As the prosecution recounted on Monday in the first day of a murder trial in London’s Old Bailey, Koh brought two friends, Merse Dikanda and Jonathan Okigbo.

“It is not difficult to work out which side won,” prosecutor Richard Horwell told the court on Monday, according to the Independent. “Uzoka and Harper were outnumbered and bars stand little chance against knives.”
