A Nigerian man, Abraham Omotoso, has been sentenced to 18 years imprisonment for killing a father of two in the UK.
The 27-year-old stabbed the man on his chest at High Street, Wealdstone.
According to Daily Mail, the victim identified as Mohamed Al-Zufairi
took his eight-year-old daughter to buy sweets and was waiting for her
outside the shop when Omotoso approached him.
The duo had an argument before Omotoso, who was wearing a parka-style
coat with the hood pulled up, stabbed Mr Al-Zufairi and ran away.
He was arrested the next day at Gatwick Airport after buying a one-way ticket to Lagos Nigeria.
During the first trial, Omotoso who has eight previous convictions,
including battery and drug offences accepted stabbing Mr Al-Zufairi but
claimed he acted in self defense.
However, the Investigating officer, Detective Inspector Jon Meager
found him guilty of manslaughter and sentenced him to 18 years behind
He said, ‘’CCTV footage of the incident showed Omotoso walking in a “purposeful” manner before approaching Mr Al-Zufairi.’’
‘’I hope his conviction gives Mohamed’s family a measure of closure and comfort.”
