20 Year Old Nigerian Brit, 1 Other Bag 13 Years Each for Serious Knife Attacks In London

Two men have been jailed at the Old Bailey following two serious knife attacks that were committed within the space of an hour

Collins Adesoji, 20, (26.01.98) of Listowel Close, SW9 was sentenced to 13 years’ imprisonment on Tuesday, 27 March having been convicted of conspiracy to commit assault causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

Bujwawne Brooks, 19 (08.04.98) of Lakeview Road, SE27 was sentenced to 13 years’ imprisonment at the same hearing having been convicted of the same offences.

They had previously been found guilty on 8 December 2017.

The two incidents happened on the afternoon of 27 December 2016.

In the first attack, a boy – aged 16 at the time – was stabbed near to Oval Underground Station at around 17:00hrs. He was taken to hospital for treatment to his injury.

It has never been established who inflicted the stab injury or the exact location of the incident. However, a police investigation found that both Adesoji and Brooks had been among a group of males who had been involved in an altercation with the victim and three of his associates during which the teenager was stabbed.

It is believed that this attack was associated with the defendants’ gang activities.

Adesoji drove away from the scene in a Ford Focus, which also contained Brooks and at least one other passenger.

Around 45 minutes later, Adesoji and Brooks were in the same Ford Focus on Coldharbour Lane in Brixton when they confronted two boys who had been with the victim of the earlier stabbing.

They followed the boys in the Ford Focus to Windrush Square, where a funfair, busy with families and children, was operating.

The Ford Focus mounted the pavement and collided with an 18-year-old man sitting on his bicycle who had not been involved in the earlier incidents.

The man was knocked off his bicycle before being attacked by one of the occupants of the Ford Focus, who stabbed him in the thigh whilst he was on the ground trying to fend off the blows. The identity of the man who carried out the stabbing has not been established; however the court heard that Adesoji and Brooks were two of the three occupants of the car.

They attempted to make off in the vehicle by reversing down Rushcroft Road, but due to the damage sustained in the collision, they abandoned it and made off on foot.

The victim’s femoral artery was severed – an injury which is often fatal – but a doctor passing by the scene administered life-saving first aid by using her scarf as a tourniquet to stem the flow of blood. She was also helped by members of the public until police and an ambulance arrived at the scene.



The Met’s Trident and Area Crime Command launched an investigation, and linked the two incidents.

The abandoned vehicle was linked to Adesoji, and forensic evidence from the car and phone evidence linked Brooks to the offences.

Adesoji was arrested on 30 December 2016. Brooks was arrested on 6 June 2017.

These men went out that day intent on committing serious violence on, possibly rival gang members, the reasons for which are still unclear.

Detective Constable Patrick White who led the investigation said: “The actions of Adesoji and Brooks resulted in a young teenager being stabbed in Kennington and a violent attack on a young man in Brixton at a funfair.

“They used an extreme level of violence and showed a total disregard for families and children who were at the funfair.

“We will not allow these kind of community events to be used by gangs for criminal purposes.

“This type of violence will not be tolerated on the streets of London, and we have worked tirelessly to bring these types of violent offenders to justice.

“Anyone with information about those involved in gang activity and violence can call police via 101. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through their website.”

Teenager Faces Life In Jail For Stabbing His “Friend” In The Heart And Leaving Him In Permanent Vegetative State

A teenager has been convicted at the Old Bailey of a vicious stabbing in south London that left his 17-year-old victim in a minimally conscious state following a catastrophic brain injury.

Tyrese Osei-Kofi, 18 (18.06.99), of Lordship Lane, SE22, was found guilty on Tuesday, 27 March of inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent on Jamel Boyce in Clapham Common on 14 October 2016.

Osei-Kofi was found not guilty of attempted murder.

An investigation was launched after police were called by the London Ambulance Service just after 19:00hrs that evening to reports that a young man had been stabbed in Triangle Place, SW4, near the entrance to a supermarket car park.

Officers and the LAS attended and found Jamel with stab wounds to the chest and leg. While the latter wound was superficial, the other had penetrated his heart and punctured his lung, which caused Jamel to collapse and go into cardiac arrest.

Paramedics and a trauma team who treated him at the scene performed surgery on the roadside and managed to restart Jamel’s heart before he was rushed to hospital. However, he had been deprived of oxygen for a critical 14 minutes, which was found to have caused around a 75 to 80 per cent loss of brain function.

Doctors concluded that Jamel, a business student at St Francis Xavier College in Clapham, had been left in a ‘vegetative state’ by the brain injury and was extremely unlikely to ever make any significant recovery. He was subsequently transferred to a specialist long-term care facility where he remains today.

The jury at the Old Bailey was shown CCTV footage of Jamel in McDonalds earlier that afternoon with a group of friends including Osei-Kofi. Around four hours later, shoppers observed a scuffle going on outside the car park of a local supermarket and described seeing Jamel pinned up against a wall by Osei-Kofi, while other youths watched ‘like a pack of animals surrounding a buffalo’, in the words of one witness.

Osei-Kofi was heard shouting for a ‘chiv’ (knife) whilst holding his right arm against Jamel’s neck to trap the teenager against some railings before inflicting the stab wounds and leaving the scene

Osei-Kofi was first interviewed after handing himself into police on 20 October 2016 following media appeals in which his father recognised him. He was subsequently re-arrested on 22 December 2016, and charged on 13 April 2017.

Following the verdict Detective Constable Sarah Mustoe, who led the investigation, said: “On 14 October 2016, Jamel’s future was cruelly torn from him. Following what appears to have been a minor disagreement, he received what clearly would have been a fatal stab wound to the chest had it not been for the skill of the trauma team who attended the scene. Sadly, as a result of this injury, Jamel was left fighting for his life and suffered a severe and permanent brain injury.

“Jamel maintains an extremely low level of consciousness; he has been left paralysed, blind, unable to communicate, and in need of 24-hour care. His life was changed dramatically following those few seconds and his family’s grief at losing the boy they cherished is immeasurable.

“I hope some closure can be gained from the perpetrator having been brought to account for his terrible crime. I would like to pay tribute to Jamel’s parents, who have maintained dignity and composure throughout this last 17 months, and to thank the witnesses who did come forward to help Jamel that night and at court.

“This case shows the stark reality of carrying a knife and the consequences of using one. Jamel was a business studies student, with no links to gangs, who had never come to the attention of police. Everyone we spoke to described him as a shy, polite, conscientious young man who hid his shyness behind a big smile. Osei-Kofi has yet to reveal his motive for the stabbing and his parents are left without answers as to how this could have happened to their son.”

Osei-Kofi will be sentenced on Friday, 4 May.

Speaking after the trial, Jamel’s mother Pansy Boyce thanked the London Air Ambulance Service, Kings College Hospital and Northwick Park Hospital for going to extreme measures to save Jamel’s life, first at the scene and then in the days and weeks following the incident.

She said: “The care that Jamel received from the medical team was second to none. He fought for his life in those first few weeks and they were there every step of the way to help him. I also want to extend my deepest thanks to the two officers who gave first aid to Jamel, and to Dr Konig and his team for saving my son. Without their courage, determination and brilliance, my son would not be alive today.
“Lastly, I would like to pay tribute to my Family Liaison Officer and the investigation team who have been a constant source of support through the darkest days.”
