Holidays stall Kano'a inquest into Fatal Zaria violence

30 December 2015, 20:10

Abuja – The Kaduna State Government has explained the deferment of the establishment of a Judicial Commission of Inquiry into the recent clash between the Nigerian Army and Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky’s movement in Zaria.

The announcement of the committee to steer the process has been deferred to the New Year.

Samuel Aruwan, the Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, said the holidays had impacted on consultations and contacts on the announcement of membership.

“Efforts have been applied to ensure that the announcement is made within the two-week window envisaged when the decision to establish the commission of inquiry was made but it has now emerged that a little  more time is required,” Aruwan said.

He said the state government has largely completed work on the composition and the terms of reference of the proposed Judicial Commission of Inquiry.

“The government is still engaged in the extensive consultations that are required prior to a formal announcement. Efforts are also being made to contact all the nominees for membership of the commission, as well as the secretariat and resource persons that will support the work of this important inquiry,” Aruwan said.

Aruwan said the government expressed its appreciation for the positive response the public has given to the establishment of the commission of inquiry and would be providing further updates as this process unfolded.

Zaria clashes between the army and Muslim protesters demonstrating against the arrest of Zakzaky’s left scores of people dead.
