Richard Hardy a 25-year-old man from Farnborough, Hampshire was attacked and repeatedly stabbed to death over drugs.
Mr. Hardy was sadly found with multiple stab wounds on Mayfield Road, Farnborough and was announced dead at the scene.
Portsmouth Crown Court revealed Richard Hardy had run from Qasan and Hashim Siddique who he took the drugs from without paying for them.
All four of the men accused of murder deny the charges.
Nigel Lickley QC, prosecuting explained to the court how the brothers Hashim and Qasan Siddique were planning revenge and even offered to reward anyone who “smacked up” Richard Hardy prior to their attack.
In the court they heard how Luther Archibald and Leroy Bosha met Richard Hardy, who they previously contacted via mobile phones. Both of them lured Hardy into a false sense of security before he was ambushed by Omar, Hashim and Qasan.
Not long after, Richard Hardy was attacked by multiple men wielding knives, out of sight of CCTV which Mr Lickley described as a: “ferocious attack on a defenceless man.”
Mr. Lickley explained to the Jurors:
“Richard Hardy walked along unaware of what was going to happen. The other three on their bikes with their hoods up followed each other at some speed.”
“It amounted to an ambush. They dropped their bikes, disappeared from view and in a few seconds reappeared and cycled away.”
The trial has not yet concluded.
Four of the accused face charges of murder the other is charged with manslaughter:
- Leroy Bosha, 26, of Aldwick Close, Farnborough
- Hashim Siddique, 19, of Fintry Walk, Farnborough
- Qasan Siddique, 22, of Fintry Walk, Farnborough
- Omar Goodridge, 20, of Montgomery Way, Portsmouth
- Luther Archibald, 31, of Totland Close, Farnborough has not been found fit to stand trial, and the jury at Portsmouth Crown Court has been tasked to establish if he in fact was involved in the murder or not.
Multiple drug dealers and users were involved in stabbing Richard Hardy to death over a small amount of drugs in a sickening revenge attack. Law and order is out of control on the streets of the United Kingdom.
Police officers on the street must be allowed to enforce a zero-tolerance approach to violent criminals and the criminal justice system needs to be able to hand out tough sentences for heinous acts of crime like this.
