#AceDailyNews reports that four men have been jailed for murder of #NHS worker in Newham

1./ Mohammad Jalloh, 19 (05.12.01), of Watt Street, Wapping, and Vagnei Colubali, 23 (18.01.98) of Suffolk Road, Enfield, must each serve at least 27 years in jail for the murder of 24-year-old David Gomoh last year.

2./ David Ture, 19 (09.11.01) of Bloomsbury Street, Camden, was sentenced to at least 26 years while Alex Melaku, 18 (16.9.03) of Bishopsdale, Telford, was handed a minimum of 21 years.

[David Gomoh]

Detective Chief Inspector Laurence Smith, who led the investigation, said: “These four defendants carried out a senseless attack on a completely innocent man and there is absolutely no doubt that London is a safer place with them behind bars: Despite the significant evidence linking them to this crime, all four refused to admit to their actions meaning David’s family and friends had to sit through a trial and re-live the worst night of their lives: “ Our thoughts, as always, remain with them and we hope they can now begin to grieve for the loss of their son and brother.”……….David was stabbed at least nine times by the group as he walked down Freemasons Road, E16 while on the phone to his girlfriend on 26 April 2020: He managed to stagger back to his home address where he collapsed on the ground outside. Despite being given emergency surgery in the street, David died soon after arriving at hospital: David was not involved in any gang but was targeted by the defendants because he lived in the wrong part of Newham and so was classed as a ‘rival’…..On the day of the murder, the four men armed themselves with knives and set out from a hotel in Stratford towards Canning Town in a stolen car fitted with false plates……….CCTV played in court showed that less than an hour before they set upon David, the defendants came across another man who they chased, carrying their weapons in their hands. Fortunately, he managed to outrun the group……..Cameras on board a bus then captured the car turning its lights off and stopping beside David, who turned to run as the doors to the vehicle opened. The attack itself was also caught on CCTV………His girlfriend, who he was speaking to at the time, heard a male voice ask ‘where are you from’ before the phone call ended.

CASE NOTES: Detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command quickly began an investigation and the stolen car was found abandoned in Lincoln Road, E13, less than a mile from the scene of the fatal stabbing: A pair of sunglasses were found on the back seat of the vehicle, with DNA evidence linking them to Mohammad Jalloh. Another pair of sunglasses was recovered from the scene of the attack; DNA from the 17-year-old was found upon the left arm: During a search of Ture’s address, a series of graphic drawings were located which appeared to depict the fatal stabbing. Not only was the address of the murder identified but the clothing worn by the group was also shown.

David’s mum Marian said: “David’s murder is without doubt the hardest thing my family and I have been through. It is something that no parent should ever go through. While this has been painful beyond words, I am beyond grateful to God that we have seen justice and the four men who took my son’s life have been found guilty: “ The family would like to thank all the first responders on the scene that fateful night; the media, the police, especially the investigating officers, who have worked so hard to secure justice for David Jason Junior Gomoh, who was such a charismatic, intelligent and focused young gentleman: “ Nothing will bring back a life that was so full of promise and hope, a life that was brutally taken away from us; but we are grateful that now we can begin to mourn and build a fitting legacy for David.”

(LONDON) Snaresbrook Crown Court Report: A man has been jailed for ten years after being convicted of the rape and assault of a former partner #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.12: He was also issued with a restraining order and placed on the sex offenders register: Miah had pleaded not guilty to all charges on Wednesday, 20 January….

#AceDailyNews reports that a Newham man Afzul Miah, 42 (31.10.78) of Victoria Avenue, E6 was sentenced to ten years’ imprisonment on Thursday, 9 September, at Snaresbrook Crown Court after being convicted of rape, grievous bodily harm, three counts of actual bodily harm and two counts of common assault.

Afzul Miah

COURT CASE NOTES: Snaresbrook Crown Court heard that on 4 March 2020, Miah assaulted the victim with a knife, causing a cut to her hand which required hospital treatment. When he accompanied her to the hospital he pressured her to lie about how she sustained the injury: Between the period of 8 March 2021 and 11 March 2021, Miah seriously assaulted, sexually assaulted and raped the victim. She managed to escape and sought refuge at a nearby shop where staff called police.

