Jalingo – The Justice Nuhu Adi Commission investigating the violent crisis that recently engulfed Mambilla Plateau in Taraba now has two months to complete its assignment, instead of the three weeks initial frame.
Gov Darius Ishaku, who announced the extension on Sunday in Jalingo, urged members of the general public, especially interested parties, to submit their written memorandum on or before July 24.
“15 copies of every memorandum should be submitted to the Secretary of the Commission,” he said, adding that hearing would commence on Aug. 3, at Gembu, headquarters of Sardauna Local Government.
Ishaku thanked the warring parties for heeding the call to embrace dialogue toward solving disagreements, and expressed happiness that peace had been restored.
He advised the people to eschew violence and promote peace which he described as the fundamental ingredient for sustainable development.
The governor 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.
NAN reports that scores were killed in the violence that pitted farmers against herdsmen in the area.
