Detective Chief Inspector David Swift-Rollinson, of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit’s Major Crime team, said: “This was a violent and senseless attack. Sillah knew that his actions would cause serious harm but that didn’t stop him from using a knife."

Sheriff Adekunwe Oluwa, 20, of Upperton Road, Leicester, was also found guilty for violent disorder and will serve 30 months jail time.

Lebato tried to defend himself with a fire extinguisher as Sillah points a knife in direction, a video released by Leicestershire Police has shown. 

Tagbeu Lebato, Lauric's father, said in the campaign film; “You have just watched my son Lauric being stabbed to death. I told you it would be shocking"

A campaign called Think Lives Not Knives has been launched by Lebato's father in partnership with the police to make people aware of the how knife crime affects victim's families.
