CCT chairman threatens to jail journalists

Danladi Umar, chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), says he will not hesitate to send any journalist “distorting facts from proceedings” to jail.

Umar said this on Thursday while reacting to some newspaper headlines from proceedings on the last adjourned date.

The CCT judge alleged that some newspapers distorted facts when they allegedly reported that Walter Onnoghen, suspended chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), accused the federal government of tampering with his asset declaration forms.

Onnoghen is standing a six-count on false assets declaration.
