Facebook Twitter YouTube Instagram.As soon as the dark blue Ford Mondeo pulled to a stop on Gordon Road that night, the year-old boy standing at the side of the street knew he had made a mistake.

He had been tricked into the rendezvous by an acquaintance. Driving the car was Isaac Donkoh, 21, a local rapper who also ran a gang in the Beckton E6 postcode area, a dreary neighbourhood in the east of London. It is best-known for being the home of the world's largest gasworks.

Donkoh's crew that night consisted of four teenagers — two other year-olds and two year-olds. Donkoh and his colleagues got out of the car, and forced the year-old into the vehicle. Once inside they threatened him with a machete and tied two plastic bags over his head.

Over the next two hours, Donkoh and the others stripped the boy naked, beat him with a pole, cut him with scissors, forced him to swallow cannabis, and scalded his head and feet with boiling water. The gang filmed the whole thing on an iPhone. In April of this year, London Metropolitan police used it to secure convictions and prison sentences against all four young men. The police were particularly interested in Donkoh's nascent career on the "UK drill" rap music scene.

The Donkoh torture case — and the drill music linked to it — is not an isolated incident. YouTube has removed rap videos from its platform at the request of London police, who allege that the videos are weapons in a gang war that has led to hundreds of stabbings across the city in the last couple of years. At least 20 convictions have been made in the Metropolitan Police's "Operation Domain" investigation of rap gangs, all leading to convictions.

Eighteen received prison sentences. The police told Business Insider that they are currently tracking more than 2, music videos in their database. Two professional rappers, who go by the name Skengdo x AM, are now banned by a court-sanctioned "criminal behaviour order" from making music, performing songs, or publishing music videos without the approval of the police. They received nine-month suspended prison sentences in January for an unauthorised performance of their music.

A further 11 less well-known rappers in groups linked to the and W12 gangs are also banned from performing without police permission. We work with the Metropolitan Police, The Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime, the Home Office, and community groups to understand this issue and ensure we are able to take action on gang-related content that infringe our Community Guidelines or break the law," a spokesperson said.

The music bans raise obvious issues around censorship, free speech and creativity: Should the police have the power to ban the mere performance or publication of music? Is YouTube right to cooperate? From the police point of view, Operation Domain is a straightforward law enforcement action. The scale of London's gang wars is terrifying: In the year ending in March — the most recent numbers the Met has published — there were 4, stabbings. The previous year there were 4, There were homicides of all types in the most recent year, an indicator that stabbings tend to leave their victims alive.

There were more than 1, stabbings in London, and 80 murders, in the first six months of alone, according to a Sky News investigation. The conflicts are conducted between dozens of tiny postcode-based crews. It's not a "war" as such. More like a chaotic free-for-all, conducted in continuous fits and starts. The police say that they are simply responding to criminal threats and incitement. The fact that the threats rhyme and are delivered via slick videos on YouTube makes no difference, police say.

They can include gestures of violence, with hand signals suggesting they are firing weapons and graphic descriptions of what they would do to each other," superintendent West said. Drill was invented in Chicago sometime around But it has been taken to another level entirely in London.

UK drill is characterised by slow, ominous beats with a cinematically gloomy melody looped on top. Rappers deliver their lyrics rapid-fire, in strong London accents.

An investigation was launched by officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command and Awais was identified as driving the vehicle by another man. Awais was identified by a witness at an ID parade and was further linked to the crime by forensic evidence.

Awais, 28, pleaded guilty to rape, assault by penetration, kidnap, robbery, driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance at Snaresbrook Crown Court last year.

En masse, the group launched a ferocious attack, punching and kicking the victim for a sustained period.

A group of people who had left a nearby club attempted to intervene to stop the attack with one of them - a man in his 20s - filming the assault. The suspect group took exception to this and attacked the man, kicking him to the ground and they attempted to steal his phone. During this, Huseyin Onel - a member of the suspect group - entered one of the cars and was seen to exit a couple of seconds later carrying a white bottle.

On realising the escalation of events, a number of the victim's group began to run from the scene but Onel calmly targeted them, spraying liquid at their faces as they attempted to flee.

Other members of the group - Mehmet Tekagac and Ardic - were also involved in the corrosive substance attack on one of the group. Meanwhile, the vicious assault continued on the victim who had filmed the initial assault and only ended when a bag containing his phone had been ripped from him. The suspects then got into three cars and drove from the scene, shouting homophobic comments at members of the group, and that they 'run Hackney'.

Officers from Hackney, working alongside a crime scene examiner CSEattended the scene and began to collate evidence and secure CCTV that captured the vast majority of the brutal attacks. They were assisted by the CSE and Met's Fingerprint Bureau, who were able to confirm which suspects had been holding the white bottle containing the noxious substance, and who had been attacking the unknown victim, which helped strengthen the case that secured convictions.

In these testing times, your support is more important than ever.The victim was driven with a bag over his head before two hours of violence and humiliation. The vile details of how a gang member and drill artist kidnapped a year-old boy and tortured him have been revealed. Isaac Donkoh and four other teenagers, aged just 16 and 14, put a bag over their victim's head and drove him where he was forced to strip naked, hit with a metal pole, forced to swallow a cannabis joint, kicked in the face and threatened with scissors.

The victim thought he was going to die. And much of this shocking incident was filmed on Donkoh's phone. Donkoh, 22, used his drill music videos to goad rivals and recruit boys as young as 14 to commit serious violence. Along with his accomplices, two year-old and two 14 year-old boys, he has been jailed for and-a-half years - but his victim may suffer the effects of his crimes for longer than that.

On a summer night last year, Donkoh and his recruits suggested they meet the victim in Gordon Road, Barking August 2. The victim turned up as agreed and a short time later a dark blue Ford Mondeo pulled up, with Donkoh driving and the four other youths in the passenger seats.

The victim was punched in the head and body and ordered into the vehicle. He was threatened with a machete and, once in the car, two plastic bags were put over his head and secured with an elastic band. In evidence, the victim stated that at this point, "I thought they were probably gonna kill me.

On arrival, Donkoh told the victim that the gang were in possession of a gun and two knives. The victim was held for approximately two hours at the address and subjected to a violent and humiliating ordeal. He was forced to strip naked whilst Donkoh filmed him on his iPhone and threatened to 'cut him up' if he did not do so.

The men hit him with a metal pole over his face, back, legs and arms and his hair was forcibly cut with scissors, during which time he was slapped in the face, forced to kneel and kicked hard in the head. Donkoh tried to pour boiling water over the victim's head, resulting in scalding the victim's feet, causing serious injury.

The victim tried removing his socks but Donkoh would not allow him to. He was also forced to swallow a cannabis joint, kicked in the face and threatened with scissors, all incidents which Donkoh filmed on his phone. A bag was then placed back over the victim's head and he was ordered not to speak to police.

He was taken back out to the car and released not far from where he had been kidnapped. An investigation was launched by the Trident and Area Crime Command, and along with local officers from the gangs unit quickly identified Donkoh and his accomplices. One of the year-old defendants kept the victim's iPhone and on arrest, sought to conceal the offences from police by telling them that he had found the phone in the street.

Whilst the physical scars of that night have started to heal, I believe the psychological impact on the victim has been lasting. I believe that removing Donkoh from the streets of Newham has done a great deal to reduce serious violence in the borough, as we identified a direct correlation between his drill videos which glorified violence and shootings and stabbings on the streets.

All five defendants pleaded or were found guilty of kidnap, false imprisonment, GBH and a number of other offences.
