Many Nigerians have described the physical assault on a security man by Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) boss, Justice Danladi Umar and his followup statement as display of “nepotism”, and as a result, are calling for his resignation.

Danladi was captured on camera violently abusing a security guard at Abuja’s Banex Plaza and the incident has resulted brouhaha on Twitter.

A statement signed by his spokesperson, Ibraheem Al-Hassan, said the guard was ‘rude,’ and the crowd gathering at the scene of the assault was made up of ‘Biafran Boys.’

The profiling of those who gathered at the scene of the assault as “Biafran boys” in the error-ridden statement turned the heads of many Nigerians.

“Chairman of the Code of Conduct tribunal refers to citizens as Biafran Boys? This is the height of it,” activist Aisha Yesufu said on Twitter. “Justice Danladi Umar needs to be removed from office! He has shown his bias and his position requires neutrality”.

Cheta Nwanze, the managing partner at SBM Intelligence, a Lagos-based research firm, said: “The real issue in the CCT press release isn’t the rather poorly constructed English. The real issue is the attempt at ethnic profiling from a government official. What is the point of using “BIAFRAN boy” twice if not to turn the whole thing into an ‘Us v Them’ matter?”
