TWO men who beat an Uxbridge man to death in a 'drink induced unprovoked attack' are facing life in jail.
Sade Samanter, 21, (first picture) was today (Wednesday) found guilty of murder of Abdullahi Osman in Ealing last August, after a trial at the Old Bailey.
His accomplice, Ibrahim Dualeh (bottom picture), 34, initially denied murder, but changed his plea to guilty.
They will both be sentenced on a date to be confirmed.
The pair set upon Abdullahi Osman, 31, in Dean Gardens, Ealing, in the early hours of August 11 2011 - three days after the Ealing riots.
Mr Osman, a Somali national who was living in Uxbridge, was found by parademics with serious head injuries.
He was taken to St Mary's Hospital where he remained in a critical condition and on life-support for over 24 hours.
Despite extensive treatment, his condition worsened, and he died two days later.
A post mortem gave the cause of death as a blunt trauma injury to the head.
Samanter and Dualeh, both of no fixed abode, were arrested close to the scene around 20 minutes after the assault.
They were subsequently charged with GBH, and then charged with murder following Mr Osman's death.
Detective Inspector Simon Ashwin, of the Homicide and Serious Crime Command [HSCC], said: "Mr Osman was fatally assaulted during a drink induced unprovoked attack.
"Samanter and Dualeh were identified minutes after they left the scene by officers with the assistance of Ealing Borough CCTV operators, leaving them with no opportunity to evade the police."
A third man, 23-year-old Mohamed Ahmed Jeylani, was charged with GBH in connection with the incident, but later released with no further action.
