28 years for killers of innocent man
Saturday 22 October 2011
Two members of a gang who gunned down and killed an innocent man by mistake were jailed for 28 years each yesterday.
Personal trainer Michael Ofori, 35, had been sitting in his car talking to his wife when the killers struck.
Mr Ofori had been mistaken for the intended target following a spate of drug-related tit-for-tat shootings, the Old Bailey heard.
Aftab Jafferjee, QC, prosecuting, told the court: "The intended target of this roadside execution was in fact another man all together."
Sahid Sule, 23, of no fixed address, and Nicholas Allon-McVytie, 23, of Deptford, south London, were found guilty of murder. Sule was said to have orchestrated the hit and Allon-McVytie was the getaway driver.
They were jailed for life with a minimum term of 28 years. Two other men face a retrial for murder after the jury could not agree verdicts.
