In a video published by SaharaReporters, the power-drunk CCT Chairman was seen brutalizing the security guard before he was restrained by the crowd, including police officers attached to him.
An eyewitness said the security guard was slapped, kicked, pulled down and inflicted with injuries simply because he told Umar to park his car very well at the plaza.
“The CCT chairman was on the verge of further hitting the young security guard with a dangerous object taken from his car, when passersby and tenants at Banex plaza, intervened and stopped him from further assaulting and violently attacking the young security guard,” the eyewitness said.
The action didn’t go well with people who suddenly became aggressive and started stoning the vehicles in the CCT chairman’s convoy, smashing their windscreens and windows.
Consequently, the legal services of Abuja-based legal practitioner, Ihensekhien Samuel Jnr, was sought to internene in the matter..
He swiftly intervened and made legal representation at the Maitama Police Station under the Federal Capital Territory Police Command where Umar had gone to lodge a false complaint against the security guard.
The Divisional Police Officer at Maitama where the complaint was lodged, on seeing the video recordings of the atrocious and violent attack by Umar on the young security guard, swiftly ordered the prompt release of the young security guard on bail.
The counsel for the assaulted security guard, Ihensekhien Samuel, said steps would be taken to promptly sue and prosecute Justice Danladi Umar.
“This is a breach of extant provisions of judicial code of any arbiter, and the height of impunity of any kind,” Samuel said, assuring that the young security guard would get justice.
