Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba state has given the Justice Nuhu Adi Commission investigating the violent crisis that recently engulfed the Mambilla Plateau area of state two months to carry out its probe.
Announcing the extension on Sunday in Jalingo, the governor urged members of the general public, especially interested parties, to submit their written memorandum on or before July 24.
”Fifteen copies of every memorandum should be submitted to the Secretary of the Commission,” he said.
Ishaku added that hearing would start on Aug. 3, at Gembu, headquarters of Sardauna Local Government.
He also thanked the warring parties for heeding the call to embrace dialogue toward solving disagreements, and expressed happiness that peace had been restored.
The governor advised the people to eschew violence and promote peace which he described as the fundamental ingredient for sustainable development.
Ishaku said that the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) had since distributed relief materials to the affected communities, adding that more relief materials were being taken to the affected areas.
