British Soldier Killer, Adebolajo Appeals Against Life Sentence!

One of the two men convicted for the murder of Lee Rigby, a British soldier has filed an appeal against his sentence.

Michael Adebolajo who got a whole-life sentence for the murder of the soldier has appealed against the ruling.

Adebolajo, 29, together with Michael Adebowale, 22, drove into Fusilier Rigby with a car before hacking him to death in Woolwich, south-east London.

While sentencing the duo, Justice Sweeney said Adebolajo’s was a “rare case” which warranted a whole-life term.

The judge held that both men who are Muslim converts “butchered” the 25-year-old soldier.

Adebolajo from Romford, East London however denied murder, and described the killing as a “military operation”, as he claimed that he was a “soldier of Allah”.

Michael Adebowale from Greenwich, South-east London, received a life sentence but has to spend a minimum of 45 years in prison.
