Man Jailed For Stabbing Rival Gang Member

A man who stabbed a rival gang member in west london has been jailed for 14 years.

A man was jailed for 14 years today, for a knife attack on a rival and for having a gun.

Duale Jama, 21, was told he was part of the gang culture blighting cities.

His victim Shameem Momin, 25, had "made himself scarce" because he was too scared to give evidence against Jama, said Judge Christopher Moss.

Mr Momin had been stabbed nine times as he was attacked by a gang on a stairwell of the flats where he lived in Hayes, west London, in March.

"He was indeed fortunate to survive," Judge Moss told the Old Bailey.

After Jama was arrested, a search of his Hayes home disclosed a prohibited weapon which Jama said he was hiding for someone else.

He was found guilty of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and jailed for nine years.

Jama pleaded guilty to having a firearm and was given a further five years.

Judge Moss told him: "You are a member of the gang culture which blights our cities."

He said the court had not been able to find out what the attack was for and Jama had only been caught because a policeman identified him from CCTV.
