A man who murdered a bikie chief by shooting at him at point blank range in broad daylight in front of frightened onlookers has been sentenced to at least 20 years jail.

Tarek Abdallah, 28, was found guilty by a jury in March of murdering Lone Wolf motorcycle gang member Neal Todorovski in the southern Sydney suburb of Sans Souci on January 4, 2012.

He was found not guilty of shooting with intent to murder Mr Todorovski's associate John Haper Ledger.

Neal Todorovski was gunned down in January 2012.

He had pleaded not guilty to both offences on the basis he had acted in self-defence.

In sentencing Abdallah to a maximum of 26 years years and eight months on Friday, Justice Stephen Campbell said he did not act in self defence but acted "purely in retaliation".

Evidence presented during the trial showed Mr Todorovski was shot six times, three of which caused his death.

Justice Campbell said after receiving the first shot, Mr Todorovski turned to flee with his two henchman, Ledger and Matthew Edward Lewis.

As the injured man fell to the ground, Abdallah continued to fire, including at point blank range at Mr Todorovski's head.

Abdallah had been convicted of kidnapping a man in New Zealand in 2006, and Justice Campbell said when combined with the murder of Mr Todorovski, it showed he had a history of "seeking to settle disputes by taking the law into his own hands" has "disregard for the law".

However in sentencing Abdallah, he accepted there was a degree of provocation by Mr Todorovski in sending out Lewis and Leger to meet Abdallah outside the Sans Souci unit block.

Lewis and Leger have previously been found guilty of contempt of court and jailed for refusing to cooperate.

As the crime occurred in the daytime during a holiday period in a residential area meant there was a high level of public danger, Justice Campbell said. A number of people, including a mother and her child, witnessed the murder.

Abdallah has been in custody since he was arrested in Western Australia on January 12, 2012. He will be eligible for parole on January 11, 2032.

As he was taken down to the cells, Abdallah's supporters called out "we love you Tarek".

Outside the court, one of Abdallah's relatives said they maintain he acted in self-defence.

"The Abdallah family is extremely upset with the sentence and we will be appealing".
