Allan Isichei Wiki – Allan Isichei Biography
A ‘brutal’ schizophrenic with a criminal history with a knife was arrested indefinitely today for the murder of a former Wasps rugby player who complained of spitting on the street.
Gurjeet Lall, 36, repeatedly stabbed her beloved grandfather Allan Isichei, 69, while she was in ‘acute psychosis’ for 20 months after not taking her medication.
He had argued with Mr. Isichei about spitting on the pavement before stabbing it in the stomach with a large kitchen knife that he hid in a paper sheath in his pocket.
Lall told the judges that he carried the knife ‘to look cool and feel dangerous’.
However, he refused to go to court for his conviction because of ‘anxiety’ and refuses to take any anti-psychotic medication in the psychiatric unit where he is still detained.
Judge Usha Karu ordered Lall to be detained at a psychiatric hospital under the Mental Health Act ‘without time limit’, saying: ‘According to all evidence, I am convinced that there is a risk of serious harm and that it is dangerous.
He stated that he did not want to use drugs until now, that the defendant did not come to the court today, and that antipsychotic treatment has not started at this time.
“There is a greater risk of psychotic episodes, especially if he does not take more antipsychotic medication, it is not clear when the risk of serious psychotic harm will be reduced.”
Siobhan Gray QC, on behalf of Lall, said, ‘Community treatment was under orders, she was sent back to her GP.
He switched from depot injection to oral tablet form and suffered a sudden relapse, Dr Lock admitted that knife carry was an indication of this.
Released in 2018, he was texting him, which is a sign of psychosis, a clear deterioration in his mental state. ‘
According to the London Internal Court, Lall has a history of knife crime and was sentenced to four months in prison after being caught with a knife at the Heathrow Airport bus terminal just six months before the murder.
After the murder he had collected on time for at least 20 months, a collection of unopened antipsychotic medicine boxes was found in his home.
Mr. Isichei went for a beer at this local The Pllow Inn in Southall, west of London, on August 24, 2019, and met Lall outside.
A prominent part-time rugby coach for Wasps rugby club in the 1970s and 1980s was caught on CCTV passing in front of Lall spitting on the sidewalk.
After the encounter, Lall spat out again and pulled an 11cm long knife into the paper sheath in his right pocket before stabbing Mr. Isichei several times.
An ambulance was called in to take him to the hospital, Mr. Isichei was in critical condition and had to stop.
A helicopter ambulance arrived and a thoracotomy was performed on the victim’s chest but died an hour and a half later.
Police followed the trail of blood from the scene to Lall’s address at Lall at Vine Cottages in Hanwell.
In a statement he made to the police six days after the attack, he claimed that he was acting in self-defense.
Providing evidence, Lall claimed that the victim was accidentally killed when the 69-year-old made the ‘move’ and fell on the knife.
Lall alleged that Mr. Isichei punched the stomach with his empty hand and that the blade only went into the stomach when it fell on the victim.
He claimed that his boss of the construction company had threatened to “break his head” and “throw him into the wall” before the fight.
Lall also claimed that the victim called her ‘P-ki’ in court – something she never mentioned to the police.
He was angry, angry, drunk, and had a knife on him. Prosecutor Anthony Orchard QC said he was reported and then killed someone with a knife.
Lall was previously convicted for carrying a kitchen knife twice, in 2014 and 2019, and also committed domestic abuse against her mother.
He has 12 years of documented mental illness, but he claimed two years ago he stopped taking his medication to ‘get a job’.
He was unemployed at the time of his death and the driver lived on the sofa of his father’s one-bedroom apartment.
The court was told Lall had stopped taking her medication in October 2018 after being transferred from a community mental health team to her GP.
Mr Isichei, a keen jazz musician, was educated at Kilburn Grammar School in northwest London.
He was the managing director of his family business, Broadway Construction, based in nearby Ealing, which was founded in 1974 as well as a part time coach at Wasps Rugby Club.
Lall, of Vine Cottages, Southall, was cleared of murder but convicted of manslaughter by reason of diminished responsibility was detained under the mental health act with special restrictions ‘without limit of time’.
Grieving relatives of Mr Isichei, who attended each day of the trial, stood in a circle outside court in silence after sentence was passed.
In a joint victim personal statement written by Emma, Daniel and David Isichei wrote: ‘We have suffered from the tragic loss of our father, who was a kind, generous, and an inspirational man to many.
‘To see him described by his assailant as an aggressor just isn’t who he was
‘He spent his time putting others before himself and the graphic camera footage shown in court clearly shows he was the victim of someone who chose to carry a knife.
‘Why was a person with a history of carrying knives who was only arrested while carrying one in January 2019 allowed to be back out on the streets unsupervised to carry out this senseless killing?
‘As always the voice of the victim is not heard, we can no longer ask him as he has been cruelly taken away from us. A pain we feel everyday.
‘We believe something must be done, we want to see some sort of positive come out of this.
‘Authorities must answer the questions around why someone with a history of mental illness, was arrested in January for carrying a knife and was released in April with no follow up on whether they were taking the medication that could have made a difference.’
An NHS London spokesperson, said: ‘We would like to offer our condolences to the family and friends of Mr Allan Isichei.
‘We have been in contact with the family and have advised them that we are currently reviewing the case with a view to conducting an investigation in 2021.’
Detective Inspector Jamie Stevenson of the Met’s Specialist Crime, said: ‘It beggars belief that a man could go to his local pub for a quick drink on a Saturday evening and not return home, but that is the terrible reality that Allan’s family have been left with.
‘Allan was a creative and constructive man, living a full and active life through his sport and music. His loss is immeasurable, and is of course most felt by his loving family, who still grieve for him and will do so for a very long time to come.
‘There was no good reason for Lall to have had a knife in his possession that day, and no good reason for him to use it. I am glad that he has been convicted and the jury rejected his claim that he was acting in self-defence.’
