Four killers of Winstanley Estate teenager get total of 85 years for his murder

Four teenagers were jailed at the Old Bailey on Wednesday, 28 March, for a combined total of over 85 years for the murder of 17-year-old Mahamed Hassan, who was fatally stabbed in Wandsworth in April 2017.

Donald Goate-Oueyeya, 18, of Stockwell Road, Lambeth was sentenced to 19 and a half years for murder and violent disorder. He had pleaded guilty to the latter at an earlier hearing.

Kishon Allen, 19, of Mount Road, Mitcham was sentenced to 21 and a half years after being found guilty of murder and violent disorder.

The judge lifted a reporting restriction preventing the naming of Ralique Young, 17, of Blackshaw Road, Tooting. He was sentenced to 18 years for murder.

Tyriq Aboagye, of Westbury Road, Ilford, who turns 19 in a week, was sentenced to 27 and half years after being found guilty of murder, violent disorder and perverting the course of justice.

They were convicted at the Old Bailey on Thursday, 15 March, following a trial which started on 8 January 2018. They were all sentenced at the same court on Wednesday, 28 March.

The jury heard how police and the London Ambulance Service were called to Sullivan Close, on the Winstanley Estate, near Clapham Junction, at 1.25am on Sunday, 23 April to reports of a male stabbed.

Mahamed was found wounded at the scene. He was taken to a South London hospital where sadly, he was pronounced dead at 2.50am.

A post-mortem examination that took place on Tuesday, 25 April at St Georges Hospital Mortuary gave the cause of death as a stab wound to the abdomen.

The case was investigated by detectives from the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command, led by Detective Chief Inspector Graeme Gwyn.

Enquiries established that Mahamed Hassan was chased up Meyrick Road on the night of the murder and stabbed outside Scholey House in Sullivan Close.

As a result of the investigation the four males were arrested and charged.

The judge asked for images of weapons discovered during a search at Young’s house to be released.

Detective Inspector Domenica Catino of the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command said: “This sentencing will not bring back Mahamed – a young man who should have had a long life ahead of him has been taken from his family; we hope it does however bring them a sense of closure.

“This sentencing should act further act as a deterrent to anyone concerned in carrying knives of the devastating consequences it can have. These four males will now spend the best years of their lives in prison.”
