Two men have been jailed for robbing a betting shop in Kilburn.

Michael Okadigbo, 27, and 21-year-old Adisa Sabado made off with more than £2,000 after targeting William Hill in Kilburn High Road, on September 29 last year.

The pair walked into the branch and threatened counter staff before fleeing with the cash

Days earlier on September 7, Okadigbo stole more than £2,750 after carrying out an identical robbery at a William Hill branch in Palmers Green, north London.

He stole over £2,750 from counter staff.

Both men were traced through CCTV footage.

Sabado, from Croydon, south London, admitted one count of robbery during a court appearance in January.

In March, Okadigbo from Islington, north London, pleaded guilty to two counts of robbery.

Sabado was acquitted of taking part in the robbery in Palmers Green.

Yesterday (Tuesday), Okadigbo was sentenced to four years and Sabado to 20 months at Harrow Crown Court.
