A violent murderer who butchered a man outside a Harrow Tube station last year was today sentenced to more than 16 years in prison.
Ferenc Ifi, of Hazel Grove, Wembley, bludgeoned his victim with a knife and hammer after throwing chemicals in his eyes in March.
The 37-year-old already knew his victim, Tamas Bujko, and came after him after he made an allegation to the Police about an assault in 2007.
Mr Bujko was outside Sudbury Hill Tube Station on March 21, when Ifi, dressed in a face mask and wearing gloves threw potassium hydroxide into his face.
He then attacked the 45-year-old with the knife and hammer in a pre-meditated attack.
The incident was witnessed by several people who called the police and Ifi was detained a short distance from the scene, still wearing the mask and carrying two knives and a hammer. A bag was found near by containing the chemical and plastic protective gloves.
Mr Bujko was taken to Northwick Park Hospital but died shortly after.
Ifi pleaded guilty to the attack at The Old Bailey today and was ordered to 16 years and two months in jail.
DI Martin Ludlow, who led the investigation for MPS Homicide and Serious Crime Command said:"This was a horrific attack intended to kill in a most violent and painful way.
"Ifi has shown no remorse for his actions.
"Mr Bujko was a powerful man, a judo champion and Ifi armed himself for this planned attack to ensure that he could overcome Mr Bujko.
"There can be no possible justification for an attack such as this, I am grateful that Ifi has admitted this most terrible of crimes and he is being held accountable for his actions.
" Mr Bujko leaves a wife and daughter and I only hope that this conviction goes some way to assisting them in coming to terms with what has happened."
