Abuja Mob That Attacked Me Chanted Secessionist Slogans - CCT Chairman

Published by Nairaland on Sun, 04 Apr 2021

<blockquote>JUST IN: The Abuja mob that attacked me chanted secessionist slogans, says CCT chairman<br><br>Danladi Umar, chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), says he was attacked in Abuja by a mob that was chanting secessionist and sectional slogan.<br><br><br>Umar told PRNigeria that the assault saga involving him at a popular plaza in the nations capital has left him traumatised and disappointed.<br><br>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.<br><br>In his defence, Ibraheem Al-Hassan, CCT spokesperson, said the guard was rude and that some Biafran boys also harassed his boss.<br><br>He also said it was Umar that asked him to Biafran boys to describe the moba description which Femi Falana, human rights lawyer, said could land the CCT chairman in jail.<br><br>In an interview with PRNigeria, Umar insisted that those who confronted and assaulted him at the plaza were secessionists.<br><br>He 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.<br><br>I enjoy such freedom being a believer that one day one would leave whatever office one occupies and returning to living the normal life.<br><br>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.<br><br>He further said the viral video of the incident did not capture where he was being assaulted.<br><br>He said he has been traumatised after being bruised and treated in the hospital and regrets being drawn into responding to the situation.<br><br>This makes me both upset at being cast in a distorted and unfortunate light, while I also have cause to feel deep pains for subsequent response and controversies, the CCT chairman added.<br><br>All said, with an apology tendered to me by one of the suspected aggressors, I believe that the entire incident was avoidable, just as I feel highly disappointed that my action in the public glare in a very brief moment has been misconstrued in the narrative floating across social media.</blockquote><a rel=ugc href="https://thecable.ng/just-in-the-abuja-mob-that-attacked-me-chanted-secessionist-slogans-says-cct-chairman">https://thecable.ng/just-in-the-abuja-mob-that-attacked-me-chanted-secessionist-slogans-says-cct-chairman</a>
