Watch the CCT Chairman lose his Temper & Threaten to Hold Saraki’s Lawyer in Contempt



Justice Danladi-Umar

Justice Danladi-Umar

There is so much drama surrounding this Saraki trial.

The Code of Conduct Tribunal Chairman Justice Danladi Umar has threatened to hold one of Bukola Saraki‘s lawyers in contempt of court.

It began after the Chairman dismissed Saraki’s motion for him to disqualify himself from the case. As he ordered the continuation of the trial, one of Saraki’s lawyers stood up to say that Umar should at least listen to the motion. He went to to say that the motion was filed because “there are too many cloudy things about your (Umar) relationship with the EFCC”

Umar ordered the lawyer to sit down several times, but his orders fell on deaf ears, until he threatened to hold him in contempt of court.

    Well I can understand your frustration my honorable Judge. However you should let him finish and when he is done charge him with contempt or tell the police to work him out. Don’t argue with fools hence people who are not listening in on the argument with categorize you as one.

    It’ normal to make mistake and get angry once in a while. I guess you’re learning fast. Maybe next time ban the use of mobile phone and cameras in the court room. Just an illustrator will do.

    What is this one saying @Mr X?? Pls if u don’t understand what is going on then don’t comment naa! The stupid justice Danladi Umar IS SUPPOSED TO HEAR THE MOTION AND AT LEAST RULE ON IT!!! NOT AND A B S I L U T E L Y NOT SHOUT AT THE COUNSEL AND ORDER HIM TO SIT DOWN THE WAY HE DID. I am a lawyer, and that judge has seriously erred under the law. If uhad watched the video, u would even have noticed that even the prosecuting counsel (counsel to the EFCC sef o) was trying to seriously calm the mumu judge down and make him see that he wad erring and making an utter num of himself. He just got cleared of any wrong doing by the EFCC yesterday. YESTERDAY!! WHAT DO U THINK HE WOULD DO TO THE CASE CONCERNING SARAKI WITH EFCC AS THE PROSECUTORS?? That’s right, ur guess is as good as mine dude.

    Lol, this was planned joor. It so happened that there was a video camera on standby? Saraki’s lawyers wanted to deliberately rile the chairman up and they succeeded. See how he quickly changed his voice and started apologizing when security men arrived. Now the rest of us are left wondering whether the man is fit to head the tribunal. Awon smart ass lawyers??
    At the end of the day, Saraki remains an egghead. He’s just too proud to resign honorably. Smh. Barao.

      Whatever the case is, planned or not, it’s obvious Saraki’s lawyer is a crafty manipulator. And like I have said, this case will go on without end.

      …pretty sure the whole efcc liason man crowning the CCT chairman was planned as well.

    1. Isn’t it illegal to film/record court proceedings?

    2. Saraki and co tried to set the judge up so that they can get people on their side? Or so that he (the judge) can be viewed incompetent and biased?

    3. Saraki cannot get people who don’t like him to sympathise with him.

    4. We now know the judge is emotional and biased. They should change the judge and install someone (a judge) with a clean(er) record.

    5. Na wa.

    He is NOT a judge, merely an adminstrative chairman of a tribunal, nothing more and nothing less.

    Not everyone is Jega and I agree with Cindy, there was Phone camera on standby so that there will be a public outcry to remove the justice from the case. I’m sick of this trial, the plot is obviously to have the case tally for years on end. Things will never change.

    Why has Justice Danladi refused to recuse himself from this case? Is it a must? If a judge is accused is it not normal that he recuses himself from the case? O di egwu

  11. reason why

    April 21, 2016 at 5:16 pm

    reason y Nigeria is not growing. should a responsible man/lawyer even fight for a thief?

    all the evidences of payment in GTbank has been burnt

    we should have the address of the 90lawyers fighting for saraki and go burn their house and family

    if they like to be a scapegoat they should continue

    • Really???

      April 22, 2016 at 6:27 am

      In fact, he said burn their house and family, and three buffoons have liked this comment. God save all your souls

    Nobody records anything when there is a sitting even if it’s an arbitration. It was obviously a plot to rile the man up and they succeeded. It shows me is that the man is under a lot of pressure and blew up because he knows the motion was brought for time wasting purposes. It also shows me that Saraki is guilty as sin and wants to stop this trial by all means.

    this is what happens when you have a bozo as a judge. The lawyer has every BLOODY RIGHT to move his motion. if the judge doesn’t like it, he rules against it, simples. You cannot even if you were not born of a woman ask a lawyer not to move a motion as long as the motion is correctly filed and properly before the court.
    This judge will never recover from the shame of this case.
