The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has declared that it will investigate the attack scandal involving Danladi Yakubu Umar, Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

 

In a viral video, the CCT Chairman was seen beating a security guard at Banex Plaza in Wuse, Abuja. This sparked uproar on social media.

 

According to a statement issued by NBA spokesman Dr. Rapulu Nduka on Thursday, April 1, the NBA will pursue an investigation to decide if Umar’s behaviour was unbecoming of a member of the legal profession.

 

The group added that it will  “ensure that appropriate action is taken to address this occurrence.”

 

The statement read;

 

“The attention of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has been drawn to the video making the rounds where the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) – Danladi Yakubu Umar Esq., was seen, together with his security detail, allegedly assaulting a citizen at Banex Plaza, in Wuse Abuja.

“We understand that this citizen turned out to be a 22-year-old employee of Jul Reliable Guards Services Ltd, posted as a security guard to the Plaza and who is now reportedly hospitalised.

“The NBA has also read the statement credited to the Head, Press and Public Relations of the CCT in response to the actions of Mr Umar.

“The NBA frowns at any display of naked power by a public officer especially one who, by virtue of his high office, is expected to exhibit a high standard of conduct.”
