The Nigerian Senate has begun the probe of the Chairman of Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, Danladi Umar, over his alleged assault of a security guard.
The Senate is investigating the physical assault of the Security guard, Clement Sagwak, who hails from Plateau State.
The probe is sequel to a petition brought to the Senate by the Senator representing Plateau North, Istifanus Dung Gyang.
The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, then referred the petition to the Senator Ayo Akinyelure led Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions to report back within four weeks.
With this development, Umar, as well as the security guard will have to appear before the Committee.
