Total pandemonium broke out at an Abuja shopping mall after Danladi Umar, the chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), and his driver brutally assaulted a security guard at Banex plaza at Wuse 2 in Abuja on Monday, 29th March 2021.
A viral video of the CCT chairman assaulting the security man has since been circulating in the media. Many of the eyewitnesses condemned the assault and called for justice
The incident has caused outrage as to why the head of Code of Conduct Tribunal, a court judge, who adjudicates matters concerning the conduct of public servants, could not conduct himself in proper manner but resorted to taking the law into his hands.
In the video, Umar was seen speaking angrily, scolding and shouting at the security man. He quickly followed up with barrage of blows on the youngman and violently kicked him before he was restrained by the crowd, including some policemen attached to him.
He was then forced into his vehicle by the policemen. The action, however, did not go well with the onlookers who felt Umar mistreated the security guard.
They suddenly became aggressive and started hurling stones at vehicles in the CCT chairman’s convoy, smashing their windscreens and windows.
