The Civil Society Network Against Corruption (CSNAC) has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to urgently re-investigate the Chairman Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Mr. Danlami Umar, over alleged case of bribery and abuse of office.

In a petition sent to the anti-graft agency, CSNAC through its national chairman, Mr. Olanrewaju Suraju, said the myriad of witnesses on the alleged issue of bribery and abuse of office from a case between the CCT chair and a retired Comptroller of Customs, Rasheed Taiwo, appears to indicting Umar, hence the need for investigation on the matter.

“Mr. Umar was alleged to have demanded a N10 million bribe from a retired Comptroller of Customs, Rasheed Taiwo, who was at the material prosecuted at the CCT for allegedly failing to declare his asset while in office. The newspaper stated that the retired Comptroller of Customs, Mr. Taiwo had reported the demand to the EFCC and was advised to play along, leading to the payment of N1.8 million to the Chairman of CCT through the latter’s Personal Assistant,” the group said.

CSNAC demanded EFCC’s “urgent reinvestigation in this matter and subsequent prosecution of Mr. Danladi Umar where his culpability is established as asserted by your detectives in the trial of Mr. Umar’s Personal Assistant.”
