The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, on Wednesday, decorated Ibrahim Danjuma with his new rank of Commissioner of Police after he had been prosecuted and acquitted for the extrajudicial killing of five Abuja traders and a lady in 2005, a report Thursday morning by The PUNCH said.

“Danjuma was among 15 new CPs recently promoted by the Police Service Commission on the recommendation of the IG,” the paper recalled, adding:

“He had been suspended from duty on account of the alleged extrajudicial killing and was subsequently charged to court alongside Othman Abdulsalam, Nicholas Zakaria, Baba Emmanuel, Ezekiel Acheneje and Sadiq Salami as co-defendants for felony.

“The trial Judge, Justice Ishaq Bello, of the FCT High Court found Danjuma, who was the first accused person, not guilty and accordingly discharged and acquitted him while Emmanuel and Acheneje were sentenced to death.”
