The assault alleged levied against a security guard at Banex Plaza in Abuja on the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, Mr. Danladi Umar has taken a new turn as the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Police Command has begun an investigation into the case.
Recall that the CCT Chairman was criticised days ago after he was seen in a viral video assaulting a security guard.
The force in a statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Yusuf Mariam, said the command would be fair and professional in the conduct of its investigation.
Part of the statement read: “Following the incident of alleged assault involving the CCT Chairman and a security guard that took place at Bannex Plaza on Monday March 29th,2021, the command wishes to state categorically that discreet investigation is still ongoing.
“Hence, the Commissioner of Police CP Bala Ciroma wishes to reassure members of the public that the command will be professional, fair and thorough in its investigation.”
The command appealed to residents to remain calm and allow the law to take its course.
