Three men, including a teenager, jailed in connection with Ilford murder
Two brothers and a teenager have been jailed in connection with the death of Kamran Khalid in Ilford.
The brothers, and a 17-year-old boy who was then 15, were arrested and charged within a week of 18-year-old Khalid’s death following a diligent investigation by detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command.
Detective Chief Inspector Joanna Yorke, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: “This was an extreme and brutal attack over a minor disagreement.
“Abubakar Binabdulaziz and the teenage boy carried out a ferocious attack that ended with Kamran being stabbed more than 30 times. It is alarming that a row sparked such extreme violence.”
All three defendants, who were previously found guilty at Basildon Crown Court, appeared at the same court on Friday, 8 September, where they were sentenced as follows:
Abubakar Binabdulaziz, 20, of Eton Road, Ilford was sentenced to 21 years’ imprisonment for murder.
A 17-year-old boy from Ilford was sentenced to 16 years’ imprisonment for murder.
Ashraf Binabdulaziz, 26, of Eton Road, Ilford was sentenced to 11 years’ imprisonment for manslaughter.
The court had heard how Khalid was murdered in the early hours of 28 October, 2021 after having an argument with the group.
Police were called to Harrow Road, Ilford at 03:54hrs to reports of a stabbing.
Officers attended with the London Ambulance Service [LAS] and London’s Air Ambulance [HEMS].
Khalid was found suffering with multiple knife wounds. He was treated at the scene but despite the best efforts of the emergency services to save him, he was sadly pronounced dead a short time later.
DCI Yorke added: “This has been a harrowing experience for Kamran’s loved ones. I hope that the sentences handed down are of some comfort, and my thoughts are with them today.”
