A knifeman arrested at gunpoint just yards from where Parliamentary PC Keith Palmer was killed, will be sentenced next month at Southwark crown court.
A Court heard that Eniola Mustafa Aminu, 27 from Greenwich was on “a death by cop” suicide mission.
The 27-year-old who admitted carrying a nine-inch knife at Westminster’s Carriage Gates entrance, three months after a jihadist stabbed and killed PC Keith Palmer, “wanted to die.”
Mr Aminu who will be sentenced on September 19, said he “wanted the police to shoot me, I did not want to live any more,” Prosecutor Sian Morgan revealed at the trial.
Mr Aminu’s defence, Neil Allan stated that he had mental issues, adding that: “This was not a political act. He simply wanted to die and wanted the officers to shoot him.”