DI Jeremy McDermott from the Safeguarding team at the Met’s North East basic command unit said: “Miah’s actions were sadistically cruel and manipulative and were a threat to women. He has now faced justice for his crimes, which will sadly leave a lasting impact on the victim and her family. The victim is being supported by specialist officers: Rape, abuse and sexual offences are inexcusably horrific crimes. I would urge any victims to please talk to us and report it. We have specially trained officers who work closely with partner organisations to provide the right support. Please do not suffer in silence, because we are here to help: We will always do everything we possibly can to bring offenders to justice, just as we have done in this case.”

(LONDON) Old Bailey Court Report: Four Newham gang members who killed a NHS worker while on a ‘ride out’ to a rival gang’s area have today been convicted of murder #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.20: David Gomoh, 24, who had no links to any gangs, was killed in the random attack shortly after leaving his home in east London, on the evening of 26 April last year, at the height of the first pandemic lockdown….

#AceDailyNews reports that four ‘Newham Gang Members’ convicted of NHS Worker David Gomah murder in April 2020 at the time of the first lockdown …

11 August 2021:

Vagnei Colubali, 23, David Ture, 19, Muhammad Jalloh, 19, and a 17 year-old boy – members or associates of a gang that operates in the north of Newham – drove to rival territory in the south Newham area that evening prepared to ‘inflict serious and fatal injury’, the prosecution told a jury at the Old Bailey all four will be sentenced in September..

For this so called ‘ride out to the opp block’ they had arranged for a stolen Dodge Caliper to be parked the previous evening in preparation, and went equipped with knives and a change of clothes. They had also turned off their phones to evade police detection.

They drove around looking for potential targets and spotted Mr Gomoh at Freemasons Road, E16. He was on the phone to his girlfriend when he was approached by three of the four defendants and was stabbed ten times in a frenzied attack. Mr Gomoh died shortly after of catastrophic injuries.

DNA evidence, CCTV and drawings of before, during and after the attack made by Ture, elements of which helped identify some of the other killers, were used to secure their conviction.One of Ture’s drawings, which helped to identify the gang

Ture’s ‘childish doodles’ were recovered by the police in his bedroom drawer and showed the group at ‘Threemasons (sic) Road’ – the location of the killing. They also showed one of the gang members with an Armani man bag, which Colubali was seen wearing on CCTV.

The prosecution also relied on DNA evidence – which included the discovery of Jalloh’s DNA on sunglasses recovered from the back seat of the Dodge and the 17-year old’s DNA and David Gomoh’s blood upon sunglasses found at the scene of the attack. Both sunglasses belonged to the female owner of the stolen car.

All four will be sentenced on 17th September for murder and a further charge of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm related to an earlier failed attack.

CPS lawyer Louise Attrill said: “This case has highlighted a very stark reality of the tragedy that ensues from so called postcode killings and gang rivalries. These individuals planned to kill anyone they came across who they believed was from the opposing gang. David Gomoh was tragically caught in the middle of this senseless feud and, despite having no connection with gangs, was killed without hesitation or mercy: These defendants continue to show no remorse for their actions, claiming mistaken identity or providing no defence at all, but the prosecution has systematically exposed them as liars. They were all part of a co-ordinated group that set out looking to maim and kill: The impact and fallout of this senseless killing – simply to prove their allegiance to a gang – is far reaching. Their victim’s family and friends are left grieving from the loss of an innocent young man who had a promising future ahead. Our thoughts remain very much with them at this time and, while nothing can bring David back, we hope these convictions provide some comfort to them.”

Additional Notes:

  • Vagnei Colubali (DOB: 18/01/1998) is from Cambridge
  • Muhammad Jalloh (DOB: 05/12/2001) is from Pinner
  • David Ture (DOB: 09/10/2001) is of no fixed abode
  • The 17 year-old boy (DOB: 16/09/2003) is from Telford
  • Louise Attrill is a Senior Crown Prosecutor within the London CPS Homicide Team.

