The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has filed a two-count charge of fraud against Danladi Umar, chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

In the charge sheet seen by TheCable, the anti-graft agency alleged that Umar demanded a bribe of N10 million from one Rasheed Taiwo in 2012.

Although Umar had been cleared over the same issue over a year ago, discovery of fresh clues was said to be responsible for the fresh suit.

The two count charges are:

Count 1 reads: “That you, DANLADI YAKUBU UMAR, being the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal and presiding over a case with Charge No. CCT/ABJ/03/12, involving one Rasheed Owolabi Taiwo, sometime in 2012, at Abuja, within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court did ask for the sum of N10,000,000.00 (Ten Million Naira) from the said Rasheed Owolabi Taiwo, for a favour to be afterwards shown to him in relation to the pending Charge (No. CCT/ABJ/03/12) in discharge of your official duties and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 12(1)(a) & (b) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act, 2003.
