A 23-year-old Nigerian man, Femi Tinchang Nandap  has been sentenced for stabbing to death a renowned professor, Jeroen Ensink in front of his home in Islington, north London.

Nandap who committed the crime in December last year, has pleaded guilty to  manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility on Monday, October 10th, 2016.

According to Daily Mail UK, the 41-year-old fahter of one,  Dr Ensink was brutally stabbed severally with a knife by  Nandap who approached him on December 29th, 2015 as he stepped out during lunch hour to post a number cards to his friend and families about his new born baby a the time.

Detective Chief Inspector Jamie Piscopo, of the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command, said:
“I hope today’s sentence will bring some peace and closure to Jeroen’s family. What should have been the happiest time of Jeroen’s life was ended on 29 December 2015 by the violent and unprovoked actions of Nandap. Jeroen did not stand a chance during the attack, and now, sadly, his daughter will grow up without her father in her life.”

Dr Ensink’s devastated wife,  Nadja while speaking to the court said:

 “I’m here to show how a single, mindless act affected us for life. No words can ever describe the loss and pain we’re going through.


“Jeroen was everyone’s friend, but he was my soulmate. Our daughter was born on 18 December and it was everything Jeroen ever wanted. He was the proudest man ever, but he only got to share her life for 11 days.

“These were the happiest days of his and my life. Jeroen was stabbed outside our front door in a random attack by a complete stranger. The cards announcing our joy were scattered in the street stained with his blood. On 29 December 2015 my world collapsed and stopped turning.

“I don’t know how I managed to go on, and I still don’t know. Almost 10 months have passed and our daughter has flourished into the most wonderful human being and she brings so much love and light into my life, but there’s also a massive void that cannot be filled.

“I’m dreading the day when she asks why she does not have a father and I have to explain what’s happened. Not only was the love of my life taken from me but with him all our hopes and dreams. He never got a real chance to see me be a mother. The life we had started ended before we had a chance to settle into it.”

Judge Nicholas Hilliard who presided over the case had this to say about Dr Ensink:
“This was an attack of extreme ferocity, there was no surviving it. No sentence I can pass can begin to reflect the enormity of the family’s loss. It’s rightly been said that his death is a loss to a large proportion of the world’s poor. It’s a dreadful irony that a man who devoted his life to those he would never know or meet, was himself killed by a stranger.”
