Michael Adebolajo Gets Life Jail Term For Lee Rigby Murder


Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale

Violence broke out in court on Wednesday as Michael Adebolajo was sentenced to die in prison by a judge who found he had led the terrorist attack that saw the British soldier Lee Rigby “butchered” in the street.

Adebolajo, 29, was given a whole-life tariff while his accomplice Michael Adebowale, 22, who joined in “enthusiastically”, was sentenced to life in prison with a 45-year minimum term.

The pair fought with security guards before they were sentenced and were bundled out of the dock at the Old Bailey in central London.
