Knife-point robbers who live-streamed a high-speed police chase through Dartford which ended in their arrests have been jailed.

Effiong Nsa, 19, and Salah Ibrahim, 20, robbed a man on January 15, before getaway driver Shamil Ibrahim drove them from the scene, filming as police pursued.

The trio were sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court to more than nine years’ imprisonment on September 7.

Their spree began at around 2pm, when the trio ambushed their victim, who been driven by a friend to meet Salah Ibrahim alone near Knights Manor Way.

Upon arrival, he found that Ibrahim was joined by Sunny Reeve and Nsa, who pulled out a machete and told him to “give me everything you got.”

The victim attempted to run away but was chased by the trio, who grabbed his coat and pulled him to the floor. He handed over £20 to Salah Ibrahim.

He then returned to his friend’s vehicle, but before they could get away Nsa approached the driver and threatened her with the same weapon.

She refused to hand over her keys and phone and the offenders ran away towards a silver BMW 316.

The incident was seen by several witnesses and police immediately sent patrols to the scene, who located the suspect's BMW nearby.

It was being driven by Shamil Ibrahim, 21, with the other three passengers inside, and failed to stop when requested to do so.

A pursuit then took place, during which the vehicle was driven at highspeed across Dartford, Swanscombe and Northfleet, skipping red lights, driving towards oncoming trafic, and heading the wrong way around a roundabout.

Salah Ibrahim live-streamed the offending on a social media account belonging to him, encouraging others to get involved. 

Officers were eventually able to bring the getaway car to a controlled stop on the A2 coastbound, trapping it on the road.

Effiong Nsa and both Ibrahims were pulled from the car.

Co-offender Sunny Reeve was arrested elsewhere in Dartford on the same afternoon.

Nsa, 19, of Gouge Avenue, Gravesend, admitted two counts of robbery, attempted robbery and possessing an offensive weapon. He was sentenced to four years and two months’ imprisonment.

Salah Ibrahim, 20, of Virginia Walk, Gravesend, admitted robbery. He was sentenced to two years and eight months’ imprisonment.

Reeve, 23, of Knights Manor Way, Dartford, admitted one count of robbery. He was sentenced to two years and four months’ imprisonment.

Shamil Ibrahim, 21, of Virginia Walk, Gravesend, admitted dangerous driving. He was sentenced to four months’ imprisonment, suspended for a year, at Woolwich Crown Court on 5 May.

He was also ordered to complete 150 hours of unpaid work and banned from driving for 18 months.

Detective Constable Kelly-Ann Tindall, Kent Police’s investigating officer for the case, said: "Countless members of the public were endangered during the pursuit and our officers did an outstanding job to safely bring them to a controlled stop.

"There can’t be any tolerance towards any individuals who are willing to use violence or show such an extreme disregard for innocent members of the public.

"From the outset, we took the most robust course of action by remanding them in custody and I am pleased that our investigation has now led to the robbers facing a prison sentence."
