The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has said it would investigate the assault of a security guard by the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Danladi Yakubu Umar.
Umar was on Tuesday caught on camera physically assaulting a security guard at Banex Plaza in Wuse, Abuja.
In a five-minute video that has gone viral online, the CCT boss was seen slapping and kicking the yet-to-be-identified security guard, while police officers suspected to be attached to him were trying to restrain him.
The NBA in a statement issued by its spokesman, Dr. Rapulu Nduka, said the association was taking action to determine whether Umar’s conduct was unbecoming of a member of the legal profession.
He said NBA relevant committee would probe the circumstances leading to the altercation, and, depending on its findings, “ensure that appropriate action is taken to address the occurrence.
