Mr. Gomoh, who worked in supply and procurement for the NHS, suffered catastrophic injuries in the attack on Freemasons Road. He managed to get to his feet and stumble the short distance home, the jury was told.
He finally bled out in front of his family.
In the seconds before the attack, Mr. Gomoh had been on the phone with his girlfriend.
They told the court that he heard someone ask, “Where are you from?”, Followed by the sounds of a fight.
Prosecutor Oliver Glasgow QC said Gomoh was chosen because he “had the misfortune to live in an area of London frequented by rival gangs”.
He described them as “rival gangs who are involved in a violent fight with each other, rival gangs who like to attack each other and rival gangs who like to show off the devastation they have caused.”
Cambridge’s Mr. Jalloh, Mr. Ture and Mr. Colubali, both without a fixed address, also deny conspiracy to cause GBH in connection with an earlier incident.
The trial continues.
