Rivers Rerun: Wike Inaugurates Commission To Probe Killings
BEVERLY HILLS, April 07, (THEWILL) – The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike on Wednesday inaugurated the Justice Monima Danagogo-led Judicial Commission of Inquiry to look into the killings recorded during the March 19 re-run elections for the National and House of Assembly seats in the state, with a charge that its report should be submitted within one month.
Wike, who expressed concern over reported cases of killings during the exercise, urged the panel to dig up every detail on the incidents and also determine the extent of damages recorded in terms of property and other valuables during the re-run elections.
According to him, “The commission has one month, beginning today, to submit its report. We must know those involved in the killings. We must get to the root of the violence during the March 19 re-run elections. Since we were not at the location of the violence, we rely on the Judicial Commission of Inquiry to investigate what took place.”
