The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)  has moved against the Chairman of the Code Tribunal, Mr. Danladi Yakubu Umar, and some of his officials over allegations of massive fraud.

The commission, acting on  petitions from  aggrieved staff  of the CCT, contractors and top public officials,  summoned Umar and some of his officials to appear before its operatives for interrogation or be declared wanted.
Umar’s summon, which is the second in two months, was to underscore the pressure  on the anti-graft agency by aggrieved workers of the tribunal, which was established to checkmate abuse of office by government officials.

But Umar kept a safe distance from the EFCC and its operatives on the fear that he could be detained in connection with the allegations that he has deprived the tribunal and staff of hundreds of millions of Naira.
