Written by thereachfm on March 22, 2019
Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Danladi Umar, yesterday, threatened to jail journalists over alleged misrepresentation of proceedings of the tribunal’s last sitting.
Umar said that some journalists had allegedly reported that he suspended the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen for saying that his assets declaration forms were in loose form suggesting that they may have been tampered with.
He warned that he would not hesitate to send to prison anyone who issued false reports of the tribunal’s proceedings while describing the development as a distortion of facts and misrepresentation of what transpired during the trial.
