21-year-old Mohammed Abdul has been imprisoned for driving a stolen 4×4 at a nightclub and smashing it through an outdoor marquee and onto a dance floor, injuring ten.
Abdul was sentenced to 28 years at Maidstone Crown Court for two counts of attempting to murder multiple people at the nightclub on Queen Street, Gravesend.
He became aggressive with the bouncers as they ejected him, vowing he would return to “shut down” the venue and kill them.
CCTV shows Abdul, who was “enraged” and “felt humiliated” by the incident, attempting to do exactly that around ten minutes later, driving a stolen Suzuki Vitara down an alleyway at the bouncers at speed and carrying on to smash directly into the club’s packed dance floor marquee.
“The idea of a vehicle being driven at people evokes very significant emotions in today’s climate and it is a miracle no-one died as a result of Abdul driving a 4×4 into the marque,” he added.
