Danladi Umar, Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), has finally reacted after he was captured assaulting a security staff at a plaza in Wuse, Abuja.

In a statement made available to our news room by
Ibraheem Al-Hassan, Head, Press & Public Relations, CCT HQ, said he was first attacked by Biafran miscreants.

He noted that the said plaza has been his usual place of visits for the past 18 years for shopping and repairs of his phones, and in all these periods there has never been any time he had any turmoil with anybody.

He said trouble started “over a packing lot, which Chairman met vacant and it was directly opposite a shop he want to make a purchase and to fix his phone, when the young Security guard sighted him, he ordered that Chairman not to pack his car in that particular empty space, but Chairman asked why, the security guard couldn’t convince chairman, though Chairman didn’t identify himself, because to him it’s needless and it is a place he visits often, but the boy was rude in his approached and threaten to deal with Chairman if he refuse to leave the scene.”

The statement reads,

“Our attention was drawn to a report from some online publication with a video clip suggesting Hon Chairman, Justice Danladi Y. Umar assaulted a Security Guard at Banex Plaza.”

“To start with, the said plaza has been his usual place of visits for the past 18 years for shopping and repairs of his phones, and in all these periods there has never been any time he had any turmoil with anybody.”

“Unfortunately, yesterday’s altercations started over a packing lot, which Chairman met vacant and it was directly opposite a shop he want to make a purchase and to fix his phone, when the young Security guard sighted him, he ordered that Chairman should not pack his car in that particular empty space, but Chairman asked why, the security guard couldn’t convince chairman, though Chairman didn’t identify himself, because to him it’s needless and it is a place he visits often, but the boy was rude in his approached and threaten to deal with Chairman if he refuse to leave the scene.”

“Again, if Chairman had went there to cause trouble or intimidate someone, as suggested in the report, he would have gone there in his full official paraphernalia, but he went there alone with his younger brother.”

“The Police men seen in the video clip were not the Chairman’s police team, they were policemen operating around the plaza whom at first instance intervened before the arrival of police team from Maitama Police station. As the few policemen in the complex were apparently overwhelmed by the mobs, consisting of BIAFRAN boys throwing matchets and sharp objects to his car, which led to deep cut and dislocation in one of his fingers, causing damage to his car, smashing his windscreen.”

“At a point he attempted to leave the scene, these same miscreants, BIAFRAN boy ordered for the closure of the gate thereby assaulting him before the arrival of police team from Maitama police station.”

“An incident like this when it happened, sympathy usually goes to the low personalities. Though it’s unfortunate as I said, it ought not to have happened.”
