Nigerian man found guilty of killing father of two in the UK

  • A Nigerian man who stabbed a father to death in a busy high street while his young daughter was in a nearby shop has been found guilty of killing him in the U.K.

    Abraham Omotoso, 27, of Tudor Gardens, Harrow, was found guilty of manslaughter at the Old Bailey yesterday, Friday, 15 September, following a two-week trial. He was found not guilty of murder. He will be sentenced at the same court on Friday, 13 October.

    Police were called at about 18:50hrs on Monday, 27 February 2017 to reports that a man had been stabbed in High Street, Wealdstone.

    The man was taken to a central London hospital by London Ambulance Service but despite the best efforts of medical staff and extensive surgery, he was pronounced dead at about 02:30hrs on Tuesday, 28 February.

    The victim was identified as Mohamed Al-Zufairi, 34, a father-of-two from Harrow. A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as a stab wound to the chest.

    Shortly before 18:50hrs on 27 February, Mohamed arrived in High Street, Wealdstone, with his eight-year-old daughter. He sent her into Poundland to buy some items while he waited outside. It was then that he was approached by Omotoso.

    Witnesses reported that they had a short argument before Omotoso, who was wearing a parka-style coat with the hood pulled up, stabbed Mohamed and ran from the scene still holding the knife. Luckily, Mohamed’s daughter did not witness the incident.
