A Nigerian man who stabbed a father-of-two to death on a busy high street has been jailed for 18 years.

.

.

Abraham Omotoso, 27, of Tudor Gardens, Harrow, plunged a knife into the chest of 34-year-old Mohamed Al-Zufairi in High Street, Wealdstone in February this year.

.

.

Mr Al-Zufairi had been waiting outside Poundland for his eight-year-old daughter when he was attacked. She did not witness her father being stabbed.

.

.

Omotoso was found guilty of manslaughter at the Old Bailey and will serve 18 years behind bars for his crime. Investigating officer detective inspector Jon Meager said: “Omotoso has shown no remorse for his actions on that day.

.

.

I hope his conviction gives Mohamed’s family a measure of closure and comfort.” CCTV footage of the incident showed Omotoso walking in a “purposeful” manner before approaching Mr Al-Zufairi.

.

.

Witnesses reported a short argument between the pair before Omotoso stabbed his victim and fled the scene. He was arrested at Gatwick Airport the next day having just bought a one-way ticket to Nigeria with cash.

.

.

Police believe the motive for the killing was an ongoing feud between the victim’s brothers and Omotoso’s brothers and friends.
