Assault: Danladi Umar asked me to use ‘Biafran boys’ in his response – CCT spokesperson
Spokesperson of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Ibraheem Al-Hassan has disclosed that his principal, Danladi Umar asked him to use Biafran boys in the statement.
This disclosure was made by the CCT chairman in an interview with ICIR.
He also disclosed that he wrote the statement defending his boss, Danladi Umar over the assault case against him under intense pressure.
Recall that Danladi Umar, the CCT Boss was caught on camera beating a security man when he visited a popular plaza in Abuja.
The statement which was issued by Al-Hassan in defence of the CCT Chairman after the video of the assault had gone viral was a complete ridicule of the English language.
Grammatical errors such as “video cliff” instead of “video clip”; “packing lot” instead of “parking lot”; “rode” instead of “rude”; “fixe” instead of “fix” littered the statement.
According to the ICIR, Al-Hassan said the CCT was considering disowning the statement because of the controversy it has generated.
“He revealed that his boss instructed him to use ‘Biafran boys’ in the statement … the PRO said he later realised his mistake,” the media house wrote of the interview.
It further quoted the CCT spokesman to have said: “There’s a problem with that statement. In fact, we are about disowning it. We want to retract the content because it was written under intense pressure. I must confess to you, that is why there are many structural imbalances, language structure not being perfect and, again, some of the expressions used. I acted on instruction.
“Now as I am speaking with you, I’m in my ministry. My ministry has summoned me for that statement. My minister, so to say, through my director. So, I should be given some time to get this problem solved.”
“All the grammatical errors and what have you were not noted. I did not proofread it, I was in the car when I composed it with my android (phone).”
