Akinyelure explained that the fresh invitation extended to Umar and his alleged victim was in connection with the withdrawal of the petition by the petitioner based on family advice.
Sagwark had appeared on African Independent Television on Sunday to deny the fact that he had withdrawn from the case.
However, the Chairman of the Committee made available to newsmen the letter of withdrawal, titled: “Re: The petition of Mr. Clement Sagwark against the brutal assaults and violent attack by the code of conduct tribunal Chairman, Danladi Umar.”
The letter, dated June 16, 2021, was addressed to the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions.
It read: “I, Clement Sagwark,the Petitioner in this matter, hereby discontinue and/or withdraw my petition wholly against Mr. Danladi Umar, the Honourable Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal. Thank you. Yours faithfully, Clement Sagwark.”
Akinyelure said: “The petitioner must appear before our panel on July 13.
“He should come and tell us what is really happening.
“We are expecting the CCT chairman too.”
It could be recalled that CCT Chairman s standing trial before the Senate panel over a case of alleged assault against Sagwak, 22, an employee of Jul Reliable Guards Services Limited.
