Aminur Nadir Khan, 20, Ali Akbar Choudhury, 20 and Mashudur Rahman, 22, will serve a minimum of 23 years for the murder of Ajmol Alom.
During sentencing Judge Judge Martyn Zeidman said: "This knife madness must end. There has to be a change. But cold figures can never sufficiently reflect the tragic sorrow caused by knife crime. In our case there were two totally unprovoked attacks upon 16-year-old boys."
He added: "The first stabbing was to Rob's face but that did not quench your joint thirst for violence. Within a minute or so you were each a party to the second attack, this time upon Ajmol Alom. You each played a part in bringing his life to an end."
Three men were today sentenced for 23 years each for the murder Ajmol Alom. The 16-year-old was stabbed with a knife in an unprovoked attack in east London on 12 August 2013.
The three men sentenced are Aminur Nazir Khan, 20, from Robin Hood Gardens; Mashudur Rahman, 22, from E15 and Ali Choudhury, 20, from E14.
