Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) Chairman, Danladi Umar assaults Security Guard

The Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Justice Danladi Umar was caught in a video physically assaulting a security guard at Banex Plaza at Wuse in Abuja

Umar allegedly assaulted the guard when asked to park his vehicle properly so as not to obstruct other road users.

In a five-minute video that has gone viral online, Mr Danlandi was seen slapping and kicking the yet-to-be-identified security guard, while police officers suspected to be attached to him were trying to restrain him from attacking the guard.

The crowd around the scene was heard shouting “Go away, go away, oga go inside your car, respect yourself.
A plastic bottle was seen hauled at his vehicle while the policemen were struggling to calm Mr Danlandi.

The voice from the person filming the scene was heard saying “You are not the most powerful person here, they will beat you here”.

The voice also said in the video clip that the mirror of Mr Danladi’s black sport utility vehicle SUV was smashed.
The CCT chairman was eventually pulled back into his vehicle by the policemen.

But as the vehicle was leaving the premises, the gate was shut.

The vehicle, which had others in its front, was trying to find its way out of the premises when the video ended.
‘CCT chairman didn’t assault guard’
When contacted,, the head of CCT’s media relation, Ibraheem Al-Hassan, said Mr Danladi did not assault the guard, ”but was the one assaulted during the altercation” that ensued over parking space on the premises of the shopping plaza.

He also said the policemen seen in the video clip were not Mr Danladi’s security details but “the policemen in the neighbourhood who came to rescue him”.

“The chairman only went to the plaza with his driver. And if not for the intervention of the policemen from the neighbourhood and also from Maitama Police Station, he could have been lynched,” he added.
