APO SIX: DANJUMA IBRAHIM AND OTHERS SEEK ACQUITAL

Ahead of the judgement of an Abuja High Court on the dastardly killing of six Igbo traders in Abuja fixed for March 9, 2017, a former Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Mr. Danjuma Ibrahim and six others have asked an Abuja High court to acquit them of the  four count charge preferred against them over alleged complicity in the killing.

The six traders killed include ;Ifeanyi Ozo, Chinedu Meniru, Isaac Ekene, Paul Ogbonna, Anthony Nwokike and Tina Arebun.

Specifically, the prosecution charged Ibrahim [1st defendant], along with Othman Abdulsalam [at large], Nicholas Zakaria, Ezekiel Acheneje, Emmanuel Baba and Sadiq Salami, 2nd to 6th defendants respectively for “agreeing to do or cause to be done an illegal act and therefore conspired amongst yourself to commit felony to wit: Culpable Homicide Punishable with death by agreeing to kill” the six Igbo traders.

In a written address filed on his behalf by his defence team led by Rickey Tarfa (SAN) including Anthony Agbonlahon, Olusegun Jolaawo and  Regina Okotie – Eboh, the Police Chief submitted that the Prosecution failed to establish against him the allegation of “criminal  conspiracy.”
