Man sentenced to 13 years in prison for the murder of a Nigerian in London

  

Today Tuesday, Nov. 24, Evan Edwards, 20 (right), was jailed for 13 years at the Old Bailey after admitting to the manslaughter of 22-year-old Babafemi Junaid (Left), Metropolitan Police UK states.

Babatunde was stabbed on February 7, 2014 and later died in hospital. A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as a single stab wound to the heart. Babafemi became the inadvertent focus of an attack by a group after a disturbance on a 155 bus spilled out onto the street.

e was not on the bus but was waiting at the bus stop when the disturbance spilled out onto the pavement at Stockwell station. As he attempted to get away from the fracas when he was targeted, chased and attacked by the group.

During the attack one of the attackers was witnessed waving a knife, when Babafemi fell to the ground. He managed to run to his car which was a short distance away but, as a result of his injuries, crashed his car into the back of a bus soon after. The same group that initially attacked him then set upon him again opening three of its doors to kick and punch him until bystanders came over to intervene.
