The 14-year-old student who stabbed his Nigerian teacher, Vincent Uzomah in front of his classmates in the UK, has been jailed for eleven years.

Vincent(pictured), a science teacher at Dixons Kings Academy was stabbed with kitchen knife by a pupil, Yusaf Khan, on June 12, 2015 in a racially motivated attack.

Leading to the attack, the 50-year-old teacher had confiscated the teenager’s phone for using it to distract the class.

Handing down judgment yesterday, the Judge, Jonathan Durham Hall QC sentenced Khan to an extended sentence which includes six years custody and a further five years on licence. Current prison rules mean he could serve half of the six years behind bars.

The judge said: ‘What you have done is utterly shocking, deliberately, callously stabbing him.’

He said: ‘You went to your school armed with a knife with a significant blade intending, when the opportunity presented, to stab your teacher Vincent Uzomah.

‘You boasted about it before, you boasted about it after when you had stabbed him.’

The convict had immediately bragged about his unholy action on facebook page after fleeing the scene of the crime.

‘The motherf***** getin funny so I stick the blade straight in his tummy,’ he posted after he stabbed and left his victim, Vincent Uzomah in a pool of blood.
