Alleged Assault: CCT Boss Danladi Umar Gets June 7 Date For Probe
The Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions, Tuesday evening summoned the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Danladi Umar, to appear before the committee on the 7th of June 2020.
The committee had earlier granted the CCT chairman a two weeks grace period to respond to a petition levelled against him over an alleged assault of one Mr Clement Sagwak, a security guard at a shopping plaza in Abuja.
Legal counsel to the Code of conduct tribunal explained that the CCT Chairman will not appear before the committee panel due to ill health and sought the lawmakers’ permission to represent him.
The committee then extended the public hearing on the matter by another 3 weeks, insisting on his being present in person.
