A gang has been jailed for dismembering the body of a musician in Barnes and murdering another man in Hounslow

53 year old trumpeter William Algar, known as Blaise, was discovered dead at his home in January last year. 

35 year old Ebrima Cham was killed in a "frenzied attack" at a flat in December 2019.

Emeka Dawuda-Wodu, Janayo Lucima, Zimele Dube, Simon Emmons, and Marc Harding have been jailed for between 3 and 31 years.

Detective Chief Inspector Vicky Tunstall said: “I would personally like to thank all those witnesses who gave evidence about the murders and subsequent confessions. They knew how violent this gang were and the defendant’s readiness to use the most extreme violence. Despite this, these witnesses still had the courage to come forward and tell the court what had happened. Some of the witnesses were drug takers, but they attended court and gave evidence. Justice often depends on the bravery of such people and I applaud their actions.

“The sentences passed down by the courts – especially in relation to the murder of Brim Cham – properly reflect the danger these men represent to society and the public can feel confident they will be off the streets for a very long time. I would like to praise the family of Brim Cham and the dignity they showed throughout these very difficult proceedings.”

The court heard Ebrima Cham was 35-years-old when he was murdered on December the 19th, 2019. He lived at various places around the Hounslow area.

Ebrima had developed a reputation for robbing other drug dealers and it is believed that one of these robberies led him into confrontation with Zimele Dube.

On the day of the murder, Cham was staying at a flat in Grove Road, Hounslow. After they found out he was at the address, Dube and Emmons and Dawuda-Woda got in contact with each other by phone and all three set off to the flat in a car that was being driven by a friend.

At around 11:15am all three went to the flat door and when no one answered they broke the door down and rushed in.

Ebrima was found a short while later lying on the kitchen floor, he had been repeatedly stabbed. Meanwhile the three assailants had returned to the car and were driven from the scene.

Police and paramedics attended the stabbing, but despite their efforts Ebrima was pronounced dead.

At a post mortem examination on Saturday, the 21st of December it was discovered that Ebrima had been stabbed 11 times, but it was a deep wound to his chest that proved fatal.

The team of detectives investigating the murder located CCTV of the car used by Dube, Emmons and Dawuda-Woda.
