    The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has condemned the assault on a security guard by Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Danladi Umar.

    The victim, an employee of Jul Reliable Guards Services Limited, works at the Banex Plaza in Wuse 2, Abuja.

    Rapulu Nduka, NBA Publicity Secretary, in a reaction on Thursday, said the body read the statement credited to the CCT spokesman, Ibraheem Al-Hassan.

    The NBA condemned the “display of naked power by a public officer, especially one who, by virtue of his high office, is expected to exhibit a high standard of conduct”.

    The body regretted the situation involving the head of an agency of government set up to ensure compliance, by public officers, with the code of conduct.

    The NBA said as a member of the legal profession, Umar is expected, by the extant rules that regulate the conduct of legal practitioners in Nigeria, to maintain a high standard of professional conduct.

    Nduka noted that the prima facie evidence currently available raises questions regarding whether such standards have been met.

    The NBA announced a probe into the circumstances that led to the altercation, and promised to ensure an appropriate action is taken to address the incident.
