Written by on April 14, 2021

THE SPOKESMAN OF THE CODE OF CONDUCT TRIBUNAL (CCT), IBRAHEEM AL-HASSAN, HAS BEEN RECALLED BY THE MINISTRY OF INFORMATION FOLLOWING AN ERROR-STREWN PRESS STATEMENT HE ISSUED AFTER THE TRIBUNAL’S CHAIRMAN, JUSTICE UMAR DANLADI, WAS CAPTURED ON VIDEO ASSAULTING A SECURITY GUARD AT THE BANEZ PLAZA IN WUSE II, ABUJA, ON MARCH 29.

AL-HASSAN WAS REPORTEDLY REMOVED ON TUESDAY OVER SCHOOL BOY ERRORS AND THE ETHNIC PROFILING OF THE IGBOS BY LABELING THE MISCREANTS WHO ATTACKED THE CCT CHAIRMAN AS “BIAFRAN BOYS” IN THE STATEMENT.

ALTHOUGH THE SPOKESMAN LATER APOLOGIZED FOR HIS BLUNDERS, SAYING HE WAS UNDER PRESSURE.

HIS CLAIM THAT UMAR ASKED HIM TO USE THE “BIAFRAN BOYS” INFERENCE FOLLOWING SERIOUS BACKLASH AND OUTCRY FROM NIGERIANS, DID NOT APPEASE NIGERIANS WHO FELT HE WAS TRYING TO STOKE UP ETHNIC VIOLENCE.

THE CHIEF REGISTRAR OF CCT, ABDULMALIK SHAIBU, WHO CONFIRMED AL-HASSAN’S RECALL BY THE MINISTRY, SAID A REPLACEMENT HAD ALREADY BEEN SENT TO THE TRIBUNAL.
