The Message A Murderer Has for Schoolchildren. Watch the video with Sadam Essakhil talk dangers of carrying knives
The latest anti-knife crime campaign shown in schools in the West Midlands. Video centred around a man serving a life sentence for a murder he committed as a schoolboy.
Sadam Essakhil was 15 when he murdered Lukasz Furmanek in Handsworth on 31 May 2015.
Like many teenagers in Britain’s big cities, Sadam believed he needed to carry a knife for protection. He and an older friend, Abdullah Atiqzoy, 18, were walking towards an all-night supermarket. This at 03:00 BST when they encountered two Polish men coming the other way.
It is not clear how the fight started but Essakhil and Atiqzoy were armed. In less than 60 seconds, Mr Furmanek lay dying and his friend Joseph Dudek was critically injured. Joseph suffered multiple stab wounds.
During the trial at Birmingham Crown Court the incident was described as “sudden, shocking and brutal”.
