Jaydon James, 16 years old, was chased and stabbed in the back whilst in the Wood End area of Coventry on 24th November, after the arrival of individuals armed with knives in a stolen Peugeot 407 bearing a false numberplate. Two other teenagers amongst Jaydon James’ group that evening were slashed in the same incident, but survived.

The Prosecution case was that this was a gang-related attack as part of escalating violence between two rival gangs in the Coventry area. It was alleged that Mr Ngozi, who was at the time 16 years old, travelled to Wood End in the Peugeot 407 with at least four others, including his two co-accused Frank Ymele Kenfack and Abdirazac Hussain Abdi, and participated in the attack.

The defence case was that Mr Ngozi had never been present in the car and was not involved with the attack or the gang-related backdrop.

Mr Ngozi was unanimously acquitted after a 6 week trial. Mr Kenfack and Mr Abdi were both convicted.

James & Vittoria were instructed by Michelle Fraiser at Carter Osborne Solicitors

The case was reported by the BBC and can be found here.
