CCT chairman: Abuja mob that attacked me chanted secessionist slogans

Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Danladi Umar has stated that he was attacked in Abuja by a mob that was “chanting secessionist and sectional slogan”.

Speaking on the incident, the CCT chairman, Umar told newsmen that the assault saga involving him at a popular plaza in the nation’s capital has left him traumatised and disappointed.

Recall that the CCT chairman was caught on video hitting a security man who had told him his vehicle was parked in the wrong space at a popular plaza in Abuja.

In his defence, Ibraheem Al-Hassan, CCT spokesperson, said the guard was rude and could not provide a reasonable explanation why Umar should not park in the said space.

The CCT chairman, Umar in an interview with PRNigeria said: “As part of my routine activities outside the office and official duties, like any regular Nigerian, I always drive myself and move around freely to places of worship, markets and gyms, among others, without any paraphernalia of office.

“I enjoy such freedom being a believer that one day one would leave whatever office one occupies and returning to living the normal life.

“Therefore, when I was accosted by the Plaza guard in a very rude manner on arriving there, I had maintained my accustomed decorum before I was drawn into an unnecessary altercation and subsequently assaulted, with this degenerating into an attack and injury by a mob that was chanting secessionist and sectional slogans.”
