Kwara seeks lasting solutions to communal clashes

05 January 2016, 20:01

Abuja - The Kwara State Government has inaugurated a Judicial Commission of Enquiry to probe the deadly clashes between Share and Tsaragi communities.

Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed has charged the commission with the task of find lasting solutions to the crisis and bring peace to both communities.

This follows civil disturbances between the two communities late December, resulting in the loss of lives and destruction of property.

The terms of reference of the commission include investigating and ascertaining the immediate and remote causes of the violence, ascertaining the extent of loss and damage to lives and property and determining the conduct of any person, groups of person or associations that in any way contributed to the violent clashes.

Others terms include investigating and identifying persons or group of persons, other than security personnel, who possessed firearms during the course of the civil disturbance, identify any external or extraneous factors that led to the disturbance and make recommendations for lasting solutions to the civil disturbances.

“Anyone found culpable will be brought to book, no matter how highly placed,” said Ahmed.

He expressed hope the commission’s recommendations would be relied upon to put an end to the communal clash.

Chairman of the Commission, Justice Suleiman Akanbi, assured Ahmed the commission would discharge its responsibility without fear or favour, adding that it would not only ensure justice would be dispensed.

Other members of the judicial commission are John Ojo, Mohammed Ibrahim, Mallam Abubakar Mora, Rasaq Bola Gold, Barrister Gegele and  Alhaji Abdul Ganiyu Opeloyeru.
