In an attempt to bring lasting solution to various security challenges in Niger State, Governor Abubakar Sani Bello on Thursday inaugurated two judicial commissions of inquiry to investigate clashes in three local government areas of the state.

The Justice Mohammed Mohammed led panel is to investigate the recent military/communal clash in Kpadina village and environs in Bosso Local Government Area of the state where 11 Soldiers and seven members of the communities were killed, while Justice Abdullahi Mikail, the other panel, is to investigate the immediate and remote causes of civil disturbances that occurred in May this year in Pandogari, Rafi Local Government Area of the state; Lamba village near Tunga Mallam in Paikoro Local Government area and in Barkuta Village in Bosso Local Government Area. Both incidences occurred last month.
Each of the panels has seven members and they have eight weeks to submit their reports.
Inaugurating the panels in his office in Minna, Governor Sani Bello assured that government will not interfere in the affairs of the Judicial Panels of Inquiry. He also assured members of the committees of government support.
"I will like to assure you of government support. Government will not interfere in any way in your investigations or inquiries and if for any reason someone comes to you and says Mr. Governor said this or that, please know it is not from me. If I have any issue to clarify, I will discuss it with you directly," he maintained.
The Governor noted that the panels of inquiry are expected to investigate the immediate and remote causes of the unfortunate incidences and to make recommendations on the measures and steps to be taken by the government to prevent further occurrences.
According to him, “The various incidences have happened and they are known to the public, all we just want to find out is the truth of what transpired so that we will mitigate against it from happening in the future.”
