Sodiq Adeojo, 20, was part of a group from Brixton’s GAS Gang who chased another Nigerian Sylvester Akapalara, 17, and two friends. The victim, a promising 400-metre runner with Herne Hill Harriers – was hit in the neck by a bullet near the top of a Peckham tower block.
The other boys, 17, were chased to the ground floor. Their exit was blocked and they were stabbed by Adeojo as they tried to force their way out.
After the killing the gang put out leaflets warning witnesses not to “snitch” on the murderers. But Adeojo was convicted of murder after an eight-week trial at the Old Bailey. His brother Qudus, 18, and a 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were cleared of their part in the killing.
A fourth alleged gang member, David Nyamupfukudza, 18, may be re-tried after jurors failed to agree a verdict.
