custom House recording a rap tune in his cell.

Terngu Agera, known as Mover, was jailed for life in May last year for stabbing builder Zydrunas Laurinavicius to death in broad daylight.

Since then, a grainy-sounding rap bearing his name and with music and video footage that appears to have been added afterwards, has been uploaded to YouTube.

The five minute 30 second track, posted at the end of last year, has been viewed more than 108,000 times.

Lines in the rap include what appear to be references to the death of Mr Laurinavicius, who lived in Holyhead Close, East Ham.

Multiple posts have also been made on social media accounts in his name.

Agera, who lived in Sophia Road, Canning Town, was 23 when an Old Bailey judge sentenced him to a minimum of 30 years in prison alongside Stephen Lansana, then 22 and of no fixed address, on May 15 last year.

They were both found guilty of stabbing Lithuanian national Mr Laurinavicius outside a school in Hendon, north London, as he walked to a bus stop with his father in July 2014.

The 38-year-old’s work bag and watch were stolen and a knife was put to his father’s throat.

Three other men were jailed for conspiracy to burgle in relation to the murder.
