CCT Spokesperson Removed After Statement On Assault By Chairman

Published

on

The spokesperson of Code of Conduct Tribunal, Ibraheem Alhassan, has been replaced after issuing a controversial statement on an alleged assault involving his boss, Danladi Umar.

Danladi Umar, chairman of the CCT, was caught on video physically assaulting a security man at Banex Plaza, Wuse 2, Abuja.

But in an attempt to explain what transpired before the incident, the tribunal issued a statement signed by Ibraheem Al-Hassan, CCT spokesperson, which contained grammatical blunders and ethnic slurs.

Some of the grammatical errors are “video cliff” instead of “video clip”; “packing lot” instead of “parking lot”; “rode” instead of “rude”; “fixe” instead of “fix”.

The statement added that the mob that attacked his boss consisted of “BIAFRAN boys throwing matches and shape object to his car, which led to deep cut and dislocation in one of his fingers, causing damage to his car, smashing his windscreen”.

When this led to a backlash, Alhassan said that he was instructed by his boss to include that Biafran boys attacked him.

Though his boss later confirmed this, many Nigerians expressed displeasure over the ethnic slur.

Chief Registrar of the CCT, Abdumalik Shaibu, confirmed to TheCable that Alhassan had been recalled by the Ministry of Information.

Shaibu confirmed that a replacement for Alhassan has already been sent to the tribunal.

The Chief Registrar was quoted as saying, “It is true. He was posted to us from there in the first place.

“I got the news that he has been recalled but there is no official letter yet from the ministry.

“I was told there is an official letter but we are still waiting for it. A replacement came in last week Friday, and Ibrahim came to introduce him to us.

“We are hoping an official letter will coming this week so that the new person can resume fully.”

Video of how job seeker Iniubong Umoren was killed by Uduak Frank Akpan has emerged.

Uduak Frank Akpan, the suspected killer of a job seeker, Iniubong Umoren has confessed how he killed his victim while being paraded by the Akwa Ibom State Police Command.

Serial killer Uduak Frank Akpan,  was paraded by the Akwa Ibom State Police Command to dismiss rumour of his death in custody, JomogNews Nigeria reports.

Uduak Frank Akpan who was paraded alongside his father said he killed Iniubong Umoren in self-defense and not intentionally.

His words: “I invited her for a job and I asked her whether she can work in a farm as secretary.

“I told her that I wanted to sleep with her first. She agreed on a condition that I will use condom which I also agreed to. She became furious when I started removing the condom, and she attacked me.

“I was bleeding so I needed to defend myself by hitting her which lead to her death,” he said.

However, Andrew Amiengheme, the Akwa Ibom State Police Commissioner, said it was necessary to have the press conference because of the rumour that was going around in the media that the suspect had committed suicide in the cell.

“I don’t know anywhere in the world that a suspect will be allowed to use trousers in the cell to the extent of killing himself with it.

“Social media that is supposed to be a tool that will work to the advantage of the police has become something that is working against them,” he said.