(LONDON) Old Bailey Court Report: Four people who fatally stabbed a 24-year-old NHS worker because he lived in south Newham have been found guilty of murder #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.12: Mohammad Jalloh, 19 (05.12.01), of Watt Street, Wapping; Vagnei Colubali, 23 (18.01.98) of Suffolk Road, Enfield; David Ture, 19 (09.11.01) of Bloomsbury Street, Camden and a 17-year-old male from Telford, Shropshire were convicted at the Old Bailey following a six-week trial which concluded on Wednesday, 11 August.

#AceDailyNews Court Report: Four guilty of murdering NHS worker in Newham after a six-week-trial ended yesterday Wednesday in the Old Bailey and they will be sentenced at the same court on Tuesday, 17 September.

[David Gomoh]

David was stabbed at least nine times by the group as he walked down Freemasons Road, E16 while on the phone to his girlfriend: He managed to stagger back to his home address where he collapsed on the ground outside. Despite being given emergency surgery in the street, David died soon after arriving at hospital.

Detective Chief Inspector Laurence Smith, who led the investigation, said: “David was a young man with ambitions to make something of himself but his life was cruelly snatched away at the age of just 24: He was not involved in any gang nor was he mistaken by the group for someone they knew. His only crime – in their eyes – was that he lived in the wrong part of Newham and so was classed as a rival: His family not only had to deal with the trauma of witnessing him dying outside of their own home but now have to face the reality of living without their son and brother for the rest of their lives: The court heard that on Sunday, 26 April 2020, the group – who all had links to gangs – armed themselves with knives and set out from a hotel in Stratford towards Canning Town in a stolen car fitted with false plates: They had just one purpose – to hunt out a potential ‘rival’ from Canning Town which they saw as ‘enemy territory: CCTV played in court showed that less than an hour before they set upon David, the defendants came across another man who they chased, carrying their weapons in their hands. Fortunately, he managed to outrun the group: Cameras on board a bus then captured the car turning its lights off and stopping beside David, who turned to run as the doors to the vehicle opened. The attack itself was also caught on CCTV: His girlfriend, who he was speaking to at the time, heard a male voice ask ‘where are you from’ before the phone call ended.

Detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command quickly began an investigation and the stolen car was found abandoned in Lincoln Road, E13, less than a mile from the scene of the fatal stabbing: A pair of sunglasses were found on the back seat of the vehicle, with DNA evidence linking them to Mohammad Jalloh. Another pair of sunglasses was recovered from the scene of the attack; DNA from the 17-year-old was found upon the left arm: CCTV seized also showed the four defendants meeting up earlier that day, leaving the same hotel in Forest Gate and walking down the road where they had parked the stolen car the previous evening. The car itself is then captured numerous times on CCTV as it made its journey south towards Freemasons Road: During a search of Ture’s address, a series of graphic drawings were located which appeared to depict the fatal stabbing. Not only was the address of the murder identified but the clothing worn by the group was also shown.

DCI Smith added: “The four defendants set out that night ready and armed for savage violence and it was obvious from the evidence gathered that their attack was premeditated: What they had not worked out was who their victim would be. They did not know David, they did not care who he was or whether he was involved in a rival gang. He was simply a fair target in their petty game: Our thoughts remain with David’s family who have conducted themselves with dignity throughout the investigation and trial. Nothing will ever bring David back but we hope knowing his killers will be behind bars brings some measure of comfort as they continue to grieve.”

David’s mum Marian said: “David’s murder is without doubt the hardest thing my family and I have been through. It is something that no parent should ever go through. While this has been painful beyond words, I am beyond grateful to God that today we have seen justice and the four men who took my son’s life have been found guilty: The family would like to thank all the first responders on the scene that fateful night; the media, the police, especially the investigating officers, who have worked so hard to secure justice for David Jason Junior Gomoh, who was such a charismatic, intelligent and focused young gentleman: Nothing will bring back a life that was so full of promise and hope, a life that was brutally taken away from us; but we are grateful that now we can begin to mourn and build a fitting legacy for David.”
