Wokoh, 24, ploughed into revellers outside a Mekan bar in Catford, London
He had been in a fight with a man earlier in the evening and became 'enraged'
But no victim ever came forward and police used CCTV to conduct inquiries

A man who 'used his car as a deadly weapon' to run down late night revellers standing on the pavement has been jailed for eight years.

Shaquille Wokoh, 24, of Croydon, ploughed into pedestrians outside Mekan Bar & Restaurant in Catford, south east London, after getting into a fight at the venue earlier in the night.

The crash was caught on CCTV which was used to launch the investigation because no victim ever came forward despite the footage clearly showing a man lying hurt on the ground.

Wokoh was found guilty of attempted grievous bodily harm (GBH) with intent, dangerous driving and assault by beating at a trial in February.

He was sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court today with six years imposed for GBH, 18 months for dangerous driving; and, three months for assault by beating - all to run concurrently.

PC Gary Sanders Gary, from Lewisham Borough, said: 'This was a deliberate use of a car as a deadly weapon. It was only by luck that no one was killed or suffered serious injuries.

'Wokoh was clearly enraged that night and in the heat of the moment launched an attack against those responsible.

'As a result of the investigation, Wokoh was found to have accrued thousands of pounds by criminal activity; forensic tests of the money we recovered showed abnormally high traces of heroin.
