Following an investigation by Thames Valley Police’s Major Crime Unit, a man has been sentenced for manslaughter in Milton Keynes.
Justice Will-Mamah, aged 18, of Coniston Way, Bletchley, has today (28/2) been sentenced to 11 years in prison at Luton Crown Court.
On 9 September last year, Will-Mamah was found guilty by majority jury verdict of one count of manslaughter and one count of possession of a knife blade/pointed article in a public place.
On 11 February last year, 16-year-old Ahmednur Nuur was in Palace Square near the junction with Rainbow Drive in Leadenhall, where he was stabbed by Will-Mamah.
Will-Mamah fled the scene leaving Ahmednur seriously injured.
Ahmednur collapsed outside the Chaffron Way campus of Milton Keynes College, where staff and students provided first aid until emergency services arrived.
Sadly, he died later at hospital.
Will-Mamah was arrested the same day and charged three days later.
Senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Blaik, of the Major Crime Unit, said: “The death of Ahmednur has left his family completely devastated.
“Ahmednur was an intelligent boy who had a bright future ahead of him.
“This is another terrible example of how knives ruin lives.
“The incredibly powerful impact statements heard in court today exemplifies why we all have an
important part to play in stopping the carrying of knives.
“Through Operation Deter, launched to tackle knife crime in Milton Keynes, Thames Valley Police will continue to robustly and proactively pursue those carrying knives; there is simply no excuse for it.
“Our thoughts remain with Ahmednur’s family.”
