A man has reportedly been sentenced to 13 years imprisonment over the murder of a Nigerian man in London.

Evan Edwards, 20, has been jailed for 13 years at the Old Bailey after admitting to the manslaughter of 22-yr-old Babafemi Junaid.

Babatunde was reportedly stabbed on February 7, 2014 and later died after being rushed to the hospital.

A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as a single stab wound to the heart.

The victim is said to have become the inadvertent focus of an attack by a group after a disturbance on a 155 bus spilled was taken unto the streets.He had not been on the bus but was waiting at the bus stop when the disturbance spilled out onto the pavement at Stockwell station.

As he attempted to get away from the fracas when he was targeted, he was then chased and attacked by the group.

During the attack one of the attackers was witnessed waving a knife, as Babafemi fell to the ground.

Babafemi managed to run to his car which was a short distance away but, as a result of his injuries, crashed his car into the back of a bus soon after.

The same group that initially attacked him then set upon him again opening three of its doors to kick and punch him until bystanders came over to intervene.
