A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Tuesday ordered the Chairman, Code of Conduct Tribunal CCT, Danladi Umar, to appear before the Senate.
Justice Inyang Ekwo in his ruling on Tuesday, said the order was to allow Umar to face his probe over alleged public misconduct.
The judge held that the CCT chairman, Umar is answerable to the Senate on moral standards and conduct as a public officer administering the law.
Justice Ekwo stated that Umar’s suit seeking to stop his probe by the Senate lacked merit and was consequently dismissed.
Reports available to Page3news.com.ng indicated that on February 9, 2022, the Senate asked a Federal High Court in Abuja to dismiss a suit filed by Umar seeking to stop his probe for alleged misconduct.
Umar had initially gone to court to challenge the powers of the Senate to investigate him over an alleged assault he perpetrated against a security guard at the Banex Plaza.
He was alleged to have publicly assaulted one Sargwak, a security guard at the Banex Plaza in Wuse 2, Abuja, following a disagreement between them over a parking space on the premises.
